[Faculty][HY's Excellence] The World’s Top 1% Researcher Builds a Scientific Basis for Ultimate Air Quality Improvement

Professor Ki-Hyun Kim is a leading pioneer in the field of environmental engineering and has been researching environmental management for more than 30 years. He has been listed as the ‘2019 Highly Cited Researcher (HCR)’ in November 2019 by Clarivate Analytics, a global academic information company. From around 60 countries, 6,216 researchers were selected as the HCR. Professor Kim is a world-class engineering researcher who has been building the scientific basis to make advanced monitoring tools for various environmental pollution phenomena in air, water, and soil and to develop control techniques for such pollution based on material engineering and related techniques. Professor Kim has written more than 700 papers in peer-reviewed international journals so far. He has been developing various detection/sensing tools to monitor pollution in the atmospheric environment with special emphasis on volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odor, fine dust, and third-hand smoke. He has also been actively conducting research on the synthesis of advanced functional materials as adsorbents and/or catalysts to effectively eliminate pollutants in air. As such, Professor Kim’s research has been extended to cover various fields of environmental engineering by interfacing with material engineering to help open a new path for the effective control on air pollution. “When you conduct research for a long time, your interests may change along with people’s demands. My main area of research these days is how to make advanced functional materials that can clean the air.” Professor Kim focuses on developing new materials such as the metal-organic framework (MOF) to efficiently and effectively control and manage diverse forms of VOCs and odor compounds. Beyond the existing techniques for monitoring or analysis, his work is focusing on the upscaling of the methodology for the real-world applications. Among these goals, Professor Kim is focusing on a substance called formaldehyde, which is considered one of the hard-to-treat harmful components in the air by the common techniques like adsorption or catalysis under highly dynamic conditions like the operation of air purification system. To treat such pollutants efficiently, he is constructing technical guidelines by properly evaluating the performance of various materials. As part of my extra-curricular research, I am focusing on the effect of environmental smoking with respect to both the second hand smoking (indirect inhalation of cigarette smoke from a nearby smoker) as well as the third-hand smoking (the slow desorption of smoke components after the smoking). Likewise, he also studies various issues related to the fine dust problem which has caused constant fear and discomfort, as it became a serious social problem these days. To solve these problems, he is deepening the research from finding out the causes of problem and their solutions such as air purification technology. Even if you have found the cause and its solution, it is difficult to actually commercialize it. There are many factors involved, such as supply and demand, delicacy in upscaling the production process, and the cost. Ultimately, I hope to go beyond all of these limitations to offer a better solution for air filtration technology to improve the quality of our life. Professor Kim, who is most interested in interfacing materials-based control technology with air purification technology, has been challenging new academic fields whenever he found the need for a new breakthrough for the advancement. He has been making outstanding contributions to enhancing the quality of life for people as a top-notch engineer. Further, he is serving as a generation-leading researcher by converging high-end materials for the environmental remediation. Careers (Careers after Ph.

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] The best researcher that defines the future of tourism as an interdisciplinary study

Professor Sunghyup Sean Hyun is pioneering the field of “Neo-fusion Tourism” that presents a new paradigm in tourism. He has been studying tourism for nearly 20 years and has published numerous studies on airline, cruises and the convention industry, which are the main features of the tourism industry. He has conducted many comprehensive studies of the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the tourism industry, including the factors of psychological anxiety experienced by flight attendants, the psychological situation of cruise passengers and expectations of others, the establishment of convention centers for the city branding strategy of MICE (Meeting, Incentives, Convention, Exhibition) and the analysis of the luxury tourism market. Throughout 20 years of research and more than 330 tourism studies (SSCI /KCI journals) conducted, he thoughts it was time to present a new paradigm for tourism. "It has been an ongoing concern of mine that focusing only on the major fields of tourism, such as conventions, or airline, and withholding the convergence of other disciplines would limit the synergistic effect. The ultimate goal of our research is to ensure that tourism contributes to the development of society, and a moment of realization occurred that studying pure tourism alone would only constrict us more.” As Professor Hyun contemplated on how tourism can have a greater impact to influence social development, he took note of the medical and the environmental aspects of tourism. “First of all, medicine is the study of the phases of human life from birth, aging, sickness, and death. If tourism can demonstrate the synergistic effect in medical development, the versatility of tourism can be acknowledged to society. In the field of medicine, I studied psychoanalysis, particularly in depression, in conjunction with tourism. Drugs are used to treat depression, and I thought tourism can be possibly approached differently. Namely, through the treatment of depression through travel.” An analysis of 367 American adult men and women (based on an online tourism community) revealed that the more active communication occurs, the more people’s effect of the three types of loneliness (social loneliness, family loneliness, and romantic loneliness) decreases, which leads to a lower depression index. Professor Hyun's research goes further by integrating social psychology’s “set point” theory to find ways to make traveling a good long term method to treat depression in a semi-permanent way. It has been shown that if tourism studies provide a new direction for psychotherapy, it can greatly contribute to the increase of the human happiness index as well as economic growth. In other words, by adding tourism therapy treatment methods along with the drug treatment techniques from medicine, the medical and tourism field will build on together and contribute to social development and happiness. This is what Professor Hyun’s "Nep-fusion Tourism " represents. Another neo-fusion tourism field that Professor Hyun has called attention to is the integration between the environment and tourism. Professor Hyun says that environmental problems, such as fine dust and environmental pollution, must be solved by tourism for people’s happiness and their well-being. Hyun said, “We researched the degree of ignorance of environmental awareness where tourists have no connections towards the environment and how to overcome this problem.” Based on the result of surveying 321 tourists for three years, Professor Hyun divided the factors on how to extend tourists' consistent responsibility for environmental protection that has no relevance towards the environment into five categories. Among them, he discovered that 'Recognition of Environmental Value' is the most important category, and further research is continuously being conducted regarding this category. If the following results create a policy to go into effect, this study can be a major component in drastically reducing the amount of fine dust/pollution. Tourism contributes to improve the quality of human life as an interdisciplinary study. This is the direction Professor Hyun's "Neo-fusion Tourism" lies ahead. Professor Hyun emphasizes that it is a researcher's job to be interested in an unchallenged path. “The goal is to build a strong identity of tourism as an interdisciplinary study by combining diverse fields of medicine, psychology, business administration, economics, engineering, etc. and to recognize the important role that tourism plays in society,” he stated. Despite the current tourism industry, which focuses only on high profitability, the future of tourism is secured by incorporating “Neo-fusion Tourism” established by professor Hyun.

