[Special]The Corona Blue Among Us

The second semester of 2020 has started but it is still not certain when the students would be allowed to return to school. Due to the ever-continuing spread of coronavirus, many students of Hanyang are getting exhausted from the condition known as the ‘Corona Blue’. This newly coined term comes from "coronavirus" and "blue", depicting the depression and lassitude caused by the huge restriction on daily lives. Kim Won-jun, a 3rd year student of the Department of Education, is one of the students who were affected by the Corona Blue. After his return from the military service at the start of the year, Kim has been most anticipating to start his social life again. "Last semester, I was really let down to realize that I wouldn't be able to see any of my friends even after coming back from the army, and it seems like it will continue this semester as well" said Kim. Kim says, during the first semester, both his body and mind were quite exhausted from doing a large amount of assignments at home, while not being able to do what he usually does to relieve stress, such as going to PC bang or karaoke. "I'm worried that the same thing would happen until the end of the second semester, too. It is very hard to control the stress level.” Regarding the Corona Blue, Professor Park Yong-chon (Department of Neuropsychiatry) explains that severe symptoms of Corona Blue may develop into an actual depression or anxiety disorder. Continued anxiety about one’s unreleased desires may lead to accumulation of anger, which, if left untreated, may result in directing the blame to oneself and develop suicidal thoughts. To deal with the Corona Blue, Park says it is important to follow the ’10 directions for keeping the mind healthy’, proposed by the Korean NeuroPsychiatric Association. - 10 directions for keeping the mind healthy - 1. Accept anxiety. Anxiety is a perfectly normal reaction during a pandemic. Anxiety itself is helpful to some extent, since it is what helps people stay alert and hygienic. It is important to accept that one is anxious, instead of trying everything to get rid of the feeling. 2. Only accept accurate and necessary information. Though a moderate amount of anxiety is acceptable, feeling the constant anxiety to search for new or updated information only increases stress and disorients people from making rational decisions. Students should set time for SNS and news, instead of revisiting them without restriction. 3. Hatred does not help. Hatred toward the infectees does not help in garnering the statistics. Also, pointing fingers at the infectees could also result in secondhand damage such as psychological trauma for the patients. 4. Realize your emotional and physical symptoms. If one feels too much stress or anxiety, it is important to see psychiatric specialist without avoiding the idea. 5. Naturalize the idea of uncertainty. Because of the desire for the situation to be over, people tend to overlook how uncertain the pandemics could be. Instead of trying to fight against the idea of change, it is important to control the mind and adapt to the paradigm. 6. Continue your connection with family and friend. It is crucial that people stay 'connected’. Having someone one can rely on completely changes the course of one’s psychological state. 7. Do valuable and positive activities. Strengthening the immune system is strongly related to keeping one’s psychological state positive and bright. Examples of the activities could include writing letters, diaries and leaving records of the day without letting them pass by meaninglessly. 8. Maintain the physical rhythm. Due to the limitations, it is easy to lose biological rhythm. Keep the regular sleeping routine. 9. Pay attention to the sick around us. It is important to be altruistic to the patients and the quarantined. Note that secondhand damage is being done even to the cured. The act of helping others ultimately sends positive psychological impact to the helper as well. 10. Cheer for one another. There are many volunteers risking their lives trying to help others during the pandemic. Try also to build a social group where “everyone protect everyone”. Professor Park Yong-chun (Department of Neuropsychiatry) shared the ’10 directions for keeping the mind healthy’. (Photo courtesy of the Medical Observer) Park ensured everyone in Hanyang University that they are not in this alone. "I know how difficult it is to put this into action," said Park, "But accepting the negative emotions and viewing them from a third person’s perspective is the key to beating the Corona Blue."

[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."
