[Student]Student Lee Eun-hye, Who Desires to Share More of One's Life Through Donation

“Through my donation experience, I want to pursue a life of sharing and being a generous person who provides help to the places that are in need.” Lee Eun-hye, who acquired a Master's degree in Fusion and Marine Sciences in 2019, donated the fee provided by BK21 (BrainKorea 21), living expenses, and the tuition to the Marine and Atmosphere Interaction Research Center, which had been provided by the Department of Fusion Marine Sciences. Like Lee, there are many alumni cheering up the students of Hanyang to open up their dreams in various fields. ▲ Alumna Lee Eun-hye acquired a Master's degree in Fusion and Marine Sciences. Q. Please give a brief introduction of yourself. A. I graduated as the class of 13 as an undergraduate from the Department of Fusion Marine Sciences. I desired to learn more about the field in graduate school, especially after listening to the lectures of professor Yeh Sang-wook, who lectured on topics such as the 'Introduction to Atmosphere Sciences' and 'Marine and Atmosphere'. I entered the research lab as the class of 18, studied the field for 2 years, and was given a master's degree in August. Q. What do people in the Department of Fusion Marine Scienes study? A. The department studies understanding and preserving the future envrionment of the Earth, while also studying the characteristics of the marine environment that shift according to the advancement of national technologies related to marine development. The department also defines the roles of marine organisms, reactions of the marine ecosystem, and econlgical role of the marine lives. The department is fostering specialists that can adopt to the actual field of research, by providing field experiences using marine research ship. Q. Please tell us what led you to donate to the research center. A. I decided to donate the amount of money that I had been provided by participating as the researcher on a research project. The amount had been given to me because the Department of Fusion Marine Sciences had been selected as the BK21 department. Learning from my guidance professor who is contributing for humanity by predicting climate change and also making a contribution, I also wanted to donate the amount, hoping that it would be used in a better place. During the 2 years of studying for my master's degree, I witnessed the research fee being used only for the right purposes. I wanted to thank my professor for providing economic and mental support throughout the years. As a result, I decided to donate the money directly for the research center. Q. What is the Marine and Atmosphere Research Center like? A. The research center is conducting sutdies on understanding and predicting the changes of the Earth's climate environment. The purpose of the study lies in serving humanity by predicting unusual weather events caused by global warming, climate change, and the possible disasters that can occur. The research center not only conducts studies but also presents the study results at academic conferences inside and outside the country, also having the time to share the information with the centers of other universities through workshops. Q. Is there any event that you got to have a perspective on donating as a student? A. Wherever the donation is made, or whatever the amount is, I feel like the donated amount has always been used for the development of the center, considering the minds of the donor. Through this experience of donation, I want to pursue the life of sharing and being a generous person that provides help to the places that are in need. Q. Last words to the Hanyang University students of ERICA Campus! A. There are only good things to come about! I envy the fact that the Su-in line has been opened, and there will be a new Shin-an line opening in the near future. I hope that all of the students get to graduate from school after acquiring various experiences in our campus, which is famous for university-industry cooperation. I also hope that all students grow up with the professors of our univeristy who have excellent research skills. The press hopes that the inverview with Lee Eun-hye becomes a celebration for the students of Hanyang University ERICA and an indirect experience on donation. We also wish for a bright future to the graduates of Hanyang, including alumna Lee Eun-hye. Global News Team Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Faculty]Purifying the Underground Particulate Matter

The danger of particulate matter, which are the extremely small hazardous particles suspended in air, has been brought to public attention lately, but the high level of particle pollution inside the subway tunnels are often disregarded. High-speed trains, rail structures, crossties, and roadbeds in airless tunnels produce a large amount of heavy metal particles that cause health problems in the human respiratory and brain nervous systems. To solve this, Professor Jo Byung-wan (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, College of Engineering) obtained a patent on the efficient purification of underground particulate matter. The existing dust collector, which uses a huge motor, had problems with the high energy cost and loud noise, and, thus, are usually not activated. Instead, Jo sought for an economic and scientific method to purify the underground air. As a result, his research was conducted for a period of two years. Jo’s method was based on the Bernoulli principle, which states that the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy of fluid is always constant. The tube designed by Jo gathers the particulate matter by natural ventilation derived from the Bernoulli principle. After the particulate matter gathers up, a charge method of plasma and water particles removes the charge of matter, enabling efficient air cleaning. Professor Jo Byung-wan (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, College of Engineering) obtained a patent on the efficient purification of underground particulate matter. "What's left is the cooperative research with the metropolitan metro for an actual implementation." Jo expects this new invention to lead to a healthier change in the international subway construction. “I am also planning to suggest a customized particulate matter gauge for each underground tunnel by analyzing the characteristics of dynamic fluid in train running," said Jo.

