On May 1, the PLEDIS Entertainment idol answered some of their questions on Weverse. He talked about simple things like not yet seeing JOKER 2 in person.


He also had more casual responses like greeting fans like as if they were friends texting each other.


One particular question and answer portion is going viral: when one CARAT asked him to help them complete their thesis.

Vernon, help me on my thesis paper.


A thesis is a long research paper that is usually used in the context of obtaining a Master’s degree. Vernon’s reply was hilariously straightforward!

I’m a middle school dropout.,

— Vernon


He has always been honest about stopping his studies as a young kid, even addressing it in the lyrics of their song “Trauma.”

Trauma got me bad, bad
I dropped out of school in 8th grade
Basically had no friends


Instead of going through the usual formal education path, he studied at home with his parents. This gave him time to pursue his dream of being a K-Pop idol on the side.

I have been taking homeschooling from my parent after I dropped out school in my 8th grade.

Fans always love how he owns up to his lack of a degree without remorse.

While he could not help the fan with their thesis, he was able to give another one advice on exams.

Fan: Vernon, I have an exam tomorrow. Should I pass it or pass away?

Vernon: Preferably the former.


Though Vernon does not have an advanced degree, he is successful as an artist nonetheless!
