Right now I can't speak Korean

Via Angry Asian Man: This MadTV sketch skillfully skewers Korean soaps:



Added joke: after meeting the heroine, his spoken Korean doesn't match up with the subtitles at all. He says:

"Right now I can't speak Korean."
"Right now, my stomach is too full."
"I'm sorry."

Mmm...project: A secret history of native-language nonsense. I distinctly remember the long final sequence of Kentucky Fried Movie ("Fistful of Yen"), in which the Asian warlord (?) issues directives to his troops—except he's simply naming various Korean foods!

I remember renting this with my cousin after seeing AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON in the theater...which (I think) was by the same people?
