Actress Lee In-hye is in the spotlight for her academic achievement, having published a book about study tips she acquired as a top student in school while also pursuing her acting career. It has become a bestseller just over one week after its launch on May 20.
Lee began her acting career as a child but never neglected her studies, getting into Korea University, one of the country's three most prestigious schools, through the normal admissions track. She is currently a lecturer in college and is studying for a master's degree at her alma mater.
Based on her experience, she suggests the best way to approach studying, recalling her childhood when she had to juggle her acting career and school work. She describes in detail how she made maximum use of little bits of free time and offers tips for memorizing and tackling subjects. "Studying is not a choice, it is a must. No matter what you want to do in your life, studying hard can always help you to do better. It enhances your value," she says.
Her management agency said Lee is the first in show business to write about how to study. Her tips "seem to attract huge attention from young people and parents alike, as Lee has always been top of her class despite her acting career."
