On the July 21 airing of SBS powerFM's 'Cultwo Show,' John Park explained why he doesn't use English as often anymore.

The DJs said, "A few years ago, we saw John Park interviewing with EBS radio, but he replied to an English question in Korean, so we laughed."  They asked him why he did that and John Park responded, "It's become a habit not to use English.  When I speak in English, I heard, 'You're showing off,' and, 'You seem cocky.'  That's why I practiced Korean a lot.  Seeing as how I don't use English, my tongue has hardened, and Korean has become comfortable for me."


Well, that's sort of a shame about English...

My thing too, is if your making a lot of money, get into learning a different language, its to your advantage. Also, a lot of artist started their popularity in Japan, and they converse in Nihongo

The people that say "You're showing off," and, "You seem cocky." when he speaks english are just jealous of his language skills

Cause when you're not good at Korean that's what you do.

I guess that's why they joke around telling him his english is weird on programs ^^

You should've watched the Happy Together episode recently when he came out with Henry, Kangnam, Sana, Sorn, and that Chinese girl from Cosmic Girls. Yoo Jae Suk was clowning him so much about his English. Crazy funny.

I just watched it hahaha last time when he was on happy together it was the Korean - American special and yeah ... You can guess how that went xD just without kangnam and Henry hahaha

As someone who speaks multiple languages I understand this. But he should ignore people who tell him to stop because if he doesn't speak English he'll eventually forget it :/

I like john park. I like his honesty.

That's true, a lot of time when English speaking idols speak English, some idiot always has to comment that they're showing off or trying so hard to be American or whatever.

What I can say is, If they talk to you in English, you should answer in English, unless you cant speak English and use a translator and speak your native tongue.

The End
