1) This is Chloë Grace Moretz on SNL Korea this past weekend. 2) There’s a Korean version of Saturday Night Live. 3) Chloë Grace Moretz speaks Korean in the sketch. 4) I would say Chloë Grace Moretz’s Korean is pretty decent, but I do not speak Korean, so I do not know.

Moretz’s grasp (I guess) of the language actually shouldn’t be that surprising—actors have to learn accents all the time. Also, this isn’t her first time on SNL Korea, even, but last time she spoke in English.


Frankly, I have no idea what’s happening in this sketch, just know the (best? weirdest?) thing about it is Moretz’s facial expressiveness and the commitment to melodrama from all the actors.

Google tells me the video’s YouTube caption (written in Korean) translates to something like: “Chloë learned ardent Korean dramas! Kimchi ssadaegi + Min So Hee transforming ?!”

True... Moretz wrote in an Instagram post that she’s “the very First American on SNL Live and to speak in only Korean!!!” Seems like she really enjoyed the trip (“so much amazing Korean food in front of me face,” she writes...), which gave her a chance to chill with the K-pop band Mamamoo.
