On January 16, SBS News reported that in October of 2016, idol star A was accepted into Kyung Hee University's graduate school despite not participating in the official interview process. Police are now investigating the acceptance due to the suspicion of special treatment.
According to reports, A did not only fail to attend the official interview, but he also did not attend the supplemental interview. It's said A's aunt, who is a professor at the institution, and the graduate school's administrative office are being investigated.
A's agency has stated he applied to Kyung Hee University's graduate school due to his aunt's advice, and the label assumed A was officially interviewed when A's aunt came to the agency. Reportedly, A temporarily withdrew from the university after his acceptance and is still on a hiatus from schooling.
