As Ningning is a foreign member hailing from China, Kim Young Chul asked her,

How long have you been learning [Korean]?

—Kim Young Chul

Ningning revealed that she came to Korea in 2016, and has been learning Korean ever since!

I came to Korea in ’16 [2016].

—Ningning

He then questioned her about anything she finds difficult to pronounce in particular, and Ningning revealed that there was a certain line in their debut song “Black Mamba” that she really found challenging!

For pronunciation…Ah, our song! My part? Where I say, “You’re charming but I gotta deny.”

Whenever I sing that part, it comes out weird.

—Ningning

Ning then elaborated on how she tends to mess up that one line each time, and revealed why she finds it so challenging!

It’s supposed to be pronounced as “You’re charming”, but sometimes I say, “You’re charm! ing!”. I emphasize it.

In Chinese, you usually pronounce things strongly, so I find it a bit difficult to switch to Korean.

—Ningning

Kudos to Ningning for pulling through and delivering flawlessly, anyway!
