Pilkyu was born in South Korea and spent 20 years living in the country before coming to Tokyo to pursue his undergraduate degree at Waseda University. He has a love for studying languages and picked English and Japanese back in high school as his major and sub-major respectively.
Considering the enormous amount of time and hard work one has to spend on learning a foreign tongue, speaking two or three languages is itself an incredible skill.
