Can this bird actually understand Korean?
In a reality show called “Bon Voyage,” one of South Korean pop industry’s most famous boybands BTS goes to Hawaii for a vacation. In one of the episodes, BTS member Seokjin greets a bird staying in a cage close to their hotel.
The Korean singer is stunned when the bird bows after he greets it in Korean. He even asks at one point whether the bird can actually understand “annyeonghaseyo,” which is Korean for “Hello.”
Seokjin then greets the bird again, and the latter bows in return again. The two seem to be engaged in a friendly “bowing battle.”
Watch the video below to witness the singer’s genuine surprise at the bird’s culturally appropriate greeting.
