He didn't receive his masters based on this info, it says "2009~". Meaning, he was/is in the process of attaining his masters. Maybe he dropped out to keep acting before he enlisted. Maybe he finished and VAST didn't bother updating this since he's nearly 40 and his fans probably don't care as much anymore.

Also, the most likely reason it took 8 years is because not every class is available online and he likely didn't take a full load like normal students. Filming affects location, hours, and dates of availability. There's no way to be physically present for class if he was filming dramas or movies and when class is on M/T/W/TH/F's. Korean universities are very strict on attendance.

Hello blackbeannoodle and thanks for the input! I'm not saying I can't learn any additional information (I'm always thirsting for additional knowledge) but I actually have 34 years of experience in academia (and counting :)) so I'm very familiar with the educational process as a whole. It happens to be one of my wheelhouses :). That's one of the reasons HB's educational background got my attention. I might add that the U.S. has strict post-secondary guidelines as well (too many to go into detail) but one in particular is named Satisfactory Academic Progress (better known as SAP). This is a BINJIN forum so I won't use up all the pages droning on about U.S. criteria.  

 

However, I do want to say if you make the argument that he has not received an MA based on how VAST has worded his educational background in the English version, you would also have to say it is not clear that he received his BA (undergraduate degree in 2004) as shown and supported on various sites. What it sounds like is that VAST needs to do a better job of maintaining its online database and/or translations so that the validity of the site can be trusted and not questioned. Otherwise, why offer profile information or any other information for that matter at all?

 

I think it was an Esquire interview where HB elaborated on his educational background but I've read so many things that it could have been some other interview. If I eventually come across it, I will post it or maybe it will be a case where I imagined it (although I don't think so).

Keep in mind the highlight said he enrolled in 2009 to pursue an MA. It didn't state he completed it in '09. I 'm still digging for other substantial information regarding his educational pursuits. However, nowadays, even with the busiest of schedules it is possible to pursue all kinds of degree programs even online to match a person's schedule. A lot of it has to do with how committed a person is. If HB's history is any indication, it becomes very feasible that he could have pursued and earned an MA. It seems that once he sets his sight on something, he goes all in. You also want to keep in mind that an MA does not require as many credits as a BA. In the U.S., MAs can be 24 credits, 36 credits, 48 credits, if there is an emphasis, it can even be 60 or 60+ credits as opposed to BAs being anywhere from 120 credits-128 credits (in most cases). Like I said before, unless SK is different from the U.S.

2010 - Once he finished filming Late Autumn in March, he was in Hawaii in March. Guess he could have done it between April-August. He was in Seoul this entire time attending events and playing sports/baseball a lot with the guys lol. However, Sept was Come Rain Come Sunshine filming for 2 weeks, then he was in Pusan Film Festival in Oct , before being even more busy with SeGa Then once he finally confirmed military in January 2011 as he passed his exam. He also did narration for Tears in Africa sometime during SeGa. Then he was busy working on CFs and promotion in Berlin in February before he went into military in March 7. unless he continued post military 2013-2014. He is less busy then lol.. I was looking at 2010 yesterday for other reasons. So that's why I know in detail as I wrote his sightings and film schedule down lol. 

 

Continuing school 2005-2007 I can see definitely happening lol. I graduated in theatre at university. (not acting) I knew a lot of actors. So I know how actors can do gigs while in school but they normally only do it during their breaks especially a tv show or a movie especially when you've a bigger role. Can't imagine doing MA especially on a busy film schedule lol. Unless MA in Korea doesn't take that long to do. Finishing off his BA after taking a break for Shower is easier to do. He said that he focused the next 3 years just on his acting career (post Shower) 

 

He just never mentioned he was still going to school in those interviews back then unless he didn't want to mention it. Maybe he should have also been given the cow nickname lol. He's more busier than Gong Yoo lol

So based on VAST's site, it's settled then. There are two boys in the family to which he is the 2nd brother. And, he received his MA in Art & Media from Chungang University, Seoul, Korea in 2009. His attendance dates for his BA and MA combined, based on above, spanned 2001-2009.

 

If the above link does not retain the English translation, the site will allow you to select an English, Japanese, Korean, or Chinese translation.

I also read that HB came from a family of lawyers so I would assume his father and brothers among others are lawyers. And I now understand why his father was not too happy at first when HB decided to go into acting.

I will have to agree with you on the above. I know someone who did a thorough research on HB and wrote a piece on him. She wrote that HB did receive his MA. And she also wrote that HB is the youngest of 3 boys. It also mentioned that he came from a family of lawyers. Let me see if I can post her article here.

@Felizak@t if Bin-ssi is taking a chartered flight, then his car will go straight in the tarmac and he doesn’t have to go to the drop off point in the airport. and if a certain someone decides to tag along (whether to send him off or that person decides to join), she can do it freely because less people will see :yaaa:

 

that’s just my mind playing tricks and my heart being hopeful :Megalol: 

 

while Bin-ssi is shooting in Jordan, the other half will be busy with her english lessons. :)

How beautiful if the other half can tag along while she is also doing her own things like as what you have mentioned her english skills and be applied and practise conversely to local jordanian. Still hoping the production crew will allow it.

I am guessing (hoping) that like us Jinnie will miss Binnie very badly too and will end up spending extra time on IG. She might end up watching FMV's too to get over the drought. So let's wait and hope for more IG action from our girl, while she's at it I wouldn't mind one more liking spree :selfie:

Every shipper's heart must be tested. Now is your chance. :approves:Who knows? We might get the best candies this time around. Oh my heart! Just imagining a picture of Yejin-ssi in Jordan will crash the internet. The whole BINJIN world will be speechless - for a few seconds then we'll party like crazy! :crazymad:

In regard to how many children his parents had that appears to be where the various databases make it confusing on how they describe the household. HB has  definitely confirmed at other times that his parents had only 2 children (his brother and him). The confusion seems to come in when some sites say 2 brothers instead of 2 sons of which HB was the second son. Things are literally getting lost in translation.

He has ONE brother only. On his official bio on Vast this is confirmed. I also dont think his brother is a lawyer but he seems very protective of his family and they want their lives to remain private so we should respect that also.

HB spoke on this many times and he never explained it fully but as a long time fan from what i understood is that HB's father didnt want him to become an actor at first, so HB had to negociate with him  about  his education. Parents are always worried about that when their children choose a profession that doesnt require high level education so his father probably wanted him to study and have a good resume so the deal he made with his dad was that he would act and continue his studies and he would go to the highest level no matter what. He got his first roles before he finished school but never stopped his studies. He finished University around the time he completed Kim Sam soon but then he went back again to get a BA in theater and film. He fulfilled his goals while remaining a good son. Now he is CEO of a management and media company. Seriously as a parent i would be so so proud to have this amazing son. He has achieved everything now, only love, marriage and children are left to complete.

 

 

 

By the way, I still think SYJ will travel to Jordan in secret lol.

 

 

I know! I had to basically reread his interviews again to fully piece together what he said back then on how he started and school. The whole taking break for Shower and not deciding to return back to school threw me off lol. As originally I thought it was break for Shower, then he eventually decided to go back to school after he got over his embarrassment after what happened with that movie. However, when he said the next 3 years focusing on his acting career, it was clear he wasn't doing school then. Do you remember where he said he went back to school again after MNIKSS? Maybe it is lost and not on Soompi no more lol. It could have been in the old thread that is no longer available lol.

 

Also, I believe that too with Jinnie. However, why did Navar have to tell us when they were flying out LOL! Originally they were keeping it under wraps and not going to let the public know when they were leaving lol.
