Suspicions have been raised over whether or not former members of the group B2ST received preferential treatment to help them graduate from university.

Controversy had already arose in the past regarding how all four B2ST members who attended Dongshin University - Doojoon, Junhyung, Kikwang, and Hyunseung - received full four-year scholarships. However, on August 12th, SBS' news program ran a story revealing they may have also received a type of class attendance leniency that is only usually reserved for students working in civil service.

According to Dongshin University, Junhyung and Hyunseung were second-year Practical Music majors, and Doojoon and Kikwang were second-year Broadcasting Entertainment majors in 2011. In the scholarship records made public from that year, their names all have an 'X' next to them, which is usually reserved for students who have not been attending classes.

Their former agency has responded to SBS' claims by saying all of the managers working with B2ST at that time have since left the company, making it difficult to report on whether each individual member regularly attended class or not.
