He never spoke Korean before
and he learned it just for the movie

Nishijima Hidetoshi
He was indeed the male lead in Kim Taehee's Japanese debut drama
He's also the male lead in Drive My Car
And also the male lead in What Did You Eat Yesterday?

From an article: 
Hidetoshi Nishijima at the press conference for the movie 'Genome Hazard' (Director Kim Seongsu) held at the entrance of Lotte Cinema Konkuk University, about acting in Korean. He said "Korean was so hard. I can't really say anything else aside from, I put a lot of effort into it. The person who taught me also worked really hard. It's all thanks to that person."

"His Korean..."

Here, he's acting while switching back and forth from Japanese to Korean

1. Wow I was shockedㅋㅋㅋㅋ Seriously he's the Japanese person I know with the best best Korean pronunciationㅋㅋㅋㅋ His pronunciation is good and his intonation is also good, he doesn't have any awkward accentㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. Wow I didn't know intonation would be this important. At this rate, he must be born to learn languages

3. Strawberry Nightㅠㅠㅠ

4. what the? That's his pronunciation? I was wondering how natural he could sound but this is so natural hul...

5. Wow daebak, I think he must have a talent? Of course, there must've been a lot of effort put into it.. But he sounds like a Japanese person who has lived in Korea for a long time 

6. For real, he sounds Korean 

7. This person... Has better intonation than I do 

8. I seriously thought it was dubbing, he's way too natural???

9. His Korean is good and he's doing it while actingㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷ Impressive

10. Maybe he's good at mimicking because he's an actor but wow he's freaking goodㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's fascinating. I don't think all actors and singers can do this. There are so many actors and singers who try to speak a foreign langauge but only a few of them can do it wellㅋㅋ