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] Outstanding Environmentally-friendly Impact Evaluation Technology Research for Sustainable Architecture Development for the 21st Century

Professor Sungho Tae, the head of the Hanyang University Sustainable Building Research Center, is developing a commercializing program that deduces various environmental impacts on the global environment throughout the life cycle of building materials and buildings. Whole-step environmental evaluation programs such as the Sustainable Total Evaluation Program for Building (STEP-B) that Professor Tae’s lab has developed and the Sustainable Total Evaluation Program for Concrete (STEP-C) are in use as tools for eco-friendliness evaluation, and his lab is the only group that conducts such research in Korea. Professor Tae studied at Tokyo University as he was interested in high strength concrete, which is the main material for skyscrapers. Japan’s world-class environmentally friendly architectural material research’s provisions and values inspired him to study in this field. His environmentally friendly building performance evaluation and high-end technology research lab (suBest) is developing a “goal-oriented environmentally friendly optimal planning system” through a building’s environment load decreasing model and evaluation technology development. One of the most important aspects of eco-friendly building research is the evaluation of eco-friendliness in quantitative ways. STEP-B, which was developed by his research lab, evaluates the level of environmental friendliness of building processes such as greenhouse gas emissions, and STEP-C measures the environmental friendliness of concrete materials. There have been few scholars and papers studying such methodologies, and suBest is the only domestic research lab that has developed them as an industrial tool. The STEP-B program in particular is now being used to evaluate the environmental friendliness of architectural structures in G-SEED (a certificate system of Korea that is given to eco-friendly buildings). Professor Tae focuses on sustainable architecture which has evolved from green architecture. He was first introduced to Completely Recyclable Concrete at the materials research lab at Tokyo University. It allows concrete that is disused after the demolition of a building to be recycled and utilized as a new building material after decomposition. Recycling becomes possible, even for environmentally unfriendly aggregates, when they are coated during the construction phases. He was shocked to know that concrete can be considered an eco-friendly material as it is completely recyclable. After this epiphany, Professor Tae is now focusing on research that studies sustainable architecture and brings new ideas to Korean architecture. In the past, eco-friendly architecture was called various terms such as ecological building, green building, and environmentally symbiotic building. At the time, there was a tendency to think of eco-friendly architecture as simply coexisting with nature. If the past trend was to decrease energy use and the emission of greenhouse gases while using materials that are assimilated to nature, current sustainable architecture is a concept that harmonizes environmental, social, and economic factors of architecture. His focus is on forming a quantitative evaluation method to reach the target performance when making eco-friendly buildings and building materials. Also, it focuses on developing various eco-friendly building technologies that can evaluate and adjust environmental, social, and economic impact on the global environment in relation to the complete life-cycle including the production, use, and disuse of a building or of building materials, going beyond the past goal of lower energy-consuming technology development, through high-efficiency heating and cooling facilities and the application of high insulation/high density construction materials. Professor Tae has published more than sixty SCI-level papers. He received the Hanyang University Best Faculty Award (June 2019) as the excellence of his research was recognized, and his outcomes are evaluated so favorably that the has received the Best Dissertation Award from KOFST (June 2018) and the Minister’s award from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport (December 2014). Leading the technology commercialization, he registered an intellectual patent and his eco-friendly building and building material evaluation program was commercialized, and he is now putting much effort into transferring and providing technologies. Data gathering and analysis can be considered his core technologies as his research analyzes a vast amount of data and creates databases and evaluation methods. Therefore, he has requested active cooperation from scholars and researchers in the same field to contribute to society and to implement such technologies as national standards. In his lab there are not only Chinese students but also Swedish students who hail from the world’s most environment-focused country. His desire to become a true professional is evidenced by his studying throughout the course of his whole life, and he hopes his students become mature people who exercise professionalism in the service of humanity. Professor Tae was also honored with the Best Faculty Award as he received good reviews of his lectures from his students, and since he served as vice-chair of the Hanyang University Volunteer Corps and the chair of the Center for Students with Disabilities. 2016 ~ present Director of The Korean Society for Life cycle Assessment 2016 ~ present Associate Editor of International Journal of Sustainable Building Technology & Urban Development 2015 ~ present Director of Sustainable Building Research Center 2013 ~ present Expert member of Carbon Labeling Certification, Korea Environmental Industry and Technology Institute 2012 ~ present Director of International Sustainable Council 2010 ~ present Expert Member of ISO/Fairness Committee 2009 ~ present Expert Member of Industrial Standards Council (ISO TC 184/SC 5) 2008 ~ present Professor at Hanyang University Department of Architecture 2005 ~ 2008 Research Assistant Professor of Hanyang University Sustainable Building Research Center(ERC) 2002 ~ 2005 Doctor of Engineering / Tokyo University Graduate School College of Engineering Sciences (Japan) / Architectural Engineering 2000 ~ 2002 Master of Engineering / Tokyo University Graduate School College of Engineering Sciences (Japan) / Architectural Engineering 1992 ~1999 Bachelor of Engineering / Hanyang University College of Engineering Sciences (Korea) / Architectural Engineering Life Cycle Assessment(LCA) program for buildings : LCA program for buildings is a program that evaluates the impact on the environment during the life cycle stages of the building, which is applicable for quantitatively assessing the sustainable performance in the construction design stage, with the development of interconnected programs with domestic and international Green Building Rating Systems(G-SEED, LEED) LCA program and Life Cycle Inventory Database(LCI DB) for construction materials : LCA program for construction materials is a program that evaluates the environmental impacts occurred in the production life cycle level of construction materials, which allows drawing the environmental impact of the overall process of collecting raw materials to product manufacturing, and forming database of LCI DB of the evaluation information of building materials, thus providing the base data for architect LCA.

