Comments & Suggestions on No.330

by Joe Sung-hoon (Dept. of Polymer Engineering, Senior) 기자2009.03.02 00:00:00

Comparing edition No.329 of the KNU Times with No.330, the articles in No.329 were mainly focused on affairs in KNU and the lives of students. However, No.330 seemed to take a wider view, dealing not only with issues related to our own campus, but also representing larger interests - society, education and local government - and so it was able to cater to a variety of readers.



First of all, Cover Story, ‘A Flood with a Drought’ made me fall in deep reflection on the fundamental problems of the Korean educational system. The article explained the vicious circle in detail - the preference for high level education, which produced an excessive number of university graduates, far exceeding the demand of our society. As a result, the educational problems have caused other social problems: unemployment, economic recession, and inequality. Even then, most students continue to enroll in university without any true purpose or knowledge of the university’s functions. It is time to think about why we entered university and what to do as university students. Without these kinds of considerations , it is impossible to upgrade the quality of KNU.


Secondly, ‘Lo and behold,’ the interview with the CEO, Cho Woong-rae, shows the role model of contemporary businessmen. Under the rapidly changing social situations of these days, two concepts – a permanent job and stabilization – have become outdated ideas . The experience of Mr. Cho and his great success in the telephonic service industry, along with his new challenge as Sunyang’s CEO, tell us that the ultimate winners are the people who are capable of understanding and adapting to the changing paradigm. Thus, the article can give useful advice to KNU students who are reluctant to get out of their old customs. Therefore, we need to knock on the door of opportunity with full confidence and the spirit of pioneers, like Mr. Cho.


In addition, KNU Times No.330 gave us an opportunity to renew our understanding of local traditional cultures. As the article ‘We’ve coexisted with Yugi for a long time’ suggests, even though we have breathed the air of our cultural heritages for our whole lives, we have not internalized it at all. The Daegu Bangjja Yugi museum can be an attractive place for both Daegu citizens and foreigners, who have suffered from a lack of tour sites in Daegu. Moreover, the article ‘Is this a dance or a martial art?’ is praiseworthy in my opinion, because it introduces taekkyeon , which is one of Korea’s most precious traditional heritages. As mentioned previously in the article, we usually underestimate the potential of our own martial arts. Thus, we need to have a new understanding of our own cultures, and a pride for our local area.


Consequently, KNU Times No.330 deserves to be evaluated highly, because it gave us the opportunity to think about Korean educational problems, which link to social and economical problems, it suggested two essential spiritual aspects - defiant attitude, and sensibility to the changing needs of the times, and it also introduced local traditional heritages.


In conclusion, all the articles went well together and were sufficient to encourage most of the readers. In 2009, I hope that the KNU Times will continue to be aware of the broader topics - society, education, economy, and local culture - as well as the common issues in our own campus. By doing this, the KNU Times could not only broaden their class of subscribers but also obtain more brilliant ideas to improve quality of the newspaper.