[Student]From Miss Grand Korea to Pianist, Actor, and Robot Inventor

Lee Hyun-young (Department of Theater and Film, 3rd year) is called by many titles: a concours-winning pianist, a first-prize inventor at a robot competition, a video director, and an actor. Recently, she won the 'Queen' at Miss Grand Korea, adding this new title to her career. As a young pianist "I loved music and the arts since childhood," said Lee. When she was 8 years old, Lee won the grand prize at the JoongAng music concours as a young pianist. Since then, she has participated in concours each year until middle school. "The experience allowed me to build confidence in expressing myself to the audience and enjoy the tension on stage from a young age.” Her love towards the arts gave Lee the motivation to try and experience all fields of comprehensive art and study deep into this field. This was also the motivation behind Lee entering Hanyang's Department of Theater and Film. Lessons from the filming site During her school years, Lee appeared in a number of movies and dramas as a supporting actor. Lee shared one of her episodes, saying, "I once filmed a scene with Yeo Jin-goo (a famous actor), and in the middle of the scene we both burst into laughter. It was captured in the bloopers video which I sometimes watch again to remember those days." While experiencing the filming site in person and meeting with the directors and broadcasting producers, Lee said she learned to look at the media from different angles and to understand the intention of production. Lee Hyun-young (Department of Theater and Film, 3rd year) is active in various fields, achieving great results in music, acting, and inventing. (Photo courytesy of Lee) Expanding into the field of science Lee's interest streched beyond the boundary of arts. Lee participated in diverse science and engineering contests since middle school. She was also interested in technology entrepeneurship. "At the time, I even interviewed the CEO of Korea Venture Business Association for information." Based on what she learned, Lee spent three years watching the lectures on knowledge convergence, future humanities, and CEO to create her own business model, and analyzed the real case strategies of business companies. As the result, Lee established a business item named 'Capture Talk' and won the grand prize in the contest held by KAIST IP-CEO in three categories, robot, business plan, and business modelling. More recently, Lee became interested in live film performance genres which incorporate IT technologies like holograms and motion interactions into stage performances. "After such diverse experiences, I realized that all fields are intimately connected to one another," said Lee. A new challenge, Miss Grand Korea Miss Grand Korea is a contest to select the Korean representative for Miss Grand International, the world's leading beauty contest. "I participated in the contest because I wanted a new challenge in life to motivate my dream as an actor," said Lee. She explained the various stage experiences helped her enjoy the stage and gain the best honor of being selected as 'Queen.' Lee won the 'Queen' at Miss Grand Korea. (Photo courtesy of Lee) For now, Lee plans to work hard to prepare for Miss Grand International as the representative of Korea. "After the contest, I want to fulfill my dream as the 'all-around entertainer' and try out in the field of broadcasting," said Lee. "I am also interested in working as a newscaster and model, and I wish to try my best to achieve results in various fields." Hwang Hee-won

[Student]Jung Yeon-woo Wins the Grand Prize in the Onnara Korean Traditional Music Competition

Jung Yeon-woo (Department of Korean Traditional Music, 4th year) won the Grand Prize at the 40th Onnara Korean Traditional Music Competition on July 7, 2020. Held under the auspices of the National Gugak Center for 40 years, the Onnara competition is famously known to all aspiring Korean traditional musicians as the gateway to being designated as a person of national prestige. After competing four times, Jung has finally seen the fruits of his effort and was awarded with 10 million won in prize money, the presidential award, and military exemption. In his interview with News H, Jung shared his feelings after winning the grand prize. Jung Yeon-woo (Department of Korean Traditional Music, 4th year) won the Grand Prize at the 40th Onnara Korean Traditional Music Competition. (Photo courtesy of Jung) When he was 10 years old, Jung first met the Korean traditional musical instrument called Dae-gum. Though he had little interest in Korean traditional music in general, the unique sound of the instrument fascinated Jung. After repeatedly listening to its clear but deep sound, Jung decided his future career in his fifth year of elementary school. Attending Hanyang’s Department of Korean Traditional Music, Jung said his biggest aspiration during university life was to win the grand prize at the Onnara Korean Traditional Music Competition, which was the goal for many of his seniors as well. After the first three trials, Jung failed to win an award. However, his faith in his skills gave him the drive to try out for a fourth time. Jung entered the competition with a piece named "Seo Yong-suk styled Dae-gum San-jo," and achieved his goal of winning the grand prize. "To be honest, what initially appealed to me the most was that the winner is exempt from military service," said Jung. "However, in the end, what was more valuable was the way I constantly improved after each failure and with continuous practice." Based on his experience, Jung also gave a tip for future contestants. "Since there are many judges with different tastes, I learned that it is impossible to please every judge with a self-initiated interpretation of a piece of music. Personally, I think I got through the contest by trying to follow the criteria as strictly as possible." Jung after winning the Grand Prize at the Onnara Korean Traditional Music Competition. (Photo courtesy of Jung) "My dream is to play the Korean traditional music all around the world," said Jung. "Rather than trying to make the traditional music known, I aim to become a great musician first so that the public naturally knows our traditional music." Jung added that he wants to thank his parents, who did not lose faith in him and constantly prayed for him. Also, he told his fellow Hanyangians who are devoting themselves to Korean traditional music to be proud of what they are doing. Lee Yoon-seo