[Student]“Paving My Way and Future with Experiences” - An Interview of Students with Excellent Internship Results

The job market is becoming fiercer every day. Now it is time to compete with special experiences that nobody has. Here are individuals who have made their own stories from the field experiences of internship programs. These individuals are having their achievements acknowledged during their internship periods: Lee Yeong-ho (Division of Electrical Engineering Class of `13) and Kim Hyeon-seo (Department of Industrial Management Engineering Class of `14) got the Best Internship Award from Hyosung Power & Industrial Systems R&D Center and Ryu Tae-yeong (Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering Class of `15) received an award from Korea Rural Community Corporation. We met the three who got to have a big certainty through field experiences and awards. Q1. Your achievements were acknowledged by the corporations you worked in. How do you feel? Lee Yeong-ho (Electrical Engineering `13): I was not thinking of getting the award and did not expect it as well. I appreciate the award although there were people who were more hardworking than I am. Kim Hyeon-seo (Industrial Management Engineering `14): I did not expect the award. I guess the corporation had a good image of me as I tried my best until the end despite I found it hard to adapt in the beginning. Ryu Tae-yeong (Marine Science and Convergence Engineering `15): It is all thanks to Professor Shiin Seong-won who suggested the internship in the first place. I am happy about this but I also wonder if I am qualified for this award. Q2. What made you do an internship and with what criteria did you choose corporations? Lee Yeong-ho: After being a senior and started writing letters of self-introduction for job-seeking, I realized that I lack special experiences or stories, from the perspective of corporations. As I decided to have some field experiences before joining a company, I applied for the job sectors I was interested in. Electrical Engineering that I was interested in was the nearest to Hyosung Power & Industrial Systems R&D Center. Kim Hyeon-seo: Among my coursemates, there was a friend who did an internship at Hyosung. After listening to the story, my passion for the internship got bigger. In the phases of application, my friend actually cheered me a lot and gave me a lot of tips for application and interview. Ryu Tae-yeong: My professor recommended me for an internship. Although there were many other corporations other than the Korea Rural Community Corporation, I thought the work there would fit me best. The field is close to my subjects of interest and as the job is active, mainly science experiments, it fits well with my personality that cannot stay motionless. Ryu Tae-yeong received an award from the Korea Rural Community Corporation. Q3. Tell us about the department you worked in and your main tasks. Lee Yeong-ho: I was in the DC Grid team of Hyosung. It researches values to commercialize in the future industrial market and proves that the corporation has such technologies. We cooperated not only with research labs in many universities but also with other corporations. During undergraduate years, I just checked whether something works with a software tool, but I was able to experience the production and inventory. It is a process of making hardware. As I was interested in this sector, it became a meaningful experience. Kim Hyeon-seo: I was in the Technology Management team of Hyosung. It manages and plans research tasks, which are the most valued in the research lab. We not only value, manage, check, and pre-investigate the progress of tasks, but also deliver research tasks through contacting other companies and cooperating with universities. It is the center of the research lab. Through Hyosung’s original system, research tasks are under control. Ryu Tae-yeong: Korea Rural Community Corporation has the largest experiment lab in the East. A representative task is the Saemangeum Embankment project. We had a mock experiment under the request for repair. When my manager told me how to conduct the experiment, I did the experiment and delivered the result to researchers. They analyzed the results and numbers and students conducted experiments with technicians. Q4. What did you learn through the internship? Lee Yeong-ho: I tried to approach to elder seniors. Plus, I was able to experience the process - how works are done in a company. I also learned how to behave in different situations as it is my first time doing the job. My undergraduate knowledge was a background knowledge but active works, in the beginning, were hard. After I adapted to the atmosphere, it fits my interests and I could feel some joy while testing the products. It was attractive that the lab not only does tests and experiments but also has other business works such as meeting with other companies, meaning that there were various works. Kim Hyeon-seo: I learned a lot about interpersonal relationships. I approached my team members by asking for help and asking if there is anything to help because I have to work for a long time in the team. By using programs such as Excel and Powerpoint, my productivity and working capacity were increased. At first, I was astonished because of simple tasks but I tried my best to use my maximum capacity in parts that I can do. I even suggested a project to them. I guess I received the award since it worked out well. Ryu Tae-yeong: If you have set your goals firmly, working in the relevant field and company will be a great help for you when preparing for the job and after you get the job. I could learn professional knowledge from field experts, not from education in schools. This made a difference between me and competitors. Probably, an internship is an experience of social lives. Living a social life is not an easy thing but there surely will be someone to help you when you do your best by yourself. Those people are reliable people when you have hardships. Q5. Share us some words and tips for students preparing for an internship. Lee Yeong-ho: Many students are hesitant about an internship. They might take short-term internships into consideration when a long-term internship is burdensome. In the case of people who do not realize the situation of the current job market, experiences from an internship will raise your own value and make yourself to see your future path clearly. In selecting candidates by examining personal career papers, I think emphasizing my undergraduate lab internship and my organization-friendly personality meant a lot. Kim Hyeon-seo: Hanyang’s internship program is well-established and there is even a building for it. It is good to visit the center. You can get counseling and data about companies. I recommend you to get advice from friends who have done an internship. However, first of all, I strongly recommend you to apply for an internship when you feel the necessity for an internship by yourself so that you want to work in the actual field. Further, I tried to show my passion for the field of interest by pointing out my experiences of helping my professor during the undergraduate years in the resume and in the interview, I emphasized my ability to adapt to any environment. Ryu Tae-yeong: My professor who recommended me the internship have said what is more important than my GPA is ‘an attitude to work hard, without using tricks’. It is important to look up information about internships by yourself. When preparing for the internship, I stressed that I have a lot of interests since my major is relevant to the company’s main field. It became good merit to study in this department because works in the Korea Rural Community Corporation can be hard when they do not go along with your interest. In interviews, if you show a will to work hard with confidence, you can pass the process, so please try first of all without hesitating. Q6. What are your future plans and dreams? Lee Yeong-ho: I am preparing to get into a company with a job that I desire. I want to find work where I can show my true qualities. I hope that trying my best on the given work would help the society also. Kim Hyeon-seo: I am feeling pride in the fact that now there are many stories that I can tell after going through the field experience. I would like to work at a company where I can use my full qualities. Ryu Tae-yeong: I thought that it would be difficult before, but through this experience, I now have confidence that I will be able to get a job that fits my major 100%. This became an opportunity for me to decide to study harder. Hanyang University's field experience program, 'HY-WEB', provides students with the field experience related to one's major and an opportunity to search on one's career. Students who participate in the program go through short·long term training processes at a government organization, company, laboratory or nonprofit organization, which are organizations that fit the field experience requirements provided by the Ministry of Education, and are registered at the Center for Academic Placement Support. It is expected to give students the chance to improve their abilities regarding their majors through a clear selection of careers and various experiences, also enhancing their executive abilities in the end. The process is usually done through first submitting the documents through the website, holding interviews at each company, and making a final selection at the end. Global News Team

