IU, Yoo Seung Ho, SHINee's Taemin, and Kang Seung Yoon have all confirmed that they won't be attending college this year. IU revealed earlier on that she didn't plan on going to college for a while, so it's no surprise that she won't be taking the college entrance exam this year. Instead, she's currently focusing on her comeback preparations. Actor Yoo Seung Ho has also revealed that he won't be taking the entrance exam in order to give his undivided attention to acting. His agency stated earlier that if Yoo Seung Ho finds an area that he wants to study, he will start the process of applying to colleges then. SM Entertainment has announced that SHINee's Taemin will not be taking the entrance exam as well. Due to his busy overseas schedule, Taemin was unable to prepare fully and therefore would not be submitting his application for the exam. Finally, 'Superstar K2's Kang Seung Yoon, who is currently under YG Entertainment, has declined from making an appearance at the entrance exams. YG Entertainment stated, "Kang Seung Yoon will not be taking the college entrance exam. Instead, he will be focusing on preparing for his upcoming promotions as a trainee, and give his all for 'High Kick 3'... His thought is that he desires to do his best for the tasks given to him." This trend is quite different from what we've seen in the past. Before, it had been common for stars to accept special admissions into college, only to end up graduating with poor grades due to their busy schedules. However, the current trend seems to be the opposite. Stars are refusing special admissions, and no longer seem to value meaningless diplomas. They seem to prefer concentrating in their field of expertise, until they feel that they are ready to take on school. Source + Photo: Star News via Naver