[Student]Song of Happiness with a Beautiful Voice

"I want to bring happiness through my songs. I hope this happiness will spread and make the world brighter. If my voice can deliver happiness to people, that would be my joy and happiness." A child who used to sing "yodel"grew up dreaming of becoming a singer and went up on stage. We met Kim Ye-ji, alumni of the Department of English Language and Culture, who participated in "Vocal Play 2" program as a representative of Hanyang University ERICA. Let us hear her story, who was loved by many for her singing skills and extraordinary bright energy. A coincidence and the determination to grab the opportunity "I was motivated by the activities in the central club, the Mungge Cloud. I posted a video of my singing on social media. The broadcast writer saw this and contacted me." She said that this opportunity wasn't welcoming at first. She was afraid that she might not be able to survive among many talented people as she did not major in music. However, her light-hearted decision: "Okay, let's just try," seemed to have been the key to making it up to round 16. A representative of Hanyang University ERICA, the place she dreamed of She was thrilled by the fact that she was the representative of Hanyang University ERICA among various universities. She, who found her dream through school club activities, said that school helped her realize that singing on stage in front of people was what she really wanted to do. To show her gratefulness, she decided to represent her school in this program. "I still remember the fall festival of 2017 fall semester. I participated in a club contest as a representative of the Mungge Cloud club and proudly won first place. I was proud to win the first prize over many prominent bands and dance teams. In the pop song contest which was held by the department, I sang a yodeling song and won both first place and the popularity award. I'm really grateful to the school that allowed me to make great memories with music." As I yodel to spread happiness "I started yodeling in elementary school after my mother recommended a specialty class. Although I started it out of curiosity, I was able to gain a lot of experience for 6 years after getting selected as a member of the Incheon Children's Yodel Group. I went around the country to perform, and I guess that experience has made me who I am now." She won over the judges and audience by yodeling instead of singing ordinary pop songs in the preliminary stage. As it was her first broadcast, she was very nervous, but her experiences from childhood led her to qualify. She said that she tried to put on a big smile and enjoy the song on stage as yodeling becomes more entertaining and exciting only when the singer sings it excitedly. She added that she only felt tension after finishing her performance and the corners of her lips refused to come down. Alumni Kim Ye-ji's Optimistic Energy! Kim Ye-ji received a lot of attention and love for her unique positive charm and bubbly character. She said she has her own mindset that keeps her like this. "I try to worry less. Since I was young, I have believed in the power that a positive mindset can bring. Even in bad situations, I try to look at the positive. I guess this naturally comes out of my attitude. Sometimes I hear bitter comments like "Isn't that too optimistic?" but I like myself like this. Everyone has different thoughts and tendencies. I always try to think positively by thinking "I have my own way!" Future plans "First, I'm trying very hard to become a singer. I aim to release my own song. I'm also thinking about Youtube content these days. I currently have a Youtube channel called Yeidi (예이디), where I film myself singing and also other various things like a vlog. I'm trying to discover and develop content that only I can do." As a senior on the dream path to a junior who is wandering the path "I want to tell them not to be afraid as it is okay to pursue careers that have no relation to their major. Like how I dream to become a singer without majoring in music, I don't want them to be caught up in this frame. I hope they have the 'greatness' to get out of the frame and move on to a bigger world." She added that this "greatness" comes from the objective view that one has. Knowing what you like and what you're good at will give you confidence. With confidence, you will succeed. It is okay to fall along the way. Your early twenties are the age where you can still get up after a fall. "I hope you find your dream and find a happy path," she added, leaving a heartfelt message of support. Kim Ye-ji is pushing herself towards her dream with the power of boldness. What goal would she have as a singer? "I want to bring happiness through my songs. I hope this happiness will spread and make the world brighter. If my voice can deliver happiness to people, that would be my joy and happiness." We support the future of Kim Ye-ji alumni to bring happiness to the world through her songs. ▲ Kim Ye-ji, the representative of ERICA in "Vocal Play 2" ▲Kim Ye-ji singing at the ERICA fall festival Global News Team Translation by: Lee Hee-jin

[Student]"The COVID-19 Era Can Still be Better with Extra Help." Student Union Fee Payment Cancelled for 2020 Fall Semester

Hanyang University ERICA's Student Union Harang decided to cancel the payment of the student union fees for the 2020 fall semester. We talked to Yoon Ji-seok ERICA student union president about the decision. ▲ (From the left) Choi Jea-ui ERICA Student Union Vice President and Yoon Ji-seok President Q. The student union fee has been changed. How will the changes be implemented? A. The student union fee has been a selective choice that students can check and make payments for when submitting their tuition fee. After hearing considerations at the central committee, all entities within the school that use the student union fee have agreed not to receive the fee for the fall semester of 2020 and sent the requested document to the university (Office of Planning - Finance Team of the Seoul Campus). Through some debate, Hanyang University ERICA decided to cancel the student union fee payment for the 2020 fall semester. Q. What was the inspiration for this idea? A. The number of students visiting the school has been greatly reduced due to COVID-19, and the events that students can participate in have been canceled or postponed. Accordingly, after many discussions, we decided that it would be possible to operate the student union and the center meeting solely with the extra budget carried over from last semester. To reduce the burden of the students, we decided to cancel the student union fee payment for the 2020 fall semester. Q. We are curious how the student union and the central committee will operate without the student union fee. A. The student union and the central committee will operate as before without any changes. However, events will be planned according to the COVID-19 situation for the fall semester, in hopes that we can be more helpful to the students. Q. What are the foreseeable plans of the student union Harang, and what do you want to say before the end of the interview? A. All plans except the outdoor group events are being prepared without any problems. We are also trying our best to expand the scholarship and welfare benefits that students can receive during the era of COVID-19. As it is difficult to operate offline events, we will remain close to the students through Harang Tube, and the official Youtube Channel of Hanyang University ERICA. Please let us know any time when difficulties occur within the school through official student union Harang's SNS accounts (Instagram, Facebook), and we will try our best to take fast and clear action.

[Faculty]Discovery of New Causative Gene of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that inflames various joints of the body, typically hands and feet, and possibly also the lungs and blood vessels. Swelling of the joints causes pain and stiffness, and if it persists, fatigue and weight loss will follow. Professor Bae Sang-cheol (Department of Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine) became the first in the world to identify six novel susceptibility loci of the rheumatoid arthritis, and has thus received worldwide recognition. Bae is a pioneer in genetic epidemiological studies and the innovative research of rheumatoid diseases underlying precision medicine. Bae's primary research field was rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (a similar autoimmune disease) which are both intractable diseases. Since 2000, Bae has conducted genetic epidemiology research in order to determine the causes of the disease. The aim of the study was to discover the correlation between rheumatoid arthritis and genomic genetic drift. “The analyzation was made possible thanks to the Korean Chip, a genetic chip containing nearly one million bits of Korean genetic information, provided by the dielectric center of the Korea National Institute of Health,” said Bae. Moreover, to better understand the biological mechanisms, the research combined the computational biological analysis about the information on transcriptome, the sum of the RNA expressed in a cell or tissue, and epigenome, the sum of information in the sequence changed by genomes. Bae succeeded in identifying six new causative genetic drifts of rheumatoid arthritis that had not been reported before, named SLAMF6, CXCL13, SWAP70, NFKBIA, ZFP36L1, and LINC00158. In particular, he found a new causative genetic drift, named SH2B3, which is found exclusively in East Asian patients. “The new finding will allow a deeper understanding of the outbreak mechanism of rheumatoid arthritis, and it will be utilized to predict and diagnose the disease as well as to develop customized treatment for patients in the future,” said Bae. Professor Bae Sang-cheol (Department of Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine) found six new causative genetic drifts of rheumatoid arthritis. (Photo courtesy of Bae) Currently, Bae is working to realize future medical science that will correctly predict and prevent rheumatoid disease. “There is still a lack of research on Asians who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis," explained Bae. "We will continue to study patients' prognoses, drug reactions, and causes of deterioration, beyond simple genetics. I hope our future study will soon be able to compensate for the inadequacy of the current information.” Hwang Hee-won

