K-pop girlband TWICE members Tzuyu and Chaeyoung celebrate high school graduation

Tzuyu of K-pop girl group TWICE bids farewell to her high school, Hanlim Multi Arts School, in Songpa-gu, Seoul, on Tuesday.

Two members of the K-pop girl group TWICE, Chaeyoung and Tzuyu, said a final goodbye to their high school days after they graduated on Tuesday.

They used the nine-member band’s Instagram website to tell fans about their graduation from Hanlim Multi Arts School in Jangji-dong, in Seoul’s Songpa-gu district.

South Korean Chaeyoung, 19, whose full name is Son Chae-young, and Tzuyu, 19, her Taiwanese-born band mate, whose full name is Chou Tzu-yu, thanked teachers and fellow graduates in Korean and Chinese and posted selfies in school uniforms.

“I graduated with Cai Ying,” read the Chinese words, referring to Chaeyoung.

“All the friends who graduated and teachers have worked hard! Thank you!”

The graduation was like a school version of a press conference as other star graduates and celebrity guests stood behind the photo line-up, causing journalists to reach for their cameras.

Members of nine-piece girl band Fromis 9 were there to see fellow star Song Ha-young’s graduation. Girl band IZ*ONE’s Kim Chae-won, as well as artists from K-pop acts including DreamNote, THE BOYZ, Newkidd, G-reyish, Lipbubble, ASTRO, Golden Child and GWSN, also said farewell to the school.

Hanlim is a private institute of continuing studies established in 1960. It is famous for the many celebrities that have attended the school.
