I recently wrote an article about some former child actresses and their education backgrounds, how they were able to pursue their education and career at the same time, and what are they up to now. I thought it would be nice to do an article about some former child actors too. So here we go!

His grades were very good, and that he received acceptance from a top university, but declined it, and put his college admission on hold, to focus a bit more on acting. The decision to forego college was made after he had a serious discussion with his parents. Another reason for not going to college was because he didn’t like studying. He revealed that someday if he felt like going to college, he will do just that. Currently, he has received an offer to start in a upcoming drama called “Superstar Miss Lee”. It has been revealed that this is just one of the many projects he is considering.