[Student]A Book for Exchange Students <Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea>

Kim So-yeon (Division of International Studies, senior) and Hong Do-won (Korea University, senior) published a book for students preparing for life as an exchange student titled Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea. The book deals with a wide range of areas starting from preparing to be an exchange student to what it is like to live around the local area. The book contains detailed information on life in the United Kingdom and Germany, as well as traveling to Europe, which is also useful to those planning of staying in Europe for a month or so. When the term 'exchange student' is searched for on a search engine, a vast amount of advice appears, starting from the application process to packing tips. Kim came up with the idea of the book, thinking that it would be helpful if there was someone that could gather this information and organize it all together. To Kim, the exchange student experience from last fall of 2018 was her first time living abroad. The information that she needed was neither the price nor the departure process, but on the culture and life of the people around the local area. Kim described the vagueness that she felt about living abroad, mentioning that "people post much information on personal blogs about preparing to be an exchange student, but not so much after leaving Korea." ▲ Kim So-yeon (Division of International Studies, senior) published a book on being an exchange student in the United Kingdom and Germany through crowdfunding. The funding reached more than 3 times its original goal. Kim started writing the book as soon as she began leaving as an exchange student. The hardships and new information that she faced were immediately recorded in the writing, which added specificity to the book. She also collected information on other areas of Europe, which she gained through traveling around the area herself. Kim stated that she "tried to include information that can be both applied to the United Kingdom and Germany," such as in, "how to buy products online when there is no supermarket around." Kim finished the first draft of the book last September, and, in the following month, a contract with a designer was made. While she was originally planning on only publishing an E-Book, she changed her plans after the recommendation from a designer who also worked as a one-person publisher. Because there is a fixed number of minimum prints, printing paperbacks comes with cost and risks. Kim explained that she "conducted crowdfunding simply to meet the printing cost, regardless of any extra profit." ▲ Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea is currently going through a second edition editing. Following sales on paperback and E-Book will be made through Aladin. (Provided by Kim So-yeon) Publishing paperback books does not stop on writing the book itself, including processes such as sales, delivery management, and marketing. For example, many thoughts were required when deciding the goods that come along with the crowdfunding rewards. Kim and her co-writer planned for a coin purse and a shopping bag that would come in handy when living in Europe, but after considering the minimum number of quantity of the customized products, they changed it to cups and postcards. Due to the characteristics of crowdfunding, the funding initiator has to make packages and deliver the products directly, not through signing a contract with an outside shipping company. This makes it difficult for them to track the delivery processes and costs. Kim mentioned that "there were some number of cases where the books were lost during the delivery process and sent again because we were not able to find them." Reactions from those who received the book were very positive. On a social network platform, many reviews followed, such as "it helped me greatly on reducing unnecessary packages." It reached the original goal starting from the first day of crowdfunding, reaching 309% of the accumulated amount of money by the end date. "I give thanks to my parents, the friends around me who offered help, the Office of International Affairs of Hanyang University, and all of the readers," mentioned Kim. She also added that "it would have been better if I had had more insights on the marketing." The book, Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea is currently going through a revision after its first edition and will soon be seen as an E-Book on Aladin.

