Several people on SNS have confirmed that they had classes with Yoon Eun Hye today.
While no official announcements have been made, here are the information on her graduate program.
Yoon Eun Hye has joined the MFA program in Film at the prestigious Chung-Ang (Central) University Graduate School of Advanced Imaging Science, Multimedia & Film (GSAIM). Her concentration is Directing.
So her degree is Masters of Fine Arts, major is in “Film”, and her concentration is “directing”.
Yoon Eun Hye had previously received her Bachelors degree in Business Administration.
Here is the link to the school: http://www.gsaim.cau.ac.kr/. You can click “English” on top right for an English page.
Chung-Ang University is located in Seoul, and the graduate program in film is one of the top programs in the country.
In case you may wonder, this does not mean that Yoon Eun Hye won’t be doing a project any time soon. There are many actors who are studying towards their degree at the Chung-Ang University and still do projects.
Some of such actresses who study at the Chung-Ang University are Shin Se Kyung, Park Shin Hye, Go Ah Ra and etc..
It is notable, however, that while these actresses are undergraduates, Yoon Eun Hye will be studying for her Masters degree.
The point is that Yoon Eun Hye will be able to do projects as well. I’m not quite sure how this is done, but being in a graduate program should give her more flexibility with her schedule than the undergraduates.
Studying film can help an actor improve their acting skills. For example, many of the top Film school in the United States require its film majors to take both acting and directing classes as general requirements, such as film theory, acting and writing classes, regardless of their concentration.
This helps actors and directors understand each other and work together to produce better films.
And of course, some of the best film directors were former actors.
In any case, congratulations to Yoon Eun Hye, and we wish her best of luck!!
