[Faculty]Kim Young-san, a Professor from the Division of Economics and Finance, Presents "Proposal and Challenges for Normalization of Electricity Charges"

On August 24, Professor Kim Young-san, from the Division of Economics and Finance of Hanyang University, participated in the "Proposal and Challeges for Normalization of Electricity Charges" debate hosted by the Energy Conversion Forum at the Korea Press Center. Currently, academic circles, civic groups, and industry officials have been discussing the reorganization of KEPCO's electricity rate system. Professor Kim Young-san, who was the presenter of the day, introduced △the role of the retail sales department △the cost structure and design principles of electricity rates △the current method and process of determining electricity rates such as: Korea Electric Power Co., the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy, and the Ministry of Strategy and Finance △and the cost recovery rate of 98% on average, 100% monopoly. Together he introduced the problems and limitations of the current electricity rate system and its operation. Professor Kim evaluated the current electricity rate system by saying, "it is too rigid to reflect changes in costs in a timely manner." He added, "This limits consumers' choice, and the development of various products are also low." In addition, he suggested that the problems of the existing system should be solved by △introducing a fuel cost linkage system that automatically reflects fluctuations in anthracite, natural gas, and oil prices in electricity rates periodically and by △including emission rights costs as fuel costs in the fuel cost linkage system. As an explanation, he mentioned that KEPCO's environmental cost reflection plan should include emission rights in fuel costs, but the RPS (new renewable energy supply obligation system) and the FIT (power generation difference support system) should be separated as independent accounting instead of the KEPCO's electricity purchase cost. Professor Kim also pointed out, "Electricity is more likely to differ in terms of characteristics and technology than before, but it does not differ because of institutional and economic reasons" and introduced "examples of innovation and Opening in the EU, Japan's Retail Sector." On this day, academia, civic groups, and industry officials, including Kim Young-san, a professor at Hanyang University's Graduate School of Economics, Yoon Soon-jin, a professor at Seoul National University's Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Lee Yoo-soo, a senior researcher at the Korea Institute of Energy Economics, Seok Kwang-hoon, an expert at GreenKorea, Kim Sun-kyo, an associate researcher at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Evaluation, Lee Si-young, a professor at Korea University of Industrial Technology, Park Won-ju, the secretary general of the private development association, Lee Suh-hye, the E-consumer research director were all participants in this Energy Conversion Forum.

[Faculty]Professor Jung Jae-chan Delivered Lecture at JTBC 'Class with Difference'

On August 18th, Jung Jae-chan, a Hanyang University Professor in the Department of Korean Language Education revisioned the life of poets Lee Yook-sa and Yoon Dong-ju, at a JTBC Program 'Class with Difference' for the National Liberation day. During the dark ages of the Japanese colonial era of the 1990s, the two poets served as the representatives of the emotions and voices of Koreans, protesting against Japan. While their names have been recalled many times through numerous musicals and movies, their lives itself were not fully dealt with. From this lecture, Professor Jung closely compared their lives and told their true stories. ▲ Professor Jung Jae-chan lecturing at 'Class with Difference' (Contributed by: JTBC) The recording of 'Class with Difference,' which has been operated recently, began with the stage of a rapper BewhY, who entered the stage by calling out "Korea ura." Last year, BewhY received big applause by presenting 'My Land,' a song that has been created to celebrate the 100th year of the establishment of the Korean Provisional Government. Professor Jung entered the stage after BewhY, mentioning that he will present "both the poem and life of the poets." As the lecture began, Professor Jung started with the story of poet Yoon Dong-ju, saying that "the poet also had to change his name due to the command of the Japanese government, during the year 1940." After, he introduced the poem 'Confession,' which the poet wrote five days before he changed his name. Professor Jung's interpretation of the poem moved the hearts of the students. Meanwhile, he also presented the life of Lee Yook-sa, who showed an opposite stance with the poet Yoon Dong-ju. The poem 'Climax' that he wrote during the dark ages where Koreans had to live with fear in their lives, showed the climax of toughness. The meaning of 'rainbows made out of steel,' which Professor Jung interpreted brought the standing ovation of the students. Professor Jung started his life as a teacher by teaching at a high school, where he taught students for 10 years. In 2008, he became a professor at Hanyang University's Department of Korean Language Education. Some of his books are Ideology and Theory of a Modern Poetry, For the Sociology in Literature Education, Pheonomenon and Recognition of Literature Education. One of his books called 'To Those that Have Forgotten Poetry', which he wrote after having his general lecture 'Reading the Poetry with Cultural Blending' as its basis, had been selected as the book of the year at Wanju-gun in 2019.
