South African actress and activist Nomzamo Mbatha consoles a terrified Jungkook
As Jungkook arrived backstage to record his pre-show interview with the host, it felt like English was not his mother tongue, unlike Korean, which he can speak fluently. I shared with Nomzamo Mbatha that her ‘English is bad’ to which the actress replied that ‘her English is also very bad.’ While waiting for the interview to begin, the South African actress shared that she feels comfortable speaking Zulu because that is her mother tongue in South Africa.