[Alumni]Jang Ki-min’s Design Economy Changes The Way We Think

Jang Ki-min (M.S. in Industrial Design, '12) is a Hanyang alumnus who aspires to present to his readers the revolutionary change we can make in our everyday thoughts. His new book Why Is Hongdae Filled with People Not Attending Hongik University? was published under the premise that our minds are trapped within conventional perspectives, and, through his book, Jang argues how important it is to think outside the box by giving his own interpretations of design and economy. On writing the book Jang is a pioneer in the study of the concept "design economy." After writing numerous columns for Maeil Business Newspaper, Kookmin University, and Myungji University on the topic of design economy, Jang said he decided to combine all his columns and make them into a single book. When he first wrote the script and sent it to publishing companies, he worried that no one would call him back for his manuscripts. However, 20 companies contacted him wanting to publish his book, and within the week of its publication, the book became one of Kyobo Book Centre’s bestsellers. Jang Ki-min (M.S. in Industrial Design, '12)'s new book Why Is Hongdae Filled with People Not Attending Hongik University? became one of Kyobo Book Centre's bestsellers within the week of its publication. (Photo courtesy of Jang) Why Is Hongdae Filled with People Not Attending Hongik University? The book starts with an interesting title, which is also the essence of one of the 47 economic theories introduced in the book, cognitive economics. “No one in South Korea thinks twice about having their meeting place be Hongdae. However, people hesitate to meet in other areas such as in front of Korea University." According to Jang, once the correlation between Hongdae and a so-called "hot place" is manifested, it leads to a conventional and almost unconscious decision of people to go to that place. This then leads to the commercial development of the place, creating a virtuous circle. Likewise, Jang argues that the design is not "to decorate." Rather, it is "to give meaning." The design - usually of social conventions - reshapes people's thoughts and decisions. Based on the concept of design economy, the book similarly draws attention to the various business or economic phenomenon occurred by design. By combining design with economic phenomena such as marketing, media, and start-ups, Jang presents the readers with unique ideas and new insights to realize the design economy surrounding them, and urges them to tackle these unconscious choices. Jang said he wants to change the way people make unconscious decisions in their lives. Jang also emphasized the power to think outside the box and to see through the essence of objects to his fellow Hanyang students. Instead of being confined to a limited way of thinking, Jang, as he expresses throughout his new book, hopes that people will develop the strength to think on their own. Lee Yoon-seo

[Alumni][ERICA’s Power] 34th ERICA Student Body President Jeon Yong-ki Becomes the Youngest Member of the National Assembly

