1. [+1,074, -40] Let's be real, he's not the only one out there. He just got unlucky and was caught. Celebrities get perks everywhere.

2. [+1,023, -26] The amount of army evasion in the industry is too severe

3. [+952, -75] I knew there were too many stars with master's and doctorate degrees. How can they be deserving of these degrees when they've never even put out a thesis? Why are there so many comments supporting him when he should be getting into school on his own merit? All he's done is shatter the hopes of students actually deserving of these degrees. Please return your degree and take the punishment that's due.

4. [+46, -1] ㅋㅋㅋ When 'Infinity Challenge' was poking fun at Haha's master's degree, I didn't think much and just laughed along but now I realize it was so he could postpone the army and get into public service.

5. [+33, -2] Most celebrities who are postponing service until 30 years old are obviously getting into graduate school for the sole purpose of that so why is the army turning a blind eye to this? Please shut down all the schools that are allowing this.

1. [+1,785, -130] From Jo Kwon's perspective, I can see how this must suck for him... I'm sure the truth will come out but if what he's saying is true, it's going to be hard for him for a while... Not sure about the rest but I'm sure Jo Kwon really worked hard in school. Find strength!!

2. [+1,205, -67] He's right, though. Aren't most of the idols who are in college right now in it for the same reasons? If you're going to target one of them, you should target them all.

3. [+144, -7] What Jo Kwon's saying is that there were never any rules and he was never notified about his thesis. If it's true, then yeah, it sucks for him. It's obvious even with Jung Yonghwa's scandal that there's no rule to follow in this school. Even the professor went to interview Jung Yonghwa personally... If there were rules set in place for these things, none of this would've happened. It's wrong to accuse him of breaking rules that never existed.

4. [+131, -9] The one that's in the wrong here is Kyunghee University. Not that I'm saying Jo Kwon did anything right but we need to get to the root of the issue and it seems like the school and their professors are the bigger issue here. It feels wrong to put all the blame on the celebrities instead.

5. [+93, -9] Yup, he's right, if we're going to dig into this issue, we need to uncover all the celebrities, not just target one...

1. [+13,923, -285] It does seem like there are parts to this scandal that is unfair to Jo Kwon. All these celebrities keep getting pinpointed by the media but one of the attention is on how rotten the school is but more on ruining the image of the celebrities.

2. [+11,218, -185] This is a laughable school ㅋㅋ Well Jo Kwon claims he has recordings and everything so just release them... you can tell how angry he is by his words

3. [+10,037, -375] Sounds like he has every right to be mad by his post

4. [+1,940, -80] He's always been a hard worker, I sense something genuine from his post

5. [+1,781, -56] The target should've been on the school all along instead of the celebrity in question
