Park Shin Hye recently returned to college to complete her educational pursuits. On September 12, the Korean outlet Sports Donga reported that the 25-year-old actress is in the process of completing her senior year at Chung-Ang University.
A spokesperson for S.A.L.T Entertainment provided a statement regarding her decision to go back to school. "Park Shin Hye has returned to school," said a representative for S.A.L.T Entertainment. "For now, she will be focusing on her studies."
The actress initially enrolled in Chung-Ang University in 2008 to study Theater and Film. Her collegiate career stalled after her fame increased exponentially in 2009.
While she gained notoriety with her role in the 2003 drama, "Stairway to Heaven," her popularity dramatically increased with her portrayal of Go Mi Nam in "You're Beautiful."
In 2015, Park received positive attention for her portrayal of Choi In Ha in the SBS drama, "Pinocchio." She followed with a role in the star-powered arthouse flick,"The Beauty Inside," which premiered in North America on September 11.
Her reinstatement in the university comes on the heels of a recent casting announcement involving the high-profile film, "Hyung."
Park will continue to pursue her studies in Theater and Film. She is scheduled to graduate in February 2016.
Other notable alumni of the Film Industry department at Chung-Ang University include Kim Soo Hyun, Hyun Bin, Jang Na Ra and Yoon Eun Hye.
