I came across to Facebook today and one of my friend posted a video regarding this Korean actress from My Girl and Green Rose Lee Da Hae imitates 3 different accent (American,British and Filipino) in a sentence “Excuse me; I'm a little bit thirsty. Can I have a glass of water please?"
Alot of Filipinos reacted to the video and find it very insulting especially to the English teachers in the country.
At first, I found it a little bit offensive for the reason that I disagree that it was a Filipino accent. This came from a country in which some people can't understand nor speak English and most Korean go to Philippines just to learn and study English.
She apologizes right away on her twitter account. As a Filipino, I will never let anyone ruin the reputation of our fellowmen especially Filipino teacher who are competent enough in teaching different field of studies. However, we are just human. We are not perfect. Let's not be hypocrite. We Filipinos also make fun of our own accent, it just happen that other race making fun of us and it was aired on television. Sometimes we tend to do foolish things and there are times that our intention is good but others misunderstood it. Let us try to forgive others and forgive her. This is just my two cents and you have yours. Feel free to comment.
