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.

Girl's Day's Sojin

It's been reported that this K-pop idol took up Mechanical Engineering at Yeungnam University. On the South Korean show Problematic Men, Sojin shared more about her college experience, saying, "Among 1,000 Mechanical Engineering majors, there were only eight women. We were treated with a lot of admiration.”
