4minute’s HyunA previously made headlines when she tweeted about her upcoming high school graduation, which she unfortunately couldn’t attend due to an overlap with her professional schedule.

Immediately, netizens gushed over her milky white skin and charming pose: “It looks so good. I like seeing her looking young and conservative in her school attire”, “If my graduation picture looked this good, I would dance”, “This looks ten thousand times prettier than mine” and “Gosh, she looks so pure.”

HyunA’s graduation took place on February 9th, which the idol unfortunately missed due to 4minute’s promotions in Thailand. The idol will soon enter Konkuk University as part of the 2011 class.
