Lee Jong Suk will receive a bachelor's degree from Konkok University in theatrical studies, as a student of the Professional Motion Pictures Art program.

His diploma will be released on February 22, but he will not participate in the commencement ceremony.  

On February 19, the Korean publication News1 published details regarding the upcoming ceremony.

The 26-year-old actor will be issued a diploma in absentia due to scheduling conflicts involving his current filming schedule in China.

"Lee Jong Suk has served [Konkuk University] with a variety of his talents, to promote donations for the school [and has] encouraged younger students each year, since his admission." said a spokesperson for Konkuk University. 

Lee was admitted to Konkok University in 2011 and is expected to receive an achievement award for his service as an honorary ambassador of the college.

His collegiate pursuits coincided with his rise as a top Hallyu star. In September 2011, Lee received acclaim for his portrayal of An Jong Seok, in the family drama, "High Kick: Revenge of the Short-Legged." 

He followed with the compelling role of "Go Nam Soon" in KBS' "School 2013," opposite his real-life friend, Kim Woo Bin.

Lee catapulted to widespread fame as the unlikely leading man of the supernatural series, "I Can Hear Your Voice," followed by "Doctor Stranger. 

In 2014, he solidified his position as a rising star after wooing Park Shin Hye in "Pinocchio." 

Lee is currently active in China, where he is filming the Korean-Chinese co-production, "Jade Lover." "Jade Lover" marks his first dramatic television role since "Pinocchio."

His casting as the leading man of the series exemplifies his significance as a popular artist within Asia and the mainland Chinese region.
