Aivan’s guest appearance on SBS Power FM “Cultwo Show” on Sunday was highlighted with information about the singer’s background.

DJ Kim Tae-kyun expressed surprised when he went over the singer’s academic background. According to his information, the singer graduated from the Media and Communications department at Yonsei University. Not only that, but he is also working on getting his Master’s in Communication from the same university.

While his achievements at one of the best universities in South Korea are already impressive, Aivan has another fun fact tucked under his belt. “I’ve become an official member of Mensa,” the singer revealed. He has taken an exam for the international organization earlier this year, discovering that he was in the top one percentile with an IQ of 156. However, the singer seemed a bit shy, modestly saying “I think I was lucky” in response.

During his appearance, the singer also performed his debut single “Curious,” one of the title songs from his first mini album Curiosity that dropped on the 9th. Unlike choreography-heavy performances on music shows, critics have commented that the singer implores fans to concentrate on the singer’s voice and lyrics.

Meanwhile, Aivan will continue to promote his new album with an upcoming performance on “Music Bank,” Arirang’s “Simply K-Pop,” and SBS’s “The Show.”
