U-Kiss’ Alexander speaks 7 languages!

June 1, 2009

This shoot is bananas! Did you guys know that Alexander from U-Kiss speaks seven languages? At first I was wondering how this could be possible, considering Alexander is not yet 20 (his birthday is in July). However, a little research yielded some answers.

Alexander’s father is Taiwanese (Mandarin), and his mother is Korean (Korean). When he was young, he lived in Macau for a long time. Up until ’99, Macau was a Portuguese colony, so it has two official languages: Cantonese and Portuguese. At some point Alexander moved to the US to study, where he presumably learned English. Later, he easily picked up Spanish because it’s similar to Portuguese, and took private lessons in French and Japanese.

If you count those up, it’s actually eight languages, but I guess he mostly knows just the seven… lol.

The only unfortunate thing here is that Alexander belongs to U-Kiss, who doesn’t seem to have any luck with stylists. Therefore, he is saddled with an outdated look. It’s a shame that such an intelligent guy has to look like… this.

I have to give props to Bump This for her article that mentions multinational groups. Otherwise, I would still be in the dark about this interesting fact (also, I wanted to pimp Bump This cause it’s awesome lol)! Even though I’m not quite into U-Kiss, I still like learning things about its members.

Edit 4/10: I can now see that everyone is intrigued by this topic! Nowadays both Alexander and U-Kiss are doing very well. U-Kiss has a great style recently and to make things better, they are moving to the top! I apologize for not including my sources originally. I really did do my research, although I have since heard things that might change the number of many languages Alexander can speak. No matter what, we all know he is really an intelligent guy, despite the “true” number of languages he knows. If I find out more I’ll update.

    Even though Macau has only one official language, nowadays, let’s not forget that it only gain is independency in ’99, wich it’s recent! Many people speak it and maybe there are parents that pass it to their children! It’s a cultural thing and if they lose it, it’ll be a shame. Also portuguese it’s a romantic and beautiful language (this is me defending my country, hihihihihihi) and it’s part of History.

    Filipino would be next because he has Filipino decent, because his grandfather is a Spanish miztizo from Philippines, maybe he would be interested with the language…
