On the episode, Kang and Kyung Kyu asked Dara about the secret to learn a foreign language. The former K-pop girl group 2NE1 member was a singer and actress in the Philippines before pursuing a singing career in South Korea.
Dating using the foreign language can make learning it very quickly, according to Dara. She is almost a native speaker of Filipino at this point, she said.
