Roy Kim will be officially starting college in August.
He will be re-matriculated as a first-year in Georgetown McDonough School of Business this fall semester. The university had already accepted him this past year, but his participation in “Superstark K4” had hindered enrollment. The releasing of his debut album eventually took priority over his education. However, his studies are scheduled to resume as he wraps up his promotional activities on his latest song,“Love Love Love.”
Roy Kim’s staff revealed that his return back to the United States had little to do with the recent controversy over a possible plagiarism for “Bom Bom Bom.”
“It is planned that he will be going back to the U.S. in August, but it hasn’t been firmly decided. His departure from Korea is unrelated to the controversy. Even if he leaves briefly for his studies, his musical activities will continue. We’re still deeply considering any new release of his songs.”
His career is all the more uncertain, as the contract with his current agency will soon end. It is up in the air whether he will stay with CJ E&M or another company will represent him in the future.
