Actress Kim Yoo-jung, 18, will not be taking the college entrance exam this year, her management agency Sidus HQ said Tuesday.

The actress, who is currently in her final year of high school, has decided not to take the college scholastic ability test and instead focus on acting, the agency said in a statement.

“It is still not known whether or not she will take the exam next year. She will decide that later on,” the statement added.

Kim made her acting debut at the age of 4 as a child actor. She rose to popularity through roles in shows such as “Moon Embracing the Sun” (2012), “May Queen” (2012) and “Angry Mom” (2015).

Last year, Kim starred in the period piece “Love in the Moonlight,” about a crown prince falling in love with a eunuch, alongside actor Park Bo-gum.

Kim played the role of Hong Ra-on, a struggling girl who poses as a eunuch to live at the royal court.
