Oh My Girl’s agency WM Entertainment has responded to the controversy regarding misinformation about YooA’s educational background.
Netizens are claiming that while YooA in a past interview claimed that she graduated from Sejong University with a dance degree, she actually graduated from the global knowledge continuing education program at Sejong University.
On August 28, WM Entertainment posted an official statement to Oh My Girl’s official fan cafe clarifying YooA’s schooling, saying, “Oh My Girl member YooA’s educational background was inaccurately transcribed in the media interview, and we want to clarify that [she graduated from] the ‘applied dance department from the Sejong University global knowledge continuing education program.'”
The agency also apologizes for not clarifying the misinformation sooner. “We were not able to review the published article [containing the interview] and the automatically updated information on the portal site, and we apologize for this belated correction,” the agency says.
Meanwhile, Oh My Girl made a comeback with their “Summer Special Album” in late July.
