K-pop stars cheer on student test takers
Celebrities uploaded hand-written massages on Wednesday to root for students who are taking the College Scholastic Ability Test today.
JYP Entertainment, which is home to K-pop acts like Miss A and 2PM, posted photos of singer-actor Suzy and Ok Taec-yeon to its Facebook page.
In the photo, Suzy (pictured), a member of the girl group Miss A, holds a message card that reads, “Hope you will excel on the test.”
Singer-actor Ok, a member of the boy group 2PM, holds a similar message card in another photo.
A-Cube Entertainment, which represents Apink member Jung Eun-ji, also uploaded a photo of Jung holding a sketchbook with the hand-written messages: “You must be so nervous, but don’t freak out. I believe you will get through it.” Lately, the singer is appearing in the drama series “Sassy, Go Go.”
Singer-actor Park Hyung-sik, a member of the boy group ZE:A, uploaded a photo of himself to his Instagram account and wrote, “I hope you will reap good results because you have been trying hard.”
Meanwhile, a slew of K-pop singers are taking the test today. Yugyeom of Got7, Yuju of GFriend and Chaewon of April will take the test, which takes nearly eight hours to complete.
