Hallyu star Jang Nara graduated from Korea's Chung-Ang University today, receiving her long-overdue college diploma since entering the school as an acting major in 2000.
The singer and actress attended the graduation ceremony held Friday morning at Chung-Ang University Seoul campus, where she was also handed a special award for her contribution to the school.
Jang's graduation had been delayed due to her busy singing and acting career in Korea and China, where she is considered a major Hallyu star.
K-pop singer Lee Soo-young and TV personality Park Kyung-lim also showed up at the ceremony to congratulate the singer and reportedly gave her new underwear as a graduation gift.
She then became a household name with the success of her second album "Sweet Dream" (2002) which sold over 400,000 copies.
Jang also made an impressive crossover into acting, starring in several hit dramas and films including the popular sitcom "Non Stop 2" (MBC, 2001) and ""Successful Story of a Bright Girl" (SBS, 2002).
She is scheduled to head back to China after the graduation.
