Chloë Grace Moretz walks on the streat of Seoul before she guesting at K-Pop And K-Dramas
Chloe Grace Moretz just made history…and a savage cabbage attack was involved. While in South Korea to do promo as the brand ambassador of Sudden Attack, a first-person shooter multiplayer PC game (you can watch her play the video game for a half hour, if you’d like), the actress also became the first American guest on SNL Korea over the weekend in a hilarious Korean language skit alongside comedian Yoo Se Yoon involving a daughter-in-law who’s seen one too many K-dramas in her lifetime.
Wearing a traditional hanbok, the 5th Wave star keeps on hilariously mistaking what’s being said at the table during the sketch, dramatically overreacting to each word and taking offense to everything: Drinks go flying, juice goes dribbling out of her mouth — and yes, even an innocent cabbage gets ravaged in Moretz’s messy path of destruction, as she slaps Yoon with the, um, unconventional weapon. (Fun fact: That’s a parody of a famous scene from Everybody, Kimchi!, according to AllKPop.)
“Exciting to be the very First American on SNL Live and to speak in only Korean!!! #Korea #KimchiSlap #NOWOLSAEEE,” she wrote on Instagram yesterday.
She wasn’t just having fun on screen, either: Chloe also basically lived out every K-pop lover’s dream while in Seoul, meeting SHINee’s Taemin and K-pop girl group troupe MAMAMOO. (Cue gleeful meltdowns from the online K-pop community.) Here’s hoping she finally gets to meet CL on the next trip.
Thank you so much to all my amazing Korean fans and to all the people we met over this trip who welcomed us in and made us feel so connected to your beautiful culture!! Haha the bottom left pic is my omg so much amazing Korean food in front of me face 😉 Thank you thank you thank you a million times !! I’ll be back soon ❤️😍😘 #Korea!!!
The actress visited Korea on Mar. 3 as the new face of “Sudden Attack,” a First-Person Shooter (FPS) game popular in Korea. Moretz also starred on the latest episode of “SNL Korea 7,” which aired on Mar. 5, as an adorable drama queen who has spent a little too much time watching K-dramas.Korean American celebrity Eric Nam will accompany her during events as her friend and interpreter. Nam accompanied her last visit to Korea in May 2015.
