A representative of Seoul Arts College has announced the news of Lee Yoo Ri’s appointment as an adjunct professor at the institution, beginning from the first semester of 2015.
Reacting to the appointment on February 5th, Lee Yoo Ri said, “Actors and actresses feel empty after completing one project and fill in the emptiness by watching various genres of theatre plays and films to neutralize. I felt that it is crucial for me to go back to my original mindset as an actress after completing and earning an award with my role as Yeon Min Jung. I am looking forward to meet with the students of Seoul Arts College. Rather than being the pack leader or a professor, I want to share the energy and passion along with the students who may possibly be my colleagues in the near future.”
Since her debut in 2001 with KBS 2TV’s drama School 4, Lee Yoo Ri starred in more than 20 dramas, including, Loving You, Precious Family, Love and Ambition, and more. Recently, the actress won the 2014 MBC Drama Awards with her role Yeon Min Jung for Jang Bo Ri is Here!.
Some of the other professors of Seoul Arts College include director Lee Jae Kyu who recently directed film The Fatal Encounter, PD Jang Tae Kyu who recently produced drama My Love From the Stars, SBS first generation comedian Pyo In Bong, and actress Lee Hae In.
