Fans are quite shocked by AOA Mina's academic history. 

On May 11, netizens pointed out that according to her Wikipedia description, Mina dropped out of Jaesong Girls' Middle School. The page lists various facts about Mina including her full name, birthday, debut date, label, group name, and more. Under Mina's education category, it states, "Jaesong Girls Middle School (Dropout)."

Netizens seemed to be unaware of Mina's academic history as they commented, "Hul, what?? I don't think it's because she was a trainee. If she practiced for that long then her skills would've been better", "What! There are still people out there who've only graduated elementary school? lol", "Who cares if she's an elementary or a college graduate.. She's doing fine with her career without education", etc. 

Mina's short-term education has brought back the a previous incident involving AOA, in which netizens commented on Seolhyun and Jimin's supposed lack of historical knowledge. Some netizens referenced the issue, saying, "All AOA members lack intelligence."

For everyone that's confused about the whole Mina going to school with Eunji thing, it's possible they went to middle school together for a few years before Mina dropped out.

They went to high school together. Read this article.

SleepingDragon Fairytailloverr Thursday, May 26, 2016

In Korea middle school is grade 7-9 and high school is grade 10-12.

Yup and Mina COULDVE dropped out at any point from grade 8-9

Now I know why teachers say to not use Wikipedia.

Wtf?? Mina and Eunji were schoolmates, therefore this article makes no sense.

Fairytailloverr iMinaboys Monday, May 23, 2016

She could've dropped out at any point. I know people from my school that were there from grade 9-11 and then dropped out grade 12

AKP, are you forgetting your own article to contradict yourself?

SleepingDragon Friday, May 13, 2016

Isn't Mina schoolmates with Apink's Eunji?  Dropout my ass!

I think it's the person's memory that determines whether they're able to name all those historical figure . . .

Sorry for the lack of commas and stops. Akp want dumb phrases due to "excesive spamming".

the main point of high school is to find a career in the long run. she's already got that, and a successful one.

Many of life's greatest and most valuable lessons aren't learned in school. Also, I wish subjects such as being able to pay bills, understanding easier laws and being able to cook were mandatorily taught in school.

Naryu cococcchanel Friday, May 13, 2016

I do agree with your comment, except that in my school we are taught how to cook and all those laws necessary for a citizen, also how billing works so we can understand the gist of what we are actually paying for. That is only in our school though.

cococcchanel Naryu Friday, May 13, 2016

I'm envious! What "cooking" we learned in our school's completely useless. I do not find baking as necessary to learn as cooking, though there are similarities 😐

Ovens are for storage. Baking is delicious, but useless, but delicious.
