Idols Share Thoughts After College Entrance Exam And Talk Future Plans
This year’s College Scholastic Ability Test (hereafter CSAT) is finally complete!
High school seniors across Korea, including several idols, spent the entire day at test centers on November 15 for a chance to enter college.
Following the conclusion of the exam, stars shared their thoughts with news outlets through their agencies.
IZ*ONE’s Kim Chae Won commented, “I was very nervous, but I worked hard as much as I have prepared. I will do my best to impress many people by working hard with IZ*ONE promotions from now on.”
On what she wants to do now that the exam is over, she shared, “I want to eat delicious food with our members today,” and added, “If time allows, I want to go on a trip with IZ*ONE members and make memories.”
Stray Kids’ Hyunjin and Seungmin revealed that they are continuing the day with their performance on “M!Countdown” and a radio schedule. Seungmin said that he hopes to hear from their members, “You’ve worked hard.”
Seungmin shared on the exam, “I was mostly nervous because on taking the CSAT that only happens once in a lifetime. As much as all of the students worked hard on preparing, I also gained strength to take it. It felt like the last rite of passage before becoming an adult, so I also felt disappointment thinking, ‘I’m really graduating now.’”
Hyunjin commented, “The CSAT really felt far away, so it felt weird to already be taking it. I worked to do my best.”
Both members also shared that they want to take their exam identification slips to go get discounts at the movies and amusement parks with friends.
On future plans, Seungmin shared, “There is a lot I want to do and a lot I want to learn, so I am planning carefully. I am focusing on group promotions for the time being!” Hyunjin revealed, “I hope to enter college. It is exciting because I think I could learn a lot.”
fromis_9’s Chaeyoung remarked, “I was really nervous, but I worked hard on the exam as much as I have prepared, and I have no regrets. All the test takers across the country, you have worked so hard until now, and I hope you will get the good results you want.”
When asked what she wants to do now, she responded, “First of all, I miss my members. I want to eat good food with them and chat. It’s something so small but brings the most happiness.”
Golden Child’s Bomin commented, “I was nervous when I was first entering the test center, but I worked hard on the exam with the support of other students and our fans and while eating the lunch filled with our members’ love. I thank everyone who cheered me on. However, it is very sad that high school graduation is already approaching.”
He continued, “The lunch that our members packed me was so delicious, and especially the Spam rolled omelet was so delicious, so I am going to run and hug the members who made it,” and added, “More than anything, I want to go to the amusement park and receive the discount with the exam identification slip.”