ERICA Student Body President Jeon Yong-ki Becomes the Youngest Member of the National Assembly Alumnus Jeon Yong-ki (Division of Sport Science, Class of ’10) The number of newly-elected members of the 21st National Assembly is 151. As all citizen wish for a ‘working National Assembly,’ their expectations for the representatives are very high. There are different calls for change for the members in their 20s and 30s of the National Assembly than in previous political moments. Deputy Jeon Yong-ki is one of the members of the 21st National Assembly. As a former ERICA student body president, we asked him about youth politics, an area of the New Politics. ▲ Alumnus Jeon Yong-ki (Division of Sport Science, Class of ’10) A young deputy in his twenties, born by the hopes of the youth Deputy Jeon Yong-ki, who proudly made his entry to the 21st National Assembly has just started his work as a member. Born in 1991, he is the youngest member of the Democratic Party of Korea in history and the youngest male member of the National Assembly selected in the 21st Assembly election. “It didn’t feel real when I was elected. When it was time to go to the National Assembly, the responsibility came on me too heavily. I started my political activities by working for 3-4 years as the Chairman of the National University Student Council in the Democratic Party of Korea, and I am aware of how much my seniors have worked over the past 10 years to make members in their 20s and 30s of the National Assembly. I think my getting elected this time is the result of all that.” He has steered a great amount of interest by being elected 6 times as a proportional representative by breaking through the harsh proportional elections in the Democratic Party of Korea election process. It was a miracle, and everyone was surprised about how such a young person with only 4 years of political party experience received votes. His biggest supporters were none other than young partisans nationwide. The young partisans were the strongest and firmest strength during the 800,000 electoral colleges’ 1st election and the central committee's 2nd election. As a result, he firmly achieved 3rd place in the central committee election, constituted by the heads of the local government such as the members of the National Assembly, mayors, and governors. It was a moment of hope for young partisans. “One of the members of the central committee was very surprised at how I received such a large number of votes. In fact, he voted for me too but was 100% sure it was a wasted vote. He said he got lots of calls from young people asking him to vote for me. It is natural that he may not know what kind of young person I am because I have limited experience in politics. Nevertheless, he kept receiving calls from young partisans. He said he voted because he thought there would be a reason for it but could not expect how the result would turn out.” There were crises of changing the affiliated party to the Democratic Party of Korea and getting laid behind as the 16th in number on central committee, but in the end, he entered the 21st National Assembly due to the votes of numerous citizens. His election could be said as the result of efforts his seniors put in for a long time to make the 2030 National Assembly and the hopes of young people to build a National Assembly that can sympathize with them. ▲ Deputy Jeon Yong-ki had a leading role as the ERICA student body president in successfully drawing a consensus on "Prime Business 21," which had strong opposition due to department consolidation problems. A bigger world! Hanyang University, a life turning-point Alumnus Jeon Yong-ki (Division of Sport Science, Class of ’10) was a disciplined young man during his student years who put forth his best efforts in every aspect. As he was a bowler during his middle and high school years, he entered university as a student-athlete. The reason why he chose Hanyang University was to tie in his studies. “I made a promise to myself that when I went to university that I would not skip any lectures. Even if I was sick or drank a lot the day before, I always attended classes. I tried not to be absent even if I had to fall asleep during the class.” Because he studied diligently, he naturally received high grades and graduated 2nd in his class. His participation in the student council started after his service in the military. It was not that he was thinking of joining the student council from the beginning. In fact, he was running away with excuses to his seniors that suggested he participate. However, he could not find any more excuses when he realized that he could both study and hold office. As he has a personality of enjoying meeting people and not being able to stand it if things do not get done, he worked like a workaholic. After starting as a member of the student council, his role extended to the Department of Sports student vice-president, College of Sports and Arts student president, and then ERICA student body president in no time. ▲ Photo of "Prime Business 21" student body council His most memorable activities as the 34th ERICA student body president in 2016 are the prime business and the reformation of festival cultures. At that time, the opposing opinions of the prime business were strong due to the problems of department consolidation. For that reason, he thought there needed to be an opportunity for students to fully understand the necessity of the business and judge rationally. As a result, 1,300 students voted through the student council and 38.7% voted in favor. It was selected as the representative case of creating the best legislative organization that takes in the voices of students and derives a representative democracy. At that time, ERICA was the only university that presented a successful agreement and passed their evaluation with full marks on the "consensus with members" section. The transition from hosting festivals in Democracy Square for the last 30 years to the track and field was another unconventional move. “There were always problems with safety accidents as Democracy Square was too small. Therefore, we changed the festival location to the track and field. There were lots of disagreements, but we managed to persuade the doubters one by one.” The story of building waterways on the track and field floor by using a shovel with the members of the student council in heavy rain is famous. From that day, it has become a tradition to make waterways during the festival when it rains. “For me, Hanyang University is my life turning-point. I could finally realize how big the world is after coming to university. I built diverse things with friends from all backgrounds and got to see new worlds by meeting students from other departments. If I had not joined the student council or spoken up to society, I would have lived a life far from politics.” ▲ Alumnus Jeon Yong-ki (Division of Sport Sciences, Class of ’10) Anticipating the work of a young, generation-representing politician Deputy Jeon Yong-ki entered graduate school (Management Consulting, Class of ’17) after graduating in 2017 and made his mark on politics by playing the role as of the Democratic Party of Korea's 19th Presidential Election National Election Commission Youth Committee Director of Future Generation Joint Headquarters. After that, he worked as a Youth Policy Board researcher, National University Student Committee vice-president, and then president. After stepping into the National Assembly, he spoke of the New Politics. This means to approach politics from a new perspective. Many worry about his inexperience when looking at his relatively short time in politics, but thoughts do differ according to the generations. “I think there are limits to solving youth problems through the lenses of the older generations. When solving a problem, the right answer can come when solving it from a diverse perspective. That is the reason why there needs to be politicians who can represent different generations. Looking at the big picture, I want to be a politician that protects minorities. However, as of now, I want to try solving difficult situations that our generation is facing as a youth politician that stands with a generation-representativeness.” He defines politics as life. He says that the life of meeting people, connecting with others, and speaking for other people is politics. “I hope people’s awareness of politics can change. I hope people can learn the method of discussion and persuasion through politics. If that is achieved, healthy life politics like those of Northern Europe will be possible.” He is still cautious due to the responsibility to do well as a new member of the National Assembly, but Deputy Jeon Yong-ki speaks of his aspirations to carry out bold and reformative assembly activities. He is expected to grow into a passionate and challenging icon that is told “the young do things well as expected,” speaks for minorities as a young politician, and becomes a role-model for their juniors in school.

[Faculty][ERICA’s Power]Department of Transportation and Logistics Engineering Professor Lee Gun-woo, who Returns to His Alma

