Minho, who will be enrolling in Konkuk University as a film major next month, was handed not only his diploma but a special award for his contribution in making the school better known to the public.

Key, who returned to his hometown of Daegu for the graduation ceremony, also received recognition for his contribution as well as a high school diploma.

“I am glad and happy because fans are congratulating me on my graduation,” the 18-year-old singer was quoted as saying. “Now that I am an adult, I will be more responsible and work hard for the fans.”

U-Kiss member Dongho showed up at his alma mater Yonggang Middle School in Seoul, accompanied by his bandmates Kevin, Ki-bum, Alexander and Ki-sub. Dongho will be attending Hanlim Multi Art School in March.

Lee Jung-shin, bassist of indie rock band CNBLUE, also became a graduate, receiving a diploma at Jung Bal High School located in Ilsan, Korea.
