Kutsuna Shiori quits university to concentrate on her acting career


Kutsuna Shiori reportedly quit university this year to concentrate on her acting career after passing the entrance exams in 2010 and attending class since 2011. According to insiders, although Kutsuna felt that it was a waste to give up her studies, her tight filming schedule made it difficult for her to go to school thus she decided to give that up and concentrate on her career. As a result of this decision, there is speculation that this might change the way things are in the young actresses market.

Kutsuna had been nicknamed as the Oscar trio along with her peers Takei Emi and Gouriki Ayame as the next generation of stars who will support their agency Oscar. In the beginning, Kutsuna's achievements seemed to pale in comparison to Takei and Gouriki who were getting lots of CM deals and getting involved in various dramas and movies. As Kutsuna faced a bit of difficulty in accepting work offers due to her studies, it made her schedule less flexible than the others. However, now that she's free to concentrate on her acting career and that she had hit dramas under her belt e.g. "Kaseifu no Mita" as well as her reputation for being the best in terms of acting in the trio, that has given Kutsuna an advantage to be on par with Takei and Gouriki or even surpass them.

If acting is what she wants to do she might as well concentrate on it for now, she'll be able to afford to go back to university later if she wants :)

As much as I'm all for post-secondary education, I have to admit university isn't always the best way to go--especially if you already have a solid acting career and a good reputation to go with it. Besides, she can always go back when she has more time.

Out of the trio she is definitely the best in acting.

Oh~ Kutsuna Shiori is definetly one of my favorite actresses, she is so sweet!! For some people Gouriki and Takei might have better looks, but in acting I think it's unanimous that Kutsuna is by far the best among the three!

I really wish she would finish university. Though our lives don't resume to our academic achievements, I still think that it's a very important part of a person's growth and education. It's a pity that many young people in the entertainment industry aren't able to get a university degree because of their hectic schedules. But, of course, acting is what she wants to do and if attending university is preventing her from getting the roles she wants I think she's right to quit... I hope that now that she can dedicate full time we'll be able to see more of her in leading roles and other amazing works!=D

Eh I always thought she'd the kind of actress that would choose school. From my limited time watching her on variety I feel like she's not enjoying the game/talk, like for her it's silly
