[Media Briefing][Seoul Economy Daily] President Kim Woo-seung, Interviews on University Innovation

On September 8th, Seoul News delivered an interview with Kim Woo-seung, the President of Hanyang University. The interview took place at the Office of the President of the Seoul Campus on the 7th, with President Kim sharing his vision on university innovation, industry-university cooperation, and start-ups. President Kim mentioned, "The attribute of a university is similar to the second rule of Newton,'F=mx a.' This is the rule of acceleration.In universities, because the professors hold some amount of mass (m) to refrain from changes, it is hard to create acceleration (a) for innovation without a substantial amount of force (F).However, COVID -19 is currently serving its role as a great force to bring changes.While there was an online lecture limit until last year, it was expanded to allow 99% of the undergraduate online lectures and 100% of graduate school online lectures." He also emphasized the importance of universities making a social impact, as much as the world university rankings. President Kim introduced the industry-university cooperation of Hanyang. He stated that the school is "conducting research that industries are interested in, with the spirit of'from lab to the market.'" President Kim also explained the Hanyang MEB Center, the Hanyang Humanities Enhancement Center, and the industry membership system. He also introduced the'Hanyang AI Solution Center,' which has been established with the support of the Dongwon Industry. About startups led by professors and researchers, President Kim mentioned, "when evaluating professors, startup and technology transfer should be considered as much as the SCI journals. The university should increase the extra value created within the society by operating research labs related to the market , developing good technologies, and cooperating with the startup support center, technology-based companies, or the industry-university cooperation center."

[Alumni][Attention! Hanyangians] Kakao Bank representative alumnus Yoon Ho-young listed as an icon of an innovative financial game-changer

The Kakao Bank placed itself as a benchmark for a global internet primary bank in financial innovation and economic successes such as turning into the fastest profit-making internet bank after two years of its establishment. At its core stands alumnus Yoon Ho-young, who was listed as an innovative financial game-changing icon as the representative of Kakao Bank. Mr. Yoon graduated from Hanyang University's Department of Business Administration and started his work in the Korea Fire Insurance in 1996. After he worked as the management chief at the ERGO Daum Direct, and as the Head of the Management Support Team at the Daum Communications and Kakao, he built an expertise in fusing finance and IT technology. Moreover, when he was working as the vice-president at Kakao, he was the first to prepare for the establishment of the Kakao Bank. The Kakao Bank came out announcing 'the start of a new bank different than before,' The internet primary bank was a new form that had to place itself in the market by squeezing through the prior bank areas, which nobody could guarantee its success. However, the Bank unexpectedly succeeded in its first profit-making in 2019, only after six quarters of its establishment. At the moment, the asset size grew as must as the local banks and the monthly bank application user number exceeds all other banks. According to the Munhwa Daily, published on August 24, Mr. Yoon said that “I've never thought about standardized leadership when leading the Kakao Bank” and noted that “businesses are live organisms. They require different leadership according to the business evolution stage,” Because there is no set path, there is an indisputable flexibility that the leaders show when establishing a new road. Now, Mr. Yoon is the leader of financial innovation. Mr. Yoon emphasizes horizontal and even relationships more than anything. It is because of the thought that'thinks are apt to fall when the people in their 40s plan and 50s to 60s decide on the services that people in 20s to 30s will use'. Following Mr. Yoon's management philosophy, every employee at the Kakao Bank uses English names and horizontal business cultures are attempted in diverse parts such as the working space and organization structure. In addition, Mr. Yoon gathered some intelligence groups to hold debates to struggle through the uncertainties of the future. It is from his belief that group intelligence is more efficient than individual ones. The typical example is the debate that took place for two weeks in the process of deciding to only provide mobile app services without PC banking as the prior bank businesses do. Mr. Yoon persuaded the need for a mobile application service that provides the best conveniences to the employees who supported PC banking. The reinterpretation of decision making efficiently shows Mr. Yoon's work method. He highlights that “although the authority of decision making is in the hands of the organization's chief, the real decisions must be made by delegating a person that thinks most about the problem and who is familiar with it to reach the best decision.” In fact, Mr. Yoon assigned the application design decision to the relevant department. In exchange, the responsibility is on Mr. Yoon. Mr. Yoon announced last May that “we will incarnate the Kakao Bank First that lets people think of our bank when they hear the words mobile finance through service extension and enforced customer experience.” The Kakao Banks' steps to reaching the goal within this year will be paid attention to.

[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 global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Hee-jin
