13 Mar – It was recently revealed that Big Bang's junior member Seung-ri has decided to drop out of Chungang University.
As reported on Kpopstarz, on 8 March, YG Entertainment announced, "Seung-ri had attended Chungang University up until last year when he was unable to fully carry on his studies due to his busy schedules and was forced to make the decision of dropping out."
After being accepted into Chungang University with a major in Theatre Arts, Seung-ri has had constant trouble completing his degree due to his busy schedules in and out of Korea. The singer has finally decided to drop his studies following the launch of Big Bang's new album and the beginning of their '2012 Big Bang Alive Tour'.
However, Seung-ri has decided to continue his studies by enrolling at Gukje Digital University. It seemed that he has chosen this path so that he could take classes online while he attends to his schedules.
