    This isn’t info, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me where they heard that he went to an all boys for middle school. I’ve been trying to find it since it is mentioned in the comments for the scandal articles, but I can’t.

  • passerbie

    Hello, I just read that too and tried looking it up with my not-yet-very-good Korean (with google translate and naver dictionary as help). I googled “황현진 중학교”.

    So I found his page on namu.wiki and it lists the schools (학교) he went to. The middle school (성내중학교) has a link and from what I could gather, was co-ed since at least 2014 (because that’s when it starts listing the amount of male and female students) – also side note, in 2012 that school won a “school violence eradication award” (if I can trust google on that translation). So there’s that.

    His first high school is called 동북고등학교 and also has a page on namu.wiki. Literally the first line in the “summary” (개요) section is “서울특별시 강동구 둔촌동에 위치한 사립 남자 일반계 고등학교.”, which google translates as “Private male general high school in Dunkon-dong, Gangdong-gu, Seoul.”
    If that’s not enough proof (lol) there is a “bathrooms” sections under “facility” where it says there are in fact, female bathrooms, because of the female teachers. Which implies there are no female students. That’s all I got 🙂

  • Hyunjin is friends with Daehwi (ex Wanna One). They’ve mentioned a lot of times that they’re best friends, they probably trained together when Daehwi was a JYP trainee before and they used to attend SOPA.