From student to professor! Transportation expert returns to his university Professor Lee Gun-woo in the Department of Transportation and Logistics (Department of Transportation Engineering, Class of '96) Professor Lee Gun-woo, who was appointed at the beginning of the year as a professor in the College of Engineering Sciences' Department of Transportation and Logistics, set out for a new challenge. He has come back to his alma mater, where he spent his college years actively participating in school clubs and the student council, as a professor. Let’s meet Professor Lee, who says that he will be faithful to education and research by maintaining communication with students at his alma mater. ▲ Professor Lee Gun-woo in the Department of Transportation and Logistics Engineering (Department of Transportation Engineering, Class of '96) Looking forward to meeting his students as his juniors and as pupils Professor Lee Gun-woo, who was appointed last March is an alumnus of the ERICA Department of Transportation Engineering, class of '96. After graduating from MIT and finishing his studies at the University of California, Irvine, he has been responsible for research in shipping, harbors, and international distribution for five years at the Korea Maritime Institute (KMI). In 2007, he worked as a professor in Chung-ang University's Department of International Logistics and came back to his alma mater this year as a professor in ERICA's Department of Transportation and Logistics Engineering. “The Department of International Logistics is affiliated with the College of Business and Economics, which has economics as its base. Because my academic background is in engineering, there were some disparities. There have been limits to practicing 100% of what I have studied until now. Just in time, I was able to transfer thanks to a request from my alma mater, Hanyang University.” His goals are unique as it is his first year working as a professor at his former school. Although working at the university he graduated from feels comfortable, there is more pressure from the thought of needing to lead his students, who are both his juniors in school and his pupils. Unfortunately, however, he is not yet able to have face-to-face classes with his students due to COVID-19. Even though his teaching is being done online, he simultaneously felt both comfort and anxiety when conducting his first lecture. “I could not foresee to what extent students would be able to follow along. There was also the problem of online lectures. The saddest thing is that I do not get to meet the students. It is unfortunate that I cannot meet them in person, communicate with them, get feedback on what they do not understand, and help them understand better. After all, there are limits to listening to what students think through email and phone calls.” The preparation process for online lectures is also quite burdensome. It takes about twice as long to prepare materials, record the lectures, edit, and upload them. There are sometimes situations when errors occur, such as his voice not being heard due to microphone errors. While this is not familiar work, he is gradually adapting to it through trial and error. ▲ Professor Lee Gun-woo is leading a research project in Transportation and Green Logistics through the Sustainable Transportation and Logistics Laboratory Concentrating on sustainable transportation environment and green logistics Hanyang University's Department of Transportation Engineering was first established in Korea in 1988. The pride of the alumni are so great as well. It was reorganized into the current Department of Transportation and Logistics Engineering by emphasizing the role of logistics in 2012. The subject which Professor Lee Gun-woo teaches is in the field of logistics. Similar to transportation, logistics has multidisciplinary characteristics. Perspectives change according to the point of view. In humanities logistics expands on the basis of trade, and in industral engineering and transportation engineering it expands into the field of engineering. Professor Lee is lecturing in the current department on "Transportation Logistics Economics" and "Sustainable Transportation and Green Logistics" in graduate school. From the second semester, he will provide lectures on "Logistics Management Engineering," "Logistics Systems Design," and "Special Lectures on Logistics." In the "Sustainable Transportation and Logistics Laboratory" that he is operating, students conduct research on the transportation environment and green logistics. Public health research includes atmosphere pollution emission estimation research, atmosphere diffusion analysis research, research on the effects of air pollution on humans, public convenience and ripple effects of transportation management techniques, and transportation logistics eco-friendly policies. It also includes effect analysis research on the introduction of new technology in the transportation and logistics field, such as eco-friendly transportation systems like electric cars and autonomous vehicles. According to Professor Lee, “It is research favored by the public but not government officials or businesses.” However, the interest and importance of this field will increase as international societies emphasizing eco-friendliness such as green-house gas reduction. Professor Lee’s most memorable achievement among all his research is receiving the Pyke-Johnson Award which is awarded in the transportation planning and environmental field as one of the five academic awards givem by the US Transportation Research Board. At the end of his PH.D program in 2010, he was awarded for his first SCI paper. He said that “it was the result of the help of Professor Stephen G. Richie who led his doctoral program, an excellent education provided by the department professors, and his fellow colleagues who participated in the doctoral program.” The Pyke-Johnson Award is the oldest award and has the highest authority in the transportation field, which can even be called an honor to one’s family. At that time, his award became a big issue in his college because it was the first award in the 30 years in the department. ▲ Professor Lee Gun-woo, who set his first step as a professor, senior, and teacher this year in ERICA showed his unique goal Educating the right expert with skill and humanity The changes to the ERICA Campus are truly amazing compared to when he first came to the school 24 years ago. To a great extent, the changes could be called "convulsions of nature." Professor Lee was amazed at the scenery and said, “The campus landscape is well organized, with many new buildings,” and that he "can feel the school’s enormous development in my skin.” Then, what was his most memorable experience when looking back at his college years? He choses "treet cafes" as the answer. The first words of his colleagues was the same when they heard he was appointed as a professor at his alma. “It has become a memory that I cannot forget now. When I was in school, there were lots of potholes on concrete pavers in front of the main entrance because it was a time when school peripheries were not yet developed. There, we collected branches and made campfires. Then we drank, sang, and debated with colleagues and our seniors.” One strength of Hanyang members that he has experienced and observed is their diligence. There is a tendency to overcome difficulties instead of running away from them. This is one of the reasons why numerous alumni are actively working in unimaginable fields all over the world. What he emphasizes to his students as their school senior and as their professor is humanity. Professor Lee underscores that he wishes "to educate proper experts with great humanity” and that “one can be responsible for their position if they were told that they have a great capacity for humanity.” That is why he helps students with etiquette and manners that are needed in social lives such as writing emails that do not convey rudeness. “Sometimes, I receive two-line emails without indicating one’s identity like sending a text message. Most of the time, it would be the case that students do not know how, but in real society that should not be done. In the past, I have shown students' emails as examples of etiquette. Since then, the students’ emails have changed. I try to teach these small but important factors to students whenever I have time.” He plans to talk more about students’ future careers. That is because of what his professor told him was of great help when he was a university student. “I want students to have their own dreams. While in university, I want them to find what they like and live a life that does not make them give up their dream.” Professor Lee highlights that he will be more faithful to education and research as a new professor. He plans on making opportunities to contribute to society when professional advice or an opinion on the transportation and logistics field is needed. We look forward to his future achievements and are cheering for his new start at his alma mater.

[Faculty][ERICA's Innovation] A Healthy Society Comes from Healthy Communication, Professor Lee Byung-kwan, Department of Advertising & Public Relations

