Actor Yeo Jin-gu graduated from Namgang High School in Seoul on Friday.

“The last day at school gives me a sense of melancholy, but I’m proud of myself,” the 18-year-old fledging actor told the press. “I don’t know what to say.”

Yeo was accepted to Chung-Ang University, which is a private university, where he will study theater from March onwards.

Yeo was cast in the SBS historic TV series, “Dae-bak,” which revolves around a gambler called Jang Keun-suk, and King Yeongjo of Joseon Dynasty, played by Yeo.

Previously, Yeo rose to fame as a child actor when he played young King Lee Hwon in the hit TV series “Moon Embracing the Sun” (2012). The viewership ratings for this show surpassed 40 percent.
