Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is making the rounds on social media after a video emerged of him greeting a voter in Chinese, who quickly corrected him by saying: “No, I’m Korean.”

According to Sky News Australia, the moment occurred while he was campaigning in Sydney.

Morrison had reportedly been mingling with locals in the area and visiting a restaurant in Strathfield, which is a suburb in Sydney, when the gaffe took place.

In a video of an exchange he shared with one local woman outside the restaurant, Morrison said: “Hello, how are you? Ni hao, how are you?” “Ni hao” is Chinese for “hello” in English.

“No, no, no, I’m Korean,” the woman replied.
