Washington, Dec 12: Jim Carrey is certainly a perfectionist when it comes to actor—the actor has mastered basic Korean for a scene in his new movie ‘Yes Man’.

The comic-genius was required to converse in Korean with a bridal saleswoman for a scene in the comedy.

And the funnyman took it as an opportunity to get to grips with a language he`d always been interested in.

"It took about four weeks of every day studying it phonetically. It was so difficult. It was the hardest thing I`ve ever done in my life,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

He added: "I had a Korean coach who literally was afraid to go back to Korea if I got it wrong. He`s telling me, `No, this is serious. I will be hurt.`"
