Members of rookie Korean girl group ITZY Lee Chaeryeong and Shin Ryujin graduated from the Hanlim Multi Art School on February 7.
“It’s a little bittersweet to be graduating as it feels like the end of my teens. But even after graduated, I will work hard to be someone who is a good influence on others,” Chaeryeong told Soompi. Ryujin shared the same sentiment. She said, “I’ve spent the last part of my teens with ITZY, and even after graduating and becoming an adult, I hope to continue to show growth as ITZY."
Wearing their uniforms, 19-year-old "it girls" Charyeong and Ryujin received their high school diplomas from the departments of Musical Theatre and Practical Dance, respectively.
Hanlim Multi Art School is a high school renowned for honing some of the biggest South Korean stars. For Batch 2020, the institution also awarded diplomas to other Korean celebrities such as singer Jeon Somi, actress and host Lee Soo-min, GWSN's Minju, Saturday's Juyeon, ARIAZ's Jooeun, Buster's Hyungseo, Purple Beck's Seyeon, S.I.S' Sebin, Hoppipolla's Kim Young So, and reality TV stars Kim Cho Yeon, Jo Young In, Lee Seung Yeon, Lee Eui Woong, Bae Si Jun, Choi Jae Ho, Jang Kyung Ho, and Park Jin Yeol.
ITZY's youngest member Yuna is currently attending Hanlim under the Practical Dance department.
ITZY, which debuted only in February last year, visited the Philippines on December 8, for their premiere showcase tour.
