A hilarious video of Americans pronouncing -- or rather trying to pronounce -- K-Pop idol names is getting fans majorly LOL'ing.

BuzzFeed published a video showing a group of people attempting to navigate their tongues around the names of A-list Korean idol stars from PSY to Suzy.

After first struggling to get their head around PSY’s real name, Park Jae Sang, confusion truly began to take over when the participants were prompted to pronounce 2PM’s Ok Taecyeon. “OKAY Taec Yeon?!” said one participant, while another said “I would just call the person OKAY!”

SHINee’s Jonghyun got the group in a muddle as well as one person pronounced the band “Shinnee” while another momentarily confused Kim Jonghyun with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un!

Easiest on the tongue looked to be the nation’s sweetheart Bae Suzy, while both G-Dragon and 2NE1 demonstrated their reach to the Western world as two participants were already familiar with their names.

Tell us: Which idol names are you guilty of mispronouncing?
