There are no Ivy League schools in Korea, but the list of the top 10 universities is so important that it receives a lot of attention every year. In Korea, where the enthusiasm for education is high around the world, the whole country is paying keen attention to the college entrance exam called the College Scholastic Ability Test every November. Most parents in Korea think that their children go to a good university as their top priority, and that they will succeed if they go to a good university. I also graduated from one of the top 10 universities, but I think the formula for success in getting into a good university is wrong. However, there is still a lot of effort in Korea to enter the top 10 universities, and there are still many people who have graduated from the top 10 universities who have succeeded or have power in society. Let’s take a look at the top 10 universities in Korea and find out about Korean celebrities who graduated from top 10 universities. This teen university is not set by any statistics, it is a recognition-oriented ranking when I entered the university, and you can think that it is almost the same now.
Seoul National University (서울대학교)
Seoul National University is by far the best university in our country where the best students enter. It is a national university, located near Gwanaksan Mountain in Seoul, and boasts a huge school. There is a city bus running in the university, and there is a subway station called Seoul National University entrance, so it is accessible. Many of the leading political and economic leaders of Korea graduated from Seoul National University, and the pride of SNU students is also the highest. Since it is the school that requires the best study in Korea, of course, if you graduate, your ability to learn will be verified, and it is natural to select graduates of Seoul National University as the preferred talent of many companies. In addition, graduates of Seoul National University stand out in various tests, and there are many graduates of Seoul National University in various professions such as legal professionals and medical professionals. There are many Korean celebrities who graduated from Seoul National University, but the most famous people in the world are Geum Nan-sae, the world-renowned conductor, and Bang Si-hyuk, the producer of BTS. Of course, many people are from Seoul National University in all areas of Korea’s politics, economy, and society, but the above two people will be known to many people who read this article.
Korea University (고려대학교)
Korea University is written as Korea University in English. It is the second most famous school in Korea after Seoul National University. It is a school that produces as many people as Seoul National University. The school custom seems a bit authoritative because many alumni of Korea University consider the relationship between seniors and juniors very important in connection with Korea’s age culture because they graduated from Korea University. Graduates of Korea University have a very strong culture of caring for their alumni, and they are criticized by many for excluding those from other schools. In particular, Korea University has produced many figures in the business world, especially when business owners graduate from Korea University. The celebrity of Korea University includes the former president of the Republic of Korea Lee Myung-bak, SK group owner Choi Tae-won, the queen of figure skating Kim Yu-na.
Yonsei University (연세대학교)
Yonsei University is considered a rival to Korea University. There is a lot of controversy over whether Yonsei University comes first or Korea University comes first, but I think it is a bit too much to evaluate who comes first because the CSAT scores vary depending on the major. Unlike Korea University, Yonsei University has a somewhat soft and sophisticated academic style, which seems to have a somewhat young and sophisticated academic style because Sinchon, where Yonsei University is located, is located, is located in a university district where Yonsei University, Sogang University, Ewha Womans University, and Hongik University are together. In particular, Yonsei University and Korea University have a sports competition between two schools called Yonsei University and Korea University, during which soccer, basketball, baseball, and other university sports competitions are held and a big festival is held. Celebrities from Yonsei University include Lee Boo-jin, the younger sister of Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, Park Jin-young of JYP Entertainment and Movie Director Bong Joon-ho.
In addition, Sogang University, Hanyang University, Sungkyunkwan University, Chung-Ang University, Kyung Hee University, and Ewha Woman’s University are the top 10 universities, and KAIST and Pohang University of Science and Technology are other special universities. The three universities introduced above are called SKY after the first letter of the university in Korea, and once they enter the top 10 universities, KAIST, and Pohang University of Science and Technology, they are highly likely to succeed. Of course, entering the university I mentioned earlier does not guarantee success. However, in Korea, college entrance exams are very important, and we are working hard and competing hard to enter the above universities. If you were curious about universities in Korea, I hope my writing will help you.
