Chloe Grace Moretz makes TV history in South Korea

Actress Chloe Grace Moretz has become the first American to appear on South Korea's version of comedy show Saturday Night Live.

The Kick-Ass star made TV history as she joined funnyman Yoo Se-yoon for a Korean-language sketch, in which she portrayed an American girl who prepares to meet her local boyfriend's parents by watching and imitating characters from Korean soap operas.


The segment featured Chloe's reactions becoming more and more over-the-top as the skit went on, ending with the actress, who even showed off her language skills by uttering a few phrases in Korean, slapping her boyfriend with kimchi, a popular pickled vegetable dish. The sketch was reportedly a play on a famous 2014 scene from Korean comedy series Everybody, Kimchi!, according to AllKPop.com.


The 19-year-old was in South Korea to promote Sudden Attack, a first-person shooter PC game for which she is a celebrity ambassador.
