KUALA LUMPUR: It seems that the land of K-Pop has attracted Hollywood giant Angelina Jolie to check out the educational side of South Korea.
According to Soompi, the 44-year-old actress and filmmaker will be sending her eldest son to one of South Korea’s most prestigious universities.
It was reported yesterday that Maddox Jolie-Pitt had decided to study biochemistry at Yonsei University.
People Magazine had quoted a source who said: “He got accepted to other universities but choose Yonsei.”
Her son, 18, was apparently described as someone who is very interested in Korean culture and its language.
The source also added that: “He has been studying the Korean language and he has lessons multiple times a week to prepare.”
It was previously reported that Jolie had visited Yonsei University for a campus tour last November with two of her sons, Maddox and Pax.
Apparently, Maddox had applied to the university but its admissions department had denied the report at the time.
Maddox, whom the Hollywood superstar adopted in 2002 from an orphanage in Battambang, Cambodia, is believed to be starting his classes this month.
Jolie will be traveling with him to South Korea to assist him in getting started.
The source said: “She is very proud. She will miss seeing him as much, but he’s ready.”
