Do I need a degree to be a data scientist? :(

Hello. I don’t know how to get career counseling. So I write here. Do I need a degree to be a data scientist?
I learned mechanics in college for two years, but I like data science better.
I’m wondering if I need a bachelor’s degree, master’s or doctorate these days.
In Korea, even if you do not attend a four-year university, you can get a bachelor’s degree by taking a professional certificate or exam. I’ve applied for it, but I don’t know if it’s right. I have to spend time on things that aren’t related to data science.
Anyway, be happy! I’m going to eat Korean chicken.
