K-pop stars take tests, too

Yesterday was the day tens of thousands of young Koreans took the College Scholastic Ability Test, hoping to make it into the best university possible, and teenage K-pop stars were no exception.

Kim Nam-joo of the girl group A Pink took the test in Geumcheon, southwestern Seoul.

“I’m getting more nervous as I get in front of the school,” she said before going in to take the test.

“But I felt the support of the many people who showed their encouragement, so I think now I need to focus well and take the test.”

She also said she couldn’t sleep the night before because she was so nervous.

Nam-joo turned up for the CSAT carrying a boxed lunch that a fellow member of her group made for her.

Other idols taking the test yesterday included Sung-jae of BTOB, Hyewon of Five Dolls, and Kwangmin, Youngmin and Minwoo of Boyfriend.