[Student]Hanyang's Shakespeare from the Spring Literacy Contest

In the past, publishing was extremely difficult for a new author. To support them, Korea’s major newspapers held the spring literacy contest (신춘문예, Shinchunmunye) on the first of January each year since 1925, giving new writers a chance to publish their prize-winning entries and make their debut as a writer. Although private publication has become easier nowadays via SNS, the spring literacy contest still holds its status as the time-honored, formal gateway into literacy. This year, three Hanyangians, Shin Hye-yeong, Lim Ji-hoon, and Kim Ji-woo, earned the glory of winning the 2020 contest. Among them, Kim Ji-woo (Department of English Language and Literature, 4th year) won in the play category with Path at the early age of 24. Path, a play authored by Kim Ji-woo (Department of English Language and Literature, 4th year), won the spring literacy contest play category this year. Path is a short play in which two child characters, Mino and Ir go on a journey tied on a freight train from Mexico to America in search for a better life. Kim gained inspiration from a documentary she had seen eight years ago. The play was “raw,” described the judges, “as if the author was the actor herself moving on the stage,” and “has high literary potential,” even compared to ‘The Little Prince’ by Saint-Exupéry. Winning was unexpected for Kim as Path was her first-ever play work. “I’ve loved writing since I was a child but only recently decided to pursue the career as a writer. Even then, my goal was to become a musical writer. So Path was the first play that I wrote,” said Kim. However, Kim said she always liked watching plays and feeling their vivid atmosphere. “I watch two to six plays a month. Sometimes they would sell the script, so I would buy them and study.” Path is a story of two 15-year-old Mexican children heading to America by clinging onto a freight train. (Photo courtesy of TheSeoulShinmun) As the most memorable scene, the author picked the scene where the two children imagine a coyote which they have never seen. "The hypothesis behind the story is that imagination is the driving force of life. This particular scene delivered it very well," said Kim. "I also wanted to write the story somewhat vaguely. It was hard, but people who read the play gave me their different interpretations, which were fun and interesting." Path will be performed on stage around March and April, as part of the one-act play of the spring literacy contest prize-winning entries. Kim spoke of her aspiration as a now-formal writer that she has many ideas and stories that are waiting to become a play in the future. “I’m still quite dazed by the fact that my play won such an honorable contest. I will always aspire to become a better writer,” said Kim. Kim has many ideas and stories that she will turn into plays in the future. (Photo courtesy of Kim) Lim Ji-woo Photos by Lee Hyeon-seon

[Faculty]The Expedition to Living Knowledge

Mark Twain said that every person is a book, each year a chapter. People seek the meaning of life through their experiences. Here is Professor You Yeong-mahn (Department of Educational Technology), a knowledge ecologist who integrates people's experiences into new knowledge. Professor You Yeong-mahn (Department of Educational Technology) is a knowledge ecologist who integrates people's experiences into new knowledge. Communicating with the public You is well-known for his active communication with the public. You featured intermittently in television programs such as tvN’s No Way I’m an Adult and CBS’s Sebasi Talk. You delivers simple but permeating messages – such as tree (namu) does not blame (namurada) anyone. “There is a big difference between the role of a university lecturer and a public speaker,” said You. “The message should be concise and thought-provoking towards the public.” Knowledge ecology labels the general public as an agent of knowledge management. You's exposure to mass media is deeply related to knowledge ecology. You has published 88 books that meet the public interest. Besides, You posts a series of articles through social media where he interacts with his subscribers. You recently published Do Not Meet Someone Like This, which builds on his posts on Brunch, an SNS platform. It is a book that covers human relations. “What determines who I am is who I meet,” said You. “People should reflect on themselves before judging others.” You advises people to look back on themselves through Do Not Meet Someone Like This. (Photo courtesy of Namusaenggak) Curved rather than being straightforward You recalled his astonishment upon reading the comments on an article introducing Do Not Meet Someone Like This. “Some expressed mere anger and hostility without even reading the book,” said You. “What I found was a heartless atmosphere in society.” You referred to modern society as ‘straightforward,’ where you are faced with fierce competition. “People are demanded to aim further, work harder, and achieve faster,” explained You. “All that remains is emptiness.” You criticized current social conditions by citing Antoni Gaudi’s words, "The straight line belongs to men, the curved one to God." The knowledge ecologist proposed ‘curved’ values such as – diversity, harmony, and flexibility – as an alternative social discourse. “Curved values are enlightened through experience,” said You. The professor defined them as wisdom accumulated from continuous trial and error. They provide solutions to hardship with insights that hit the bull's-eye. Yoo suggested 'curved' values of – diversity, harmony, and flexibility – as an alternative to 'straightforward' social discourse. Experience as the source of creativity You recounted how his experiences led to creativity. “I helped my parents as a farmer, worked as a welder, and read books as a student,” said the knowledge ecologist. You said his experiences converged into a database. Along with extensive reading, it became a source of his unique content. You encouraged students of Hanyang to compile their database. “You need language to visualize what you think,” advised You. “There is no sense if you are in the absence of vocabulary.” The professor suggested that students read and behave. “Reading is rather physical labor than mental labor,” said You. “In order to master what you read, experience and reading should be done at the same time.” You highlighted the importance of experience as well as reading books. Some people say that a concept without experience is vain, and a thoughtless experience is dangerous. You is exploring the ecosystem of knowledge through his experience and interaction with the public. Oh Kyu-jin Photos by Kim Ju-eun

