The Black Panther praise is nonstop and rightfully so …even down to Lupita Nyong’o’s lingo in the film.
The Huffington Post reports that people are praising the star’s display of Korean-language skills during a scene set in Busan.
Also @Lupita_Nyongo speaks better Korean than me. Her pronunciation was very good.

Lupitas Korean was actually pretty understandable and not bad considering. I wasn’t entirely sure if the ajumma was speaking Korean or another language altogether.

Lupita’s character Nakia speaks Korean during a scene where she convinces a fisherwoman to allow her crew to enter a casino that’s behind a fish market.
