2NE1's maknae member, Minzy (Gong Minji) has revealed recently that she has now dropped out of high school and will be focusing all of her energies on her 2NE1 activities.
As the maknae member of 2NE1 and just only 15 years old, the natural route for Minzy would be to continue with a high school education after graduating from middle school. But Minzy has decided to drop out of high school and concentrate fully on 2NE1 activities. This was a decision taken by Minzy after thinking it over many times. Although she has given up on high school, she will still be studying offline and will be registering for the qualification examinations in August for her high school diploma.
This is probably a trend with YG Entertainment artistes as Big Bang members, Daesung and Seung Ri also went along the same route, dropping out of high school and then clearing their examinations successfully last year and this year respectively.
