Singer and actor, Kim Joon, has been accepted to the ‘global culture content’ graduate program at the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies.
On December 21st, the university revealed, “Kim Joon has applied to our graduate school for the 2011 spring semester as a global culture contents major.“ Starting March 2011, Kim Joon will be studying to earn his master’s degree.
Kim Joon previously made headlines for getting into the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies as a life chemistry major, without being given any preferential treatment for his celebrity status. However, because he was unable to attend classes due to his busy schedule for “Boys Over Flowers“, the singer re-applied to the school’s cyber program in 2009 as a Japanese major, and has been consistently studying since then.
A representative of his agency commented, “Kim Joon has taken an interest in spreading Korean culture after he was able to meet with various international fans. He wants to study the production of Hallyu culture content and its spread on a deeper level.”
His group, T-Max, is currently preparing for their comeback album, set for the first half of 2011.
