Top actor Jo In-seong has been expelled from Dongguk University as he failed to meet the school's attendance requirements.
The university said that the 26-year-old actor was asked not to return to the Department of Theater, which has strict regulations controlling student behavior, as he skipped many classes last semester.
Jo originally went to Chunnam Techno College in South Jolla Province and later entered Dongguk University in 2003 to further his study of performing arts.
However, after moving to the university, Jo didn't have much time to attend classes from 2005 as he started acting in the film, "A Dirty Carnival", which was released last year.
Sidus HQ, Jo's management agency, said that he tried to balance both his acting career and studies, but failed to do so because of his tight schedule.
