She’s one of Korea’s best known child stars, but as is the case with most young talent these days, Kim Yoo Jung seems to be growing up a little too fast.
The 15-year-old actress shocked parents at a recent school festival when she provocatively danced on stage in front of her peers, teachers and other parents.
Dressed in a pair of Louboutin heels and short hot pants, the May Queen star put on an energetic dance routine to EXID’s “Up and Down” but raised eyebrows when she started to thrust her hips and drop down to the floor with her back to the audience.
She was dancing alongside classmates of the same age, performing the original routine to the August 2014 number 1 single which deemed too sexy for South Korean network television and forced to be toned down after its first week of release. The group also danced to HyunA‘s “Red”.
Videos of the inappropriate performance were uploaded to social media sites in Korea earlier this week but most have been pulled down at the request of her agency, who are trying to maintain her innocent image. (No comment from SidusHQ at time of publishing).
Although Kim will turn 16 in September, fans and commentators say that the screen star is too young to be performing in such an adult-like manner.

One concerned mother voiced their opinion on YouTube, writing, “This is disappointing… Why didn’t the teachers stop it. It’s sad that young girls thing that this is the only way you can be sexy.”
