The idol stars who will be graduating high school this month

It’s now February, which means it’s time for high school students in Korea to graduate, and the idols are no exception.

Idols born in 1993 and 1994 are preparing for their graduation, and so are the media and the fans who are planning to attend the ceremonies.

The first to graduate will be C-real leader Chemi who is currently a student at Chungdam High School in Seoul. Her graduation ceremony will take place on the 3rd, and she will be in attendance to receive her diploma.

On the 8th, KARA‘s maknae Jiyoung who is attending Muhak Girls’ High School in Seoul will also be in attendance to receive her diploma. As long as something new doesn’t pop up on her schedule, Jiyoung will be at the ceremony and plans to spend the day with her teachers and her friends.


B.A.P is determined to conquer the world with their music

Rookie boy group B.A.P made a powerful entrance into the music scene on January 26th with their new song, “Warrior“.

Although there are numerous new rookies arising in the industry, the boys seemed unfazed and performed on live stages without a glitch.

The members who have all colored their hair to platinum blonde met with OSEN on the 2nd for an interview. The group consists of Bang & Zelo who previously made their names known as a duo group, as well as Himchan, Dae Hyun, Young Jae, and Jong Up. It’s rare for new rookies to draw large crowds at new events, but an impressive 3,000 fans were in attendance at their massive showcase that was held in Seoul on January 28th.

They say that we are a powerful new rookie group, and although it’s a bit burdensome, we will work to exceed your expectations. Our fame hasn’t really sunk in yet, but we do know that our fan cafe members are growing by the day, which we are utterly grateful for. Thank you so much. We currently have 2,000 members (laughs).” (Daehyun)
