The term melting pot refers to the phenomenon of melting different elements together into a harmonious whole. The word is frequently used in today's globalized society as diverse cultures are becoming more and more integrated. Borrowing the term, the anthem for the Division of International Studies (DIS), "The Melting Pot," was written by Kim Cheon-woo (DIS, 3rd year). As it was introduced on the official blog page of the DIS, the song has the meaning of making a harmonious environment for DIS students.
 
Kim Cheon-woo (DIS, 3rd year) shared his experience of making an anthem for the DIS in order to make lasting memories with his fellow students.

Having an interest in music since his middle school years, Kim has continuously engaged himself in musical activities. It was Kim who rejuvenated DISound, the band club of the DIS in 2014, which was his first year at Hanyang University. Based upon such activities, Kim managed to gather five more members to make the anthem together.
 
“Returning to school after finishing my military service, I wanted to do something meaningful with my friends that would actually be helpful to our department," recalled Kim during the interview. He explained that it was a disappointment how he and his classmates had to seperate due to internships and exchange study programs. Teaming up with Kim Ha-rim, Shin Joon-ho, Park Jun-hyung, Shin Jae-ah (DIS, 3rd year), and Park Ju-hyun (DIS, 4th year), Kim was able to complete the song "Melting Pot."
 
The term was chosen by Kim, knowing the diversity of ethnicities in the DIS. The diversity includes living in various countries abroad, and how they are able to come together as everything molds together within the same pot. Such various students are able to come together and show respect towards each other while taking the same courses and communicating with each other throughout their school years in the DIS.
 
Kim shared his future plans of pursuing his musical dreams. Going to the U.S. as an exchange student next semester, Kim mentioned how he wants to find his own musical colors during the exchange program.  
 
Kim mentioned that the term melting pot was first used to represent the DIS, yet it is not only limited to this particular division but can be applied to Hanyang University as a whole. He showed strong enthusiasm for making a representative song for Hanyang University also. “Although I did use the term melting pot for the anthem, I believe that there is still room for improvement. Just because someone is different, it does not mean that they are wrong. I hope that a culture where everyone is warmly welcomed and respected is set,” concluded Kim.
