Girl group 2NE1 member Gong Minzy took a selca of her first day of class after becoming a university student.
Gong Minzy on March 4th posted a picture onto her own Instagram account with the caption “Today, I have a class! Studyyyyyyy~ I’m a university student haha… Teehee“.
On the uploaded picture, Gong Minzy is seen looking at the camera while doing a cute pose with her hand. Her eyeline is slightly underlined by make-up; this fresh side of her is different from the one seen during 2NE1′s activities.
Netizens who saw this update reacted “Fighting on your student life”, “Listen well in your class”, “I want to go to class with you”.
Meanwhile 2NE1 will hold their comeback stage for their second full album on March 9th on Inkigayo.

- (+1569 –54) What, Gong Minzy got in with special treatment? Keke. She stopped studying because of her singer career, she succeeded in the qualification exams, and she’s even going to a local university… Was it Baekseok University?
- (+1499 -49) Gong Minzy is cool. If you’re a celebrity, you can get into university through special treatment but she honestly worked on her qualification exams and went to the Christian Baekseok University. Even though there is a practical music section, by matching her own faith (in God) ordinarily, she’s going to the theological section which is, I think, honest and cool. I also saw the message on Facebook left by the theological professor, the other students too, saying a celebrity was coming but nothing would change in class, and that she was just like the other students, just a theological student, and they should act like they didn’t know who she was, act as if she was just another student and should listen to the classes. The school and students were all hoping this too.
- (+1460 -95) You can’t compare her to Son Naeun seriously… Honestly, even special treatment would be ok with Gong Minzy… You’re so pretty working hard by your own beliefs ^^
- (+1252 -48) Gong Minzy could have gotten into any university by special treatment but… by her own faith and beliefs, she got into Baekseok University. Congratulations.
- (+1075 -24) She is not shamelessly using her celebrity stature and is instead studying theology at Baekseok University following her own beliefs? She is good!
- (+886 -25) Contrary to someone, she has a conscience keke
- (+730 -43) Haha she said teehee. Keke it’ll be hard attending Baeksoek University. It’s around Daejeon isn’t it??
- (+744 -62) There is no other girl group like 2NE1. It’s the first time seeing a group this cool.
- (+631 -30) The singer who seems to be the more human one in 2NE1… Singing is also very good~ And is the best dancer
- (+575 -40) Seoul University, Korea University, Yeonsei University’s sloppy celebrities, are you seeing this?
- (+540 -18) Since their debut, her face looks more sharp now, she became prettier and is already a university student, I’m envious ㅜㅜ Enjoy your student life, don’t force too much on your group activity (T/N: meaning don’t kill herself working too hard) and work hard~
- (+536 -24) Whoah, when you’re Gong Minzy, you can go wherever through special treatment but she went in with her own capabilities and beliefs! She’s cool…
- (+516 -21) Whoah Baekseok University? I’m seeing 2NE1 in a new light… Whoah… I honestly only heard about 2NE1 and SNSD’s difference… From my side, I was supporting SNSD and didn’t like 2NE1… Whoah amazing… She’s a person like no other lately ㅠㅠ I saw earlier that she’s going to the theological section? Not going by special treatment but qualification exams… She’s really special… Celebrities are the image of their companies… What to do I think I’m starting to like her ㅠㅠ Songs are good too ㅠㅠ Personally I like Sandara but Gong Minzy is a full package… Amazing!
- (+443 -17) Gong Minzy is lost in the middle of the members but she’s the best vocal, rapper and dancer. I like Minzy’s music color better than CL’s.
