[2009.01.20] Kara's Han Seungyeon: The Truth behind her "Perfect Student" adventures in America

34 posts in this topic

2s0y5wo.jpg

Kara's Han Seungyeon's experiences in America have been getting a lot of attention lately.

Seungyeon told MoneyToday, "I went to study abroad in America in middle school and attended New Jersey's Tenafly High School for a year and a half. I didn't graduate from Tenafly--I wanted to become a singer so I came back to Korea before graduating. What people think about me having great English is not true," she added with a laugh.

Tenafly High School is not just a famous school in New Jersey, but all of America.

DSP said, "After returning from attending high school in America, she graduated high school in Korea and passed her exams. Last year she entered Kyunghee University, studying acting."

Han Seungyeon, along with Kara members Park Gyuri, Koo Hara, Jung Nicole and Kang Jiyoung are garnering a lot of popularity through their 2nd mini album's title song "Pretty Girl." Following the new year's, they will begin promoting their song "Honey."

*Note: Original phrase used to describe her was "Um Chin Ddal", short for "Mom's Friend's Daughter," which is a popular phrase used to refer to that perfect student that your parents always compare you to since they get such good grades. Thus it's been translated to "Perfect Student" :D

I remember watching SGB and wondering why Seungyeon's English was so good. I think she's just being modest, her English is pretty good for only being there for a short while. :P If I was placed in Korea for two years, I would barely learn anything :lol:

I want to go to her old high school and look in the yearbook for her picture. :lol:

YEAH so agree with u... SY should try Acting either on darama or movie.. but it would be great if she do movie instead...

And i want her to act a different character from her cuteness image... A nerdy would be good... LOL..

Following the new year's, they will begin promoting their song "Honey."

ZOMG, YES! FINALLY~

I've been waiting for them to promote their other songs which are all equally AWESOME (: Can't wait. Anyway, no wonder SY's so good at MC-ing! I hope they showcase her acting skills, that'd be so great. I'm spazzing over how they'll promote "Honey" zomgzomgzomgsqueee!
