Park Shin Hye Takes a Leave of Absence from School
Park Shin Hye is known as a really hard worker. Even in her busy schedule, in which she barely gets three or four hours of sleep, she′s still managed to keep up with her schoolwork.
While most celebrities miss most of their classes due to their schedules, Park Shin Hye has shown her enthusiasm toward her studies by attending most of her classes. Thanks to this, she even earned herself a grade point average of over 3.0.
This semester, however, she had to turn in a leave of absence.
A rep from the actress′ agency S.A.L.T said, "Park Shin Hye had to turn in her leave of absence for this semester. She′s attended her classes, but she couldn′t help it this time. She′s also very sorry."
Many reasons led her to make this decision. First of all, she is scheduled to tour other countries in an overseas fanmeeting tour. In March she′s held fanmeetings in Japan and the Philippines, while in April she was busy filming for Rock, Paper, Scissors of Love and in May she is due to appear in China for another fanmeeting.
Another reason is that though she can still make it to some classes and meet the minimum requirements for a grade, she didn′t want to do it that way. She wanted to study properly when she had time for it.
Park Shin Hye entered Chung-Ang University in 2008, and is currently in her fourth year. Though she did take a leave of absence once before, she managed to attend her classes and do all of her schoolwork just like any other student during the rest of her time in school.
In an interview with enews held in February, she had said with a laugh, "Since I work so hard not to miss any classes, my agency hates it."
She had also said, "I think I′ll have to graduate soon for my juniors. I need to write my thesis and I have an Asia tour coming up, but I′m very attached to my studies. I want to graduate properly."
Following her leave of absence, Park Shin Hye is currently spending her time practicing her skills on the piano for her upcoming China fanmeeting in May.
