Actor Yoo Seung-ho politely refused an offer from several prominent universities and decided to give up on it.
The rumors around SNS and internet sites about his special admission to the department of Political Science and Diplomacy in a prominent university, turned out to be not true.
Yoo Seung-ho's management told Star Today on the 24th, "He's had offers from several universities in the country for special admissions but he refused them. The rumors are also untrue".
"Yoo Seung-ho is currently unavailable due to his busy schedule. Even if he did go to university, he wouldn't be able to concentrate on his studies and could be a disturbance to other students so he decided to give up on university education".
"Going to university is something he can think about once again when he is older and wiser with more time. If this leads to one more student going to university, that would be a good thing. This decision was made with the agreement of his parents after serious consideration".
Since Yoo Seung-ho has given up on university education, he will not sit for the Scholastic Ability test either. "This is something he chose to do when he was in grade 10" said his management. In addition, "As much as he was sincere about his decision, he's happy with it. Good luck to all the other test-takers out there!"
Many stars and celebrities have been getting unwelcome attention for their special admissions to universities. Therefore, a case like Yoo Seung-ho's is quite out of the ordinary. The entertainment biz is saying he did something that was likely for him to do.
Yoo Seung-ho has been known as a very talented person in the entertainment biz. His personality and acting skills have achieved good feedbacks. He was recognized recently for his matured acting in the movie "Blind" and drama "Warrior Baek Dong-soo". He is also very well known for his character and consideration for others despite his age.
The team that worked with him recently said, "Yoo Seung-ho works hard even for a small role. Despite the fact that he had an injury to the face recently, he took part in his role saying he couldn't let other people suffer".
