Host Shin Dong Yup revealed that Ham So Won learned Chinese in just a year and that the reason for it was clubbing.

Ham So Won became fluent in Chinese after spending just 1 year in China. And what’s surprising is that she says the secret behind that was clubbing every single day.

In response, Ham So Won revealed the details of her clubbing process and that quite a lot of effort went into it.

During the afternoons, I looked through the texts that I exchanged with guys the night before to memorize words, and I even continued to exchange texts. And at night, I went out clubbing again so that I could practice it on them.

Following the shocking reveal, Shin Dong Yup joked that she must have exchanged numbers with guys she didn’t even like in order to improve her Chinese.

You probably gave guys your number even if you weren’t interested in them just so you could practice…
