On November 16, the annual South Korean college entrance exam — the 2024 College Scholastic Ability Test (CSAT) — will be held for high school seniors. The exam is a standardized test used for admissions by colleges and universities in the country, and is often considered one of the most “grueling” experiences of a student’s life.
Each year, K-Pop idols who are seniors in high school usually announce whether they will be participating in the CSAT, or if they will be sitting out in order to keep up with their group’s schedule.
Only five idols have confirmed that they will be participating in the exam this year: Kep1er‘s Yeseo, tripleS‘s Jiwoo and Yubin, Rocket Punch‘s Dahyun, and LIMELIGHT‘s Gaeun.
On the other hand, many other idols have shared that they plan to focus on group activities rather than participate in the 2024 CSAT. They include TREASURE‘s Junghwan; NMIXX‘s Jiwoo; P1Harmony‘s Jongseob; Billlie‘s Siyoon; xikers‘ Junghoon, Seeun, Hunter, Yujun, and Yechan; TNX‘s Sungjun; KISS OF LIFE‘s Haneul; mimiirose‘s Yunju; and TRI.BE‘s Jia and Soeun.
Good luck to all of the students that will be taking the 2024 CSAT on November 16!