[Faculty]Hanyang University Professors Talk About Settling in Korea

Following Korea’s rapid development and increasing influence in international relations, the inflow of foreigners into Korea has increased greatly compared to the last two decades. Last year, there were over 2.3 million foreigners living in the country, and Hanyang University currently has around 3,000 international students studying in both campuses. Thanks to Korea’s leading industries, culture, safe environment and universities, more foreigners are taking an interest in prolonging their stay in the country. Two of the Hanyang University professors who have decided to make their stay in Korea long-term are Professor Krisda Chaemsaithong (Department of English Language and Literature) and Professor Michael William Brandon (Center for Creative Convergence Education). As of November 20th, Chaemsaithong has become a naturalized Korean citizen, while Brandon has acquired a marriage visa after marrying his Korean wife five years ago. Although the two Hanyang faculty members differentiate in status, they have both obtained the right to stay in Korea permanently. Professor Krisda Chaemsaithong (Department of English Language and Literature) has recently become a naturalized Korean citizen on November 20th. Chaemsaithong said practicality was one of his reasons for obtaining Korean citizenship. He has been living in Korea for seven years and has always fulfilled his duties. Apart from protecting one’s country, Chaemsaithong believed he was doing everything an ordinary Korean would do for their country, so he thought it was about time that he took the next step. In addition, as a professor of a university in Korea, obtaining citizenship would mean that he could represent his soon-to-be country. Thanks to the Korean government acknowledging his ‘outstanding talent,’ in addition to his highly educated background and numerous publications, Chaemsaithong was able to naturalize. Korea invites accomplished scholars from other countries to naturalize by offering a faster naturalization process than other methods. While the waiting list for regular naturalizations and naturalizations through marriage is longer and limits applicants to those who have lived in Korea from two to five years, foreigners with ‘outstanding talent’ can obtain Korean citizenship in just four months, which was how long Chaemsaithong had to wait to get his. Chaemsaithong went through three major steps during his naturalization process: applying for naturalization and submitting the required documents, the Ministry of Justice evaluating his case, and an interview session where he was tested on his knowledge of Korea. He also submitted a letter of recommendation written by Hanyang President Kim Woo-seung. The thesis papers he submitted had to be published no longer than five years in internationally recognized journals, which in his case, amounted to 25 thesis papers. Chaemsaithong poses with the textbook provided by the Ministry of Justice titled '나는 자랑스러운 한국인,' which translates to Korean into 'I am a proud Korean.' The last test was the actual interview, which included around 15 to 20 questions about Korean language, culture, history, law, and duties as a citizen, said Chaemsaithong. He added that the Ministry of Justice provided him with a textbook about the things he would be tested on, which he said was around the level of secondary school for Koreans and had many visual aids like cartoons and photos. The passing score is 60 percent. One question that he had difficulty answering was naming four Korean traditional holidays. “So, I said there is Seol (Korean New Year), and there is Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving), but I don’t know the other two,” said Chaemsaithong. “There is Dano (spring festival) and other things that didn’t get mentioned in this book, so I didn’t know that.” The final traditional holiday is Hansik, the 105th day after the winter solstice, which means cold food in Korean. Chaemsaithong was sworn in as a Korean citizen at an oath ceremony held in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi-do, on November 20th. (Photo courtesy of Chaemsaithong) Results came fast as Chaemsaithong said he received a call from a government employee the next day saying that he had passed. In mid-November, Chaemsaithong participated in his oath ceremony in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi-do. He swore an oath to do his duties as a Korean citizen with 14 other naturalizing foreigners. Professor Michael William Brandon (Center for Creative Convergence Education) talked about marriage, immigration, and life in Korea. On the other hand, Professor Michael William Brandon (Center for Creative Convergence Education) has gained the right to stay in Korea through marriage. Brandon is from the United Kingdom and has been living in Korea for over 10 years. He came to Korea with a working visa and later met his wife and has since acquired a marriage visa. As a foreigner, in order to make his marriage legal in both his native country and Korea, Brandon and his wife needed to get approval from both countries, a task that was challenging, as it needed to be done separately. The process requires a lot of paperwork, which needs to be prepared by both spouses in both native languages and issued by official offices of their home countries. In Brandon’s case, he had to visit the British Embassy, while his wife submitted her paperwork at a city hall. This procedure may cost a lot of money, as papers (a total of 11 required documents) needed to be translated to Korean by qualified transcribers acknowledged by the Korean government. After all the paperwork was submitted to both countries’ offices, the Korean counterpart sorted out the documents and legitimized the couple's marriage. “They are extremely clear about the documents you need to go through the procedure,” said Brandon. “It's an arduous task because the documentation process requires a lot of work. However, it was also easy because of the clarity involved in the process, so for that, I am quite grateful for both sides.” Brandon also added that, as immigration laws are fluid, people can accidently prepare outdated forms, which would have to be submitted again. “There are elements that I have been involved with living here in Korea where people have been more accommodating than I would have expected,” said Brandon. “That has made my ability to participate and engage with certain Korean aspects possible, and as a result, it has given me a little bit of feeling that I can also be living here, being part of the generation of elements of Korean culture as well.” Brandon currently lives with his wife and two children.