A healthy society comes from health communication, Professor Lee Byung-kwan, Department of Advertising & Public Relations The world is going through chaos because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In times like this, accurate communication is essential. Professor Lee Byung-kwan, a first-generation health communication researcher in Korea, warned that it would be difficult to overcome the crisis if rapid and active communication is not conducted. ▲Professor Lee Byung-kwan, Department of Advertising & Public Relations WIth COVID-19, what is the role of communication? The Wall Street Journal highlighted Jeong Eun-kyung's consistent honesty, information-based analysis, and composure as powerful calmatives for Koreans. Professor Lee Byung-kwan, a health communication expert, gave a positive assessment from a different perspective. "Epidemiologists and medical professionals tend to only deliver the threats of diseases scientifically and objectively. However, the public cares more about the dangers that they present to individuals and their families. Unlike previous infectious diseases, they have fully understood the needs of the public and have been conveying information that the public is curious about." Having said this, Professor Lee praised the quarantine authorities for giving briefings every single day since the outbreak of COVID-19. Delivery of accurate information is important to prevent the public from being biased against fake news. This phenomenon is called the "Negative Dominance Model." "During a pandemic, the government should manage two things at the same time. One is quarantine, and the other is the delivery of accurate information via communication. Otherwise, the public will overestimate the threat and get anxious. On the contrary, they may underestimate the threat and react negligently." A very good example of social panic occured during the MERS and swine flu outbreaks. Fake news that spreads excessive fear and anxiety during a pandemic is another virus that needs to be eradicated. ▲ Professor Lee Byung-kwan is putting forth efforts to strengthen students' abilities to foster sincere social skills Building a Platform to Discuss Domestic Health Communication Professor Lee Byung-kwan's research field is health communication. It is the field of exploring communication strategies to enhance the health of our society. In other words, it is a field of communication that "provides information", " influences others", "provides motivation", as well as "reflects attitude and behavior", and "strengthens competence" in relation to the health of individuals and society. There are many topics that directly relate to the health of individuals and society, such as treatments and responses to problems like AIDS, obesity, drunk-driving, dating violence, smoking, and so on. Politics and medical and pharmaceutical industries are also included. Although the research field is diverse, we are able to see that all these topics are closely related to our lives. Over the past decade, the importance of health communication has been increasing alongside diseases like swine flu and MERS. However, ten years ago, Korea did not have a platform for health communication. In fact, Professor Lee Byungkwan was only able to encounter the field of health communication when he was in America for further studies but did not pay much attention to it. However, he got interested in this field while conducting research on AIDS and family planning campaigns in Africa with his advisor. For this, he is very grateful to his advisor. ▲What is Health Communication? "The good thing about health communication research is that the subject and target of the study are not abstract. They are real and clear. I also have a little sense of pride that I am able to help in solving health-related problems." After returning to Korea, Lee, together with other professors, started a Health Communication Research Association which later became an official academic association in 2009 with Lee serving as the first Chairman. He also received a commendation for serving as an advisor to the AIDS/Tuberculosis Advisory Committee from the Disease Control and Prevention Center. Professor Lee Byung-kwan's field of interest is the evaluation of the effectiveness of various disease-related campaigns. Holding campaigns is important but calculating the impact of these campaigns is equally important. Last year, Lee offered a solution to measure the actual impact for a tuberculosis campaign which required the largest budget in Korea after smoking. "To measure the effectiveness of the campaign, we need to measure the behavior changes before and after exposure to the campaign. However, our daily routines are uncontrolled, which makes it difficult to assess the changes accurately. Hence, these methodological limitations should be overcome by statistical algorithms for more accurate results. The recent research studies have reflected this interest." In relation to this, Professor Lee published an evaluation of the tuberculosis campaign impact in one of the medical journals called the International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease. Currently, Professor Lee is carrying out a research study on Bayesian structural time-series mode algorithms to measure the impact anti-smoking campaigns have had over the last 5 years. ▲Professor Lee Byung-kwan, who served as the first president of the Korea Health Communication Association, is being credited for leading the development of health communication in Korea. Finding worth in the community Professor Lee Byung-kwan worked as a member of National Committee in Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response in 2015 when MERS broke out and paid close attention to live social media messages. At that time, Lee was establishing a system to monitor social media data in real-time by using machine learning techniques when MERS broke out, giving Professor Lee the chance to help prevent the spread of MERS while collecting and analyzing the public's opinion at the same time. He also advised the Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response team to monitor social media data steadily during the outbreak of COVID-19. As such, Professor Lee showed interest in data science that uses machine learning or AI as a method to study health communication. "Students who study social science tend to think that they are not real 'scientists,' but social science requires a scientific approach to explain social phenomena. Therefore, I always oppose arguments that are abstract and emphasize that students think theoretically with evidence." Professor Lee mentioned that studying health communication makes him naturally interested in medical services. He conducted an Industry Coupled Problem Based Learning (IC-PBL) project at Ansan Medical Welfare Social Cooperative last year. From conducting cooperative and community health communication cooperation classes with students, innovative ideas were found. To contricute to the community, Lee plans to create an "Ansan City Health Map" that provides health indicators for local members in Ansan.

[Faculty][ERICA’s Keyword] Ranked 6th in the World Among Experts in the Field of Marine Biomedical Research, Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering Chair-professor Kim Se-kwon

