It has just been revealed that U-KISS‘s AJ had been accepted into the prestigious Columbia University in New York.
U-KISS’s agency, NH Media, shared with enews that, “AJ is currently taking time off from school”. Having been a member of PARAN, a group that disbanded a while back, AJ had prepared for college entrance by taking the SATs and achieved a perfect score on the Subject Tests and a high score on the Reasoning Test. With the help of these scores, AJ was able to gain admission into Columbia University, which is famous for having many U.S. Presidents among its alumni. ‘I Am A Singer’ starPark Jung Hyun has also graduated from Columbia in the past.
Even though he secured admission to the school, AJ was not able to enjoy college life as he was suddenly picked as new member of U-KISS.
NH Media stated, “AJ is passionate about his studies. He has shown the determination to attend college if the circumstances allow for it”.
However, with U-KISS currently in the midst of promotions for ‘Neverland’, it seems AJ will have to hold off on school for a while longer.
