While promoting their 'This Is Us' and 'Midnight Memories' releases last year in Japan, the One Direction boys were cute and playful, and stylish. But they also gamely attempted to learn Japanese with a little help from the lovely lady who was interviewing them!

First, can we just say that we crush hard on Niall Horan's nerdy glasses, Zayn Malik's flannel scarf, Louis Tomlinson's ankles, Liam Payne's dapper coat and Harry Styles' use of the word "drats" during the interview.

But we absolutely swooned over their attempt to speak phrases in a foreign language. They tried really hard and incorporated some other non-verbal cues into the mix.

They practiced on camera and played close attention and had fun with it.

Notice that Hazza reaches over and touches Liam's ear while he is talking and acting as a bit of a 1D spokesman, but for what reason? We're not quite sure what little ear tug was about. Who cares, though? It showed how close the 1D boys are.
