    Basically RM being the only designated English speaker in the group,I can't help but feel they will be more relatable and interesting if they actually spoke English,I mean I know they trying but Imo having 1 speaker really makes most of their western appearances cringey.
    Lastly fake love is a really good song but it could have been a really great one if it wasn't for Jin/jimin uhhh weird pronunciations. I'M SO SICK OF THIS FAKU LOBE,FAKU LOBE.
    It always bothered me,I had to put out there and I'm sure I'm not the only one

    I know that Jungkook has stated that they have started to focus more on learning English. They will hopefully get to a point where they can speak well enough to talk on their own.

    I don't mind their accents coming through when they sing in English one bit tbh. It actually bothers me if they speak English perfectly since i'm not used to them without their Korean accents so in the off chance that they pronounce something in English absolutely perfectly it's like sis where'd u go that don't sound like you? Just because i'm so used to their accents.

    Even if they learned English, there's no guarantee they'll be able to express themselves better in it. They may be able to speak more but it doesn't mean they'll be able to say exactly what's on their mind, even Namjoon sometimes gets tied up in words trying to figure out how to say what he wants to say. Sure it can sometimes be a little awkward but I feel like they'll still be more relatable and be able to say stuff that's more interesting if they just speak in Korean and have a translator with them.

    I dont get it though

    They've been "learning" English for a long long time and there is little to no improvement

    Wonder Girls picked up English super fast when they started promoting in US and almost everyone other than Sohee could speak fluently in a substantially shorter amount of time

    What's the deal with Jimin not pronouncing it how you do? It's not so horribly bad that you can't understand it. And it's not like your faves that can't speak English will pronounce it any differently.

    Do you speak any languages other than English? No, I don't mean one you're learning, I mean one that's basically your first language. If they were to speak like Americans do, people would bash at them for 'forgetting' their home language.

    Keep your fake concern to yourself.

    I'm pretty sure if someone made like this thread about Jisoo talking shit about her pronunciation, pretty sure you would riot.

    There's nothing wrong with having English representatives in a group

    to West GP,it wouldn't have drastically improved Fake love.
    As the song is not an English Track nor a club/pop hit like Gangman,Despasito.

    Amazing how far they've gotten even with "cringy" interviews. Not like the boys have time to sit and practice with a tutor when they've been busy touring and prepping for the album.

    So you feel they would be better Korean artists if they were less Korean...The Grammys had a really good message this year that a lot of artists kept repeating. Basically that It doesn't matter where you come from or what other people say you should do, as long as you are doing what you love being you is good enough. BTS killed it and were the talk of the Grammys. Literally celebrities among celebrities. Their interviews were cute and sincere. If they choose to learn english fluently fine, if they don't fine, They're doing great and are amazing either way.

    It took me three years to learn english and I still make mistakes a lot of grammar and pronunciation mistakes I can understand English but sometimes I can't express myself while speaking , and I don't have a busy schedule like them so I think they are doing well you can see they have improved since 2017

    Wonder Girls just didn't pick it up. They themselves said that they had tutors and were going to classes in the US.
