Younha appeared on the February 4 installment of KBS 2TV's '1 Vs. 100' where she revealed her reasons for dropping out of high school.
She said, "I did not want to lose the chance to debut as a singer so I dropped out of high school." MC Han Suk Joon said, "You dropped out of high school and promoted as a singer in Japan. How were you able to make such a daring decision at such a young age?"
Younha said, "At the time, a Korean drama was produced based on a Japanese one. I took part in the project to create an OST in Korean. I thought I might not be able to become a singer without this chance I had. I regret it."
She also talked about her experiences in Japan, saying, "When I was promoting in Japan, I had no notion of money. My mother gave me an allowance of 5,000 yen (~ $50 USD) and I would squander 3,000 yen (~ $30 USD) at a rotating sushi bar."
What do you think, did Younha make the right decision in dropping out to become a singer?
