TL;DR – Brie Larson shouted “Love tongue!” instead of “I love you!” to the fans.
Hollywood stars Robert Downey Jr, Jeremy Renner and Brie Larson along with producer Kevin Feige and director Anthony & Joe Russo were in Seoul, South Korea on the April 15 for the Avengers: Endgame fan event.
Close to 4,000 fans from all over the country have gathered to catch a glimpse of the superstars. The fans also prepared light sticks with ‘A’ signs on them to welcome the Avengers: Endgame stars. Some fans who attended the event were also decked out in Avengers costumes. #AforEffort
On top of welcoming the superheroes with a purple ocean out of the Avengers light sticks, fans in Korea also prepared a special video for the superstars. The Korean fans made sure that the cast of the movie felt like stars, don’t they?

The fans then began chanting, “Thank You, Avengers!” at the end of the video as they waved their light sticks.
Check out the video below:
The overwhelming love and enthusiasm from the Korean fans probably got to Brie Larson the most. She eventually got visibly emotional and teary-eyed later and was seen hiding her face as she wiped her tears away. Awww.
I’m sure Brie Larson did her homework and practiced some Korean so that she could communicate with the Korean fans. Besides flashing the K-pop “finger hearts” gesture to the fans, she was also shouting “Love tongue!” to the fans.
Erm, except she was probably trying to say “사랑해요” (Sa-rang-hae-yo), which meant “I love you” in Korean, but mispronounced the word and ended up saying ““사랑혀” (Sa-rang-hyeo) instead, which literally means “Love tongue”.
Good effort though!
