CNBLUE Jung Yong-Hwa Cleared of Getting Preferential Treament for Grad School Admission

Jung Yong-Hwa has been cleared of charges regarding his admission to Kyunghee University’s doctoral program.

On October 9, FNC Entertainment announced that CNBLUE’s Jung Yong-Hwa is officially cleared of all charges in getting preferential treatment during the admission process to Kyunghee University.

Earlier this year, Kyunghee University became the talk of the town when several reports accused the organization of giving preferential treatment to a few celebrities in attendance. The list of celebrities included CNBLUE’s Jung Yong-Hwa, who was accused of getting the favor while applying to the university’s graduate programs.

At the time, both the singer and his agency apologized to the public for causing an uproar. More specifically, FNC Entertainment stated that the agency had actually filled out the application to the school for Jung, as the company usually handles his schedules both in and outside of their career.

At the end, the agency stated that both the company and the singer thought the admission was submitted through a formal process and Jung had only done everything the agency had told him, too.

On October 9, Jung Yong-Hwa finally became cleared of all accusations and charges regarding his admission to Kyunghee University.

The following is the official statement from FNC Entertainment:

Hello, this is FNC Entertainment.

We hereby deliver an update about our artist Jung Yong-Hwa’s admission to his graduate school admission process.

Since the beginning of the year, Jung Yong-Hwa has diligently participated in all prosecutorial investigations. As a result, the prosecutors made a final decision that Jung Yong-Hwa was not guilty of obstruction of business regarding his admission to the school. In July, the prosecutors decided not to indict him.

Finally, Jung Yong-Hwa was able to clear himself of all misunderstanding and rumors regarding his admission to the grad school through the proper judgement of law. Moreover, the law acknowledges that the singer did not have any intention of receiving preferential treatment.

Meanwhile, Jung Yong-Hwa enlisted in the military last March and has completed the basic training with outstanding results. Currently, he is serving his country in the 702nd Special Assault Regiment.

The Ministry of Education has confirmed that Kyung-hee University provided preferential treatment for singer Jung Yong-hwa, Jo Kwon, and Cho Kyu-man.

In response, the university said that it was entirely prepared to accept the results of the ministry’s ruling. On March 5 school officials said, “Today the ministry announced the results of its on-site investigation of the graduate schools’ operations. As a result of the investigation, the ministry demanded we revoke the admission of Jung Yong-hwa and Cho Kyu-man. More, we will void the degree earned by Jo Kown.”

However, the school is awaiting the official written message from the ministry to before they act on the demands. The official said, “When the official letter arrives, we will proceed according to procedures. We will accommodate the request of the ministry under school regulations.”

The  Korean Ministry of Education launched an investigation in response to suspicion of favorable admission and academic treatment of celebrities at Kyung-hee University. Further, the on-site probe lasted for five days from February 9 to the 13.

Additionally, the Ministry viewed the preferential treatment as a violation of the Higher Education Act. As such, they have made the stipulation that the school cancels Jong Yong-hwa and Cho Kyu-man’s admission to the school.

On March 4, a day before he enlists, CNBLUE member Jung Yong-hwa took to social media with a special picture and message for his fans.

Dressed comfortably, Jung looks ready for his enlistment with the mandatory military required buzzcut and a relaxed pose. Accompanying the casual photo, Jung told fans “Everyone, I will be joining the army tomorrow. Always take care of your health, always support your dreams and accomplish your goals.” He continued, assuring fans that he “will go and return safely, so please don’t worry” and told then that “during that time, always only be happy!” He concluded his message with “For a short time, goodbye.”

Jung Yong-hwa will enter the 15th Infantry Division’s training came in Hwacheon County, Gangwon Province on Monday, March 5th. Leading up to his enlistment, Jung has been preparing for the day by slowly wrapping up loose ends. This past Friday and Saturday, the singer help a two-day fan meet where he greeted and performed for fans.

However, while he has been able to say goodbye to fans, he will not be able to do the same to his recent scandal. In February the singer was accused of entering the graduate school of modern music at Kyung-hee University with a fraudulent application.

Additionally, after a police investigation, it was revealed that Kyung-hee University did not have Jung undergo the standard interview process before accepting him. As a result, prosecutes may indict Jung for obstructing business as usual. This is a bit surprising given that it appears to be the university’s fault.

Meanwhile, Jung’s expected discharge date is December 2019.

Probe Into CNBLUE Yong-hwa’s Admission to Kyung-Hee University Concludes With Startling Results

The results of the investigation on Jung Yong-hwa has unveiled some startling details.

Both CNBlue member Jong Yong-hwa and his agency FNC Entertainment, have rejected certain details revealed from the Police’s investigation. However, they have stopped short of specifying exactly which parts of the probe their rejection includes. A once-over of some of the details explains why: the investigation is damning.

There are so many details that work unfavorably for the singer and his agency that it would be hard to pinpoint to just one and say it is wrong. Denying on aspect does nothing to alleviate the gravity of the situation. Nor does it take away from the other results of the investigation.

One of the more significant details released by police says the singer’s irregular college entrance exam along with his possible acceptance and attendance was apart of a ploy to delay his mandatory military service. The suspicion stems from the timing of FNC’s announcement of Jung’s military postponement and his application, which coincide. Additionally, police confirmed that the claim Jong met professor for individual interviews was different from the truth.

According to police, Jung and singer-songwriter Cho Kyu-man, were admitted to graduate programs at Kyung-hee University without having standard interviews. Moreover, former Dean chairman of the interview screening committee, Professor Lee, apparently ignored evaluation principle and gave both singers passing scores without either of them being interviewed.

Indictment and Prosecution

As a result of the investigation, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said on Mar. 2 that they have indicted Jung for potential illegal admission into a graduate program, without due process. Further, Jung, along with five others involved in the situation, have been referred to the Central District Prosecutors’ Office, whom will determine their charges.

Police have recommended they be charged with obstruction and disruption of regular business without detention. Among those indited with Jung and Cho are Kyung-hee University staff, and a professor.

Notwithstanding the results of the police investigation, it is a bit strange that Kyung-hee university, except a few staff and a professor, has come out of the situation almost unscathed. At the very least, a fine would be expected. However, a lowered public opinion may have come in place of a fine.

Meanwhile, Jung Yong-hwa is currently holding his last fan-meets before his enlistment on March 5th.
