K-pop idols are known for their killer dance moves, impressive vocals, and unparalleled stage presence. It's a tough job that requires intensive and constant training that makes it impossible to squeeze in other activities in their schedules. But for many of K-pop stars, formal education is also a priority. Below, we list down a few K-pop idols who attended college as well as the courses they majored in.
