Wearing a pink salwar suit, she joins her hands in ‘namaste’ in front of the monument while posing with her parents.

“Today I showed Taj Mahal to my parents…and they fell in love with the Taj Mahal. I’m happy to show them Incredible India and our guide said I speak Hindi and I wear kurti so I’m totally Indian (sic),” she wrote on Instagram.

“I love India, Bollywood movies and songs. That’s why I have taken up learning Hindi professionally. Earlier I had picked up bits and pieces of the language from YouTube and from Google Translate. But, now I want to be able to talk better in Hindi and show people like those here who like Kdrama and Kpop that there is also a Korean who loves India and is learning their language,” Moneycontrol quoted her saying.

Isn’t it amazing to see a person of a different nationality, in this case, a Korean national, embrace our culture? 😀