[Student]A Team of Hanyang University International Students Win Big in the LG Global Challenger

Hanyang University’s Begin (비긴) team was recently awarded the grand prize at the LG Global Challenger, an exhibition program and competition hosted by LG. “비긴,” which is a blend of both begin and vegan in English, is a four-person-all-international student team whose aim is to explore veganism in Korea. The team is made up of four students: Kejie Feng (Department of Mechanical Engineering, 4th year) from China, Julia Barlund (Department of Business Administration, 4th year) from Finland, Saira Tahsin (Department of Computer Software Engineering, 3rd year) from Bangladesh, and Nirmal Acharya (Department of Biomedical Engineering, 3rd year) from Nepal. (From Lef) Kejie Feng (Department of Mechanical Engineering, 4th year), Julia Barlund (Department of Business Administration, 4th year), Saira Tahsin (Department of Computer Software Engineering, 3rd year), and Nirmal Acharya (Department of Biomedical Engineering, 3rd year). Feng, who is the team’s leader, said that he met the members through clubs and school organizations. Having participated in the LG Global Challenger in 2018 with Barlund, Feng proposed that they enter, this time, with the goal to make a social impact. Each of the team members had a different goal in mind: air pollution, protecting the environment, health, and protecting animal rights. Combining their interests, the team decided to explore veganism. The team started its journey in May, which was when they had their interviews with LG. Since then, the team researched and presented their findings to the LG Global Challenger. In the end of August, the team went on an 11-day trip around Korea to explore veganism in Korea. Starting with Seoul, they expended their journey to Gyeonggi-do, Daejeon, and Jeju Island. The team visited several vegan restaurants, businesses and temples, and interviewed professors, CEOs, animal rights activists, and monks. They learned that there were many challenges for vegans in Korea. They mentioned how there were occasions where they had to eat a few chunks of meat during get-togethers, which the team believed is a type of social pressure that is an obstacle for practicing veganism in Korea. The challenge also expands to products as well, especially make-up. “If it’s a big brand, it is really hard to be vegan because, usually, if they sell those to China, they have to do animal testing,” said Barlund. “So, in order for a brand to be completely cruelty free, they have to be out of China, which is a big market, and it excludes a lot.” Team Begin traveled across Korea to explore veganism, experiencing firsthand life without meat. (Photo courtesy of Feng) The team experienced firsthand how hard it was to practice eating vegan during their journey as they tried to commit to all-out vegan eating habits. “There were no vegan restaurants,” said Acharya. “So, we ended up eating bibimbap for three, four days, continuously. That, of course, was quite hard because there are no varieties of menus for vegans.” Acharya added that there was an occasion, during a get-together with other LG Challenger teams at a restaurant, where the team could only eat cooked mushrooms. It is rare for regular restaurants to accommodate vegan dishes. Some team members have already taken the next step to promote veganism in Hanyang. Barlund, Tahsin, and Acharya are part of a group called HEAL (Hanyang Environmental Activism Leaders), which seeks to introduce vegan menus in the Hanyang cafeteria. Until now, vegetarians needed to either pack their food from home or ask for meats to be taken out of their meal. Barlund said she would eat kimbap with meat taken out, and Tahsin confessed that she ate mapo tofu, a Chinese style dish with spicy tofu, thinking it had no meat in it. Looks can be deceiving because it is sometimes hard to tell whether dishes are entirely meat-free, as meat can be dissolved in oils, broths, and seasoning. Some members of Begin have already taken their vegan mission to the next level. However, the team agreed amongst themselves that Korea certainly has potential for improvement. “I see the future very bright in Korea,” said Acharya. “Because Korea is good at catching on to trends that are going on in the world, especially in the Western world, I think that after some years, Korea will have the infrastructure which will provide vegan stuff for vegans.” As Grand Prize winners, all the team members are guaranteed internships at LG. Feng and Barlund said that they plan on doing their internships in April, while Acharya and Tahsin plan on doing theirs later. Jung Myung-suk Photos by Kim Ju-eun

