Tough decision. Lee Hi is putting her singing career before her college education.

The 18-year-old singer has revealed that she decided to prioritize her music promotional activities over revising for her college entrance exams (which high school students in Korea take to progress on to higher education colleges).

"Instead of taking the College Scholastic Ability Test on November 13, I rehearsed with Akdong Musician’s Lee Suhyun until 4am in the morning," the starlet — who currently attends School of Performing Arts Seoul — says.

The "Rose" songstress adds, "My dream is to be a singer, and I am working as a singer under the company YG Entertainment, hence believe that I should focus on my current activities."

"I will go to college when there is something specific I want to learn."
