If any one of them get into school with special admissions, I will kill them.
Special admissions… Special admissions…
Who will get in with special admissions this year ^^
Thumbs up if you saw Dasom as someone in her mid-20′s.
The special admissions they’re talking about is a privilege in Korea where idol stars will gain admission into a university without needing the proper grades/scores simply because they are a celebrity. The idea is that the celebrity will promote the school, and thus, more admissions, and most of your favorite celebrities were admitted to school this way.
It’s a longstanding controversy, especially since the celebrities that actually get admitted this way don’t even actually attend school and still get the credit for work other students actually have to do.
Fair? No. Is it still in practice? Yes. Will the majority of the stars in the list above get in with special admissions? Hell yes.
