On Thursday, Nov. 12, four members of BEAST will be taking the national college entrance exam.
The college entrance exam is similar to the SAT's in the United States, but in Korea the entrance exam is a determining factor in college admission that carries much more weight.
Hyunseung, Junhyung, Kikwang, and Dongwoon are the four members who will be taking the exam.
Fans who were hoping to see Hyunseung or Junhyung on this week's Inkigayo Mobile Ranking were disappointed when the schedule came out to show that Yoseub and Doojoon would be filming Mobile Ranking together on Wednesday, Nov. 11. But many BEAST fans speculated that CUBE assigned Yoseub and Doojoon to Mobile Ranking so that the other four members could spend the day before the exam studying.
Even with this day "off" before the test, Hyunseung, Junhyung, Kikwang, and Dongwoon will go right back to their schedule after they take the exam with BEAST's performance at M.net's "Oh~ Good!" concert which is on the same day as the entrance exam.
Needless to say, the boys must be extremely nervous, but hopefully they know that their fans are behind them cheering them on!
