like in my chorus, we sing songs in different languages, but we can't speak them.


Hm, that's true.

I guess I'd settle for anyone that can say English words close to the way they're pronounced. And put them in their songs so they make sense.

Super Junior should definatly NOT sing in English
I was watching Super Junior Full House and was laughing so much
Aside from Ki Bum their English is horrible and they're too caught up in what they perceive people talk like (Hee Chul and his yo man/yeah in practically every English sentence)

if they do sing in english they should make sure that the grammer is correct and that they pronoun word properly. It's hard to understand if they don't

usually the trend in asian english fluency/pronunciation/quality is

China>Korea>Japan

BECAUSE

a. China has the different tones, which may help in English emphasis of syllables. On the other hand, Korean and Japanese are monotone, therefore have a hard time with emphasis.
b. China has more diverse sounds as opposed to Korean and Japanese, as does English with its wide range of sounds.
c. Unlike China and Korea, Japanese does not have any ending sounds besides "n", or as it is sometimes romanized, "m" there are no japanese syllables or words that end in "b", for example.

Hmm... most Korean artists are more capable in singing in English compared to Japanese and Chinese artists. But we all know that there are exceptions, such as Utada, Melody, etc...
