Majority majored in Liberal Arts; us, non-celebrity, should major in STEM field because that's where most earners career is. whenever we heard about graduated are in debt up to $100,000 are mostly those worthless Liberal Arts degrees; Law and Medicine graduates are okay because it probably takes them less than 3 yrs to pay it off

My bae, Ok Taecyeon studies at Korea University, which is has one of the biggest and hardest university admission.

There's a special admittance for students who spent more than 6 years abroad. It's a lot easier to get in. Also it was revealed he never attended class so a normal student would have gotten a F but since he's a celebrity...

Could be an online degree too. Some universities let you do a whole degree with online courses.

I know how you feel, I did two degrees, worked and managed a family!! Keeps life interesting and never boring!!

So if you combine the percentages it's 60% of idols enroll in university. Not bad, I honestly thought it was gonna be less than 50%. Good for them for wanting to further their education
