IVE Jang Wonyoung’s High School Yearbook Photos Are So Beautiful, They’re Already Legendary
IVE‘s Jang Wonyoung is graduating from high school today, and that means her yearbook pictures have finally been released. As expected, they are a sight to behold!
The “ELEVEN” singer attended School of Performing Arts Seoul (commonly known as SOPA), one of the most prestigious arts high schools in Korea. She looked radiant in their bright yellow uniform with navy accents.
However, the K-Pop idol decided to opt out of attending the graduation ceremony today. According to reports, she was worried about a crowd forming to see her, thus disrupting the event. She instead visited the school the day before.

Fans who heard the news were touched by her consideration for fellow graduating classmates. They believe she didn’t want to overwhelm the coordinators and take the spotlight away from other students. “She’s a combination of too kind and too famous,” they said.
I think it sounds just like Wonyoung though – she’s always so considerate of others she probably didn’t want to overwhelm the event coordinators and distract from the other students. She’s a combination of too kind and too famous 😭 https://t.co/1jSOwjeVY4

rmb when Wonyoung attended the online class but many non-her classmates joined so her classmates couldn't join the online class😑
I can understand why she was afraid that a large number of people would gather at the graduation ceremony.#CongratulationsWONYOUNG

Furthermore, when reporters at the school released pictures of the crowded graduation ceremony earlier, fans agreed that Wonyoung’s decision was “wise and sweet of her,” and they praised how “considerate and mature” she is.
This is the situation at SOPA, so it's so wise and sweet of her to not come cause she will draw too much crowd and it'll be uncontrollable. Wonyoung is such a considerate and mature girl, remember that fancon is in 3 days, so her health and safety matters. https://t.co/oe7iQCQAu9