[Faculty]Illuminating Dasan, an Innovative Thinker of the Joseon Dynasty

Dasan Jeong Yak-yong is considered one of the greatest thinkers in the late Joseon dynasty. Dasan -- a scholar and politician throughout the late 18th and early 19th century -- is well known for his pragmatic approach towards Confucianism, publishing highly influential works on philosophy, science, and theories of government. Illustrating Dasan's work is Professor Jung Min (Department of Korean Language and Literature), a scholar who has devoted his career to illuminate the values of Dasan and his publications. Professor Jung Min (Department of Korean Language and Literature) explores through the values of Dasan Jeong Yak-yong, one of the greatest thinkers of the Joseon dynasty. Jung recently completed publishing his series of Dasan Dokbon in Hankook Ilbo, which is a critical biography that takes a glimpse into Dasan's unknown life. “The articles cast light upon Dasan’s early years as a politician,” said Jung. “It was an age of turbulence following the breakdown of dominating Neo-Confucian values.” Jung portrayed Dasan as an ambitious intellectual who actively sought a breakthrough in social issues. Fortunately, Dasan received political support from King Jeong-jo, the reformist monarch who ruled Joseon in the late 18th century. Jung recently completed the Dasan Dokbon series and published it in book form. (Photo courtesy of Hankook Ilbo) Jung paid attention to Dasan’s approach to Catholicism throughout Dasan Dokbon. Unlike some scholars who see Dasan as a devout Catholic in his youth, Jung interpreted that Dasan regarded Catholicism as a field of study rather than a religion. “Dasan was deeply interested in the promotion of public welfare through science,” said Jung. “This is why he embraced Catholicism as a major ideological foundation of Western science.” Ironically, Catholicism is what forced Dasan out of his position, as it was counted as heresy by the ones with vested rights. Dasan was involved in the Catholic Persecution of 1801, and it ended his political career. Dasan was exiled to Gangjin, where he concentrated on his publications for 19 years. Jung plans to cover Dasan’s years of banishment through his further works. Jung claims that Dasan’s management of information will give out new insights to people living in modern society. “There is no Korean scholar who can surpass Dasan in the quantitative and qualitative richness in publications,” said Jung. “Dasan offered a new mechanism of processing voluminous information which is co-operated with his pupils.” Jung stated that Dasan’s competence as a data compiler will provide templates to which are required in the era of big data and collective intelligence. Jung sheds light on Dasan's role as a data compiler in his 19-year-banishment at Gangjin. Jung highlighted the importance of changing perspective. “Stereotypes prevent the emergence of new thoughts and ideas,” said Jung. “I tried not to confine myself to the traditional view on Dasan.” Jung’s humanistic insights to find connections with the society produced innovative results in his Dasan studies. As some people say, you can expect no influence if you are not susceptible to influence. Oh Kyu-jin Photos by Kim Ju-eun

[Student]A month Since Launching of Environmental Supporters, Deliberating the Path as an Environment Club

On September 25th, the campus was full of heat coming from the festival site. On one side of the Administration Building, a rather serious atmosphere was captured in contrast to the festive mood, as the ‘environment supporters’ was launched with the starting ceremony. The month of supporter students went by in no time, as they wore ‘PLASTIC FREE CAMPUS’ t-shirts and handed out tumblers to proceed with the environmental movement. Over a month has passed since its establishment, and we now have the opportunity to hear from the supporter students themselves. ▲Starting ceremony of environment supporters lasted until September 25th ▲ At the launching ceremony, President Kim Woo-seung explains the importance and role of environmental supporters. ▲ Members of the Environmental Supporters delivered their opinions on the environmental movement to the president and the student body at the launching ceremony. 1. Background on the creation of supporters Students who were interested in environmental issues from the ‘Major in Social Innovation’ gathered to launch an official organization. Two students who were taking the Changemaker's class this semester were working on a team project regarding the classroom environment, and we thought about continuing with the activity as we felt a sense of insufficiency to be limited to class. I think the gathering of friends who share the same intention created a more meaningful organization. 2. Reason for the existence of environment supporters It serves as a 'priming water' for more students to share and participate in environmental issues such as climate change. It is important to make sure that it doesn’t just stop with the simple act of thinking, but to the action that connects the thought. Environmental issues are a macroscopic subject, so many people seem to be unable to reach the skin. But if one by one, the ‘awareness’ changes, and, therefore, the ‘habits’ change, then small ‘changes’ will surely be realized. Our project will be a campaign for the student council to look back on the small things in the day-to-day lives of students in the school. After all, it's our goal to internalize the subject consciousness of the environment. ▲Supporter students are holding a plastic free campus campaign while giving out tumblers during the festival. ▲ Supporters students are taking part in the environmental action demonstration and sharing their opinions. 3. Activities after the starting ceremony We proceeded with the tumbler washer promotion activities first. Thankfully, students sympathized with and responded through the student council website. We interviewed the dustman and cleaners to create a card news, and it was this incident that we were able to get a closer look at the real state of environmental issues on campus. We also built a network of young people in connection with Big Wave, a youth climate organization, to participate in events related to climate change. Recently, we are devising a project that students can participate together with the basis on things they’ve studied. 4. Were there any difficulties? There were many difficulties, as it is the first official environmental club within the school. We deliberated on how to create many high quality projects, and held many data research activities and conferences. The conclusion that we came up with after thorough deliberation was that ‘we must study beforehand’. I think we can take part in environmental exercises as we learn more of better content. We are focusing on learning first to show how we are prepared. We anticipate that these things will act as important factors in creating a continuous and systematic organization after the second generation. ▲ Supporter students are holding an autonomous seminar while emphasizing the point that learning must be achieved as a prerequisite to put it into practice. 5. What we ask of Hanyang members The more we study, the more we realize the importance of members of Hanyang to recognize environmental issues as a real serious life problem, not just a campaign. Awareness and recognition is in desperate need. We want you to take that perception a step further and remember that just changing your little habits in life can reduce your carbon footprint and have a positive impact on the people around you. Although it may sound obvious, I expect that small changes in a person can lead to big changes. Although the first step is not far off yet, the students' willingness to study step by step in anticipation of a genuine change shows hope that Hanyang can become a truly eco-friendly campus. "I'm really happy to be with friends who sympathize with and strive to spread awareness on environmental issues," said Kim So-hee, who heads the team. She delivered her resolution to fiercely empathize and set an example in the near future. *Members of the Environmental supporters: Kim Gong-min (Department of Educational Technology 15), Kim So-hee (Division of International Studies 17), Kim Sin-gu (Department of Nuclear Engineering 13), Kim Young-woo (Department Of Political Science and International Studies 17), Byun Sun-jeong (Division of Tourism 17), Yoo Ah-hyung (Department of Media Communication 16).