Continuous and passionate steps of the 6th ranked expert in the field of marine biomedical research Professor Kim Se-kwon of the Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering “There is nothing in this world that is achieved without pain. It is sometimes painful to achieve answers to certain things like studying, research, and work, but your efforts will eventually bear fruit if you concentrate with passion.” Professor Kim Se-kwon was awarded the International Scientist Award at the 33rd International Khwarizmi Awards Ceremony this year, which centers around world-class scientists. He was also selected as the 6th ranked expert in the field of marine biomedical research from the US medical field research paper evaluation organization. Let's think about what passion is through the story of Professor Kim Se-kwon, who is gaining worldwide recognition for his expertise and influence. ▲ Hanyang University ERICA Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering Chair-professor Kim Se-kwon Q1. As the chair-professor of Hanyang University ERICA's Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering, in which classes do you meet students? A1. The Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering deals with understanding and preserving future Earth environmental changes and the fast-changing characteristics of the marine environment in response to the national advancement of marine development-related technologies. I've decided to give two lectures to freshmen this year. The topic of the first lecture is "Know the ocean to see the future: Marine living resources that bring money from the 4th industrial revolution" and the second lecture is "Healthcare utilizing marine biological resources." I've also had presentation and debate sessions with graduate school students on the topic of "Exploring and developing physiologic substances from marine biological resources." Q2. Over the past 10 years you have published about 200 research papers regarding marine organisms in SCI-level international journals. What have you been researching about marine organisms? A2. In China, there is an antique pharmaceutical book called Chinese Herbal Medicine (華本草, 13 volumes) that is similar to Korea's Dong-uibogam. This book deals with biological resources, descriptions, and effects that have been used as medicines in China, and it identifies about 200 marine organisms that were used as medicines 500 years ago. However, because of the abrupt development of medical plant domestication technologies, fewer than 10 marine organism species are currently being used. I published a book called Marine Organisms and Herbal Medicine based on the information on the marine organisms that were written about as medicinal herbs in Chinese Herbal Medicine. Moreover, Korea imports most herbal medicinal materials from China, but it was revealed that their pesticide pollution is very serious. This is why I started research into creating herbal medicine materials(bio new medicine) from marine waters, which exists in our sea and is an untapped resource. I mostly examined the vitality by separating new natural materials from marine organisms, disclosed their structures, and sought to discover their application methods by realizing the effect mechanisms. As a result, I could discover diverse vitalizations such as anticancer, anti-aging, anti-allergy, anti-dementia, antidiabetes, and antihypertensive uses. Q3. You received an International Scientist Award at the 33rd International Khwarizimi Awards in February and also the 2019 Best Paper Award at the world-class journal in marine biomedical sciences field Marine Drugs. A3. The International Khwarizimi Award is an award that was established by the Iranian government in 1987 in honor of Muhammad Ibn-Musa al-Khwarizmi (770-840 CE), the first Persian mathematician and astronomer to establish the concept of algebra. It is an international award that selects award-winning journals of science and technology through the support of diverse international organizations such as UNESCO. A professor at the Iran Institute of Science and Technology read some of my research papers, became interested, and nominated me for a Khwarizmi Award. I did not expect to be awarded but was given the pleasure of winning the award. Different from other winners, I had other 4-day award schedules. So, I participated in invited lectures at the Iran Institute of Science and Technology and the Iran Institute of Ocean Science and Technology. Also, I was asked to give an advisory opinion by the SAFF Offshore Industries Company and discuss mutual cooperation methods. The reason why I received the Best Paper Award from Marine Drugs was due to the review paper that suggested the possibility of utilizing protein and peptides in the processing of residues that are thrown away after marine products are processed as functional cosmetic materials. I am aware that I was selected as the winner because the paper quotation rate was high worldwide. I am happy that I am gaining international recognition for the efforts I have made and results that I have found. Q4. Was there a special reason why you became interested in the marine bio-field? A4. In the ocean, there are about 300,000 species that amount to 80% of all animal species on earth, but more than 96% are unused resources. Some maritime states that are close to the ocean, along with some developed countries, are showing a trend of shifting the subjects of biomaterial development from land resources to unused marine animals. Korea, which is surrounded on three sides by ocean and holds maritime jurisdiction that is 4.5 times larger than its territory, has abundant maritime resources, but unfortunately is not using them properly. About 40 years ago when I started my research, only a scarce amount of resources such as fish and marine algae (seaweed, laver, kelp) were used as food sources, and other living marine resources were not used. There wasn't even basic research being conducted on marine organisms. Therefore, I established the Marine Biochemistry Research Laboratory and progressed with research in order to effectively use living marine organisms. Since then I have explored numerous marine organisms for new functional substances and disclosed their functions. Such research must be undertaken to utilize living marine organisms in diverse ways. Since systemic research through biotechnology is in an insufficient state, much pain and effort were required to overcome this problem. ▲ Professor Kim Se-kwon was awarded the International Scientist Award at the 33rd International Khwarizimi Awards Ceremony this year and was ranked 6th among world-class experts in the marine biomedical field by the US medical field research paper evaluation organization. Q5. You were selected 5 years in a row as the Highly Cited Researchers(HCR) in the world by the Global Academic Information Enterprise and were selected last May as the 6th (Top 0.0075%) highest ranking world-class expert in the biomedical sciences field by the US medical field research paper evaluation organization. A5. I have spent time as a professor with three obligations in my mind as a scholar. First, to teach students well, second, performing creative research, and third, providing help to humanity with research outcomes. I have never considered myself an extraordinary person. Therefore, I thought I should put forth a lot of effort as I do not have enough capabilities. I have received good results by doing my best and being focused on my work. Q6. You have published about 40 professional books in English regarding the marine bio field. A6. When I was a visiting professor at Memorial University in Canada in 1999, I came to know a professor who had published about 60 books as an editor and works worldwide. I once suggested we publish a book in my field as joint-editors, but unfortunately this wasn't achieved. So, after a lot of thinking, I decided to publish on my own. Luckily, I had experience evaluating many publication plans for foreign publishers, thus could publish my first English professional books in the CRC Press, which is a famous publisher in the US. This gave me confidence, which let me publish more than 40 books after receiving publication requests from many publishers. Q7. You have strived with ongoing passion in research, paper presentation, and book publishing. Do you have your own special know-how? A7. I have made more efforts and focused on my work than any other by constantly thinking about my lack of abilities. Because of this, I gained confidence and built an attitude to try out anything with confidence. In fact, it takes a lot of courage from people with degrees in Korea to publish English professional papers. Regardless, I eventually did it. I don’t think there is a special know-how in anything. Q8. Do you think marine convergence engineering and the marine bio field will play a big role in future society? A8. There needs to be a collective scientific approach in order to manage the ocean environment, protect marine resources, and use them valuably for humanity. Therefore, marine convergence engineering will be of more importance in the future. Moreover, in the case of Korea, which is surrounded on three sides by ocean, the marine bio field that uses marine living organisms will grow into a new power industry for the nation. Q9. Do you have anything to say about passion to ERICA members and young researchers? A9. I remember the four elements of happiness that contemporary people must hold, suggested by one author. One, language studies, two, building academic knowledge, three, playing instruments, and four, enjoying sports. When looking closely at these four elements of happiness, they all require pain and passion in order to be achieved. It reminds us of "no pain, no gain." Although there will be painful aspects to researching, working, and trying to find answers, the time you get to feel happy will come faster if you focus on your work with passion. Now, diverse opportunities for growth will come in technologically innovative businesses along with the 4th industrial revolution. In technical innovation, creative research is necessary. So, you must put passion into developing your creative research capabilities. That will be the key to solving your worries about employment or startups. ▲ ‘2019 Best Paper Awards’ by Marine Drugs Chair-professor Kim Se-kwon and marine biomedical sciences Marine biomedical sciences is a field that explores medical usability of physiologic abilities of marine living organisms. Professor Kim Se-kwon, who is a world-renowned marine biomedical expert, continued his research on disclosing the various effects of marine living organisms in fields such as anticancer, anti-aging, anti-dementia, anti-obesity, and anti-diabetes. He recently received the 2019 Best Paper Awards from the global journal Marine Drugs.
