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!

Words cannot express how much I love Kentucky Fried Movie.

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?
