[Policy]Changed Parking System Applied for the Fall Semester

The parking system of the Seoul Campus will go through a partial change starting from the fall semester. Some regulations that have been temporarily allowed until the end of the 2020 year will be newly applied again starting from January of 2021. Accordingly, 'Untacting,' a term coined in South Korea to describe a contactless world, will be reinforced as a service during the process of parking management. Untacting service will be provided through a PC or mobile application, without having to visit the parking office. Even for the cases where parking tickets for events are needed, registration should be done online. The parking price for faculty will also be raised from 1,000 won to 2,000 won starting from the fall semester. For the discount price, 10 hours, 12 hours, and the one day pass will all be removed. Only 2, 3, 6, 8 hour passes will be used. Meanwhile, providing discounts by showing personal ID will also be stopped starting from January of 2020. This is due to the increase in automatic payments, where registered vehicles must register through a seasonal ticket or go through the discount process. While registered vehicles can receive a discount service if the seasonal ticket is not registered, the regular price will be applied to vehicles that are not registered. A paper parking ticket will only be used temporarily until the end of this year. Visiting vehicles will receive a discount through the 'smart parking ticket' that will be given from the visiting department. Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Policy]QR-PASS System Operated for Entering Campus Buildings

Due to the spread of COVID-19 and reaching the second level of social distancing, Seoul and the ERICA Campus will reinforce the university prevention system though applying the campus QR-PASS system. The Office of Information and Communications Technology Services informed that the QR-PASS system is operated by connecting the 'COVID-19 Self-Checking List' on the portal log-in and the 'Mobile Electronic List System' that is used for the campus building entrance. For the operation of the QR-PASS system, a QR code will be attached to each building entrance in a panel form with the information of the buildings. The system will be officially operational starting from September 1st after undergoing a testing period of one week. ▲ QR-PASS guide using the Hanyang University Application (Contributed by: Office of Information and Communications Technology Guide) Through the system, not only those related to the university such as students and faculties, but also those using other institutions, visitors, and the public can self-check their health status and log their building entrance. If the Hanyang University application is already installed, the QR scan page can be opened directly by touching the 'QR-PASS' menu. Even if the application is not installed, the QR code can still be scanned by using the portal application, by following the scanning guide posted on every entrance of the buildings. While the QR-PASS has to be checked every time when entering a building, a self-checking list only needs to be made once a day regardless of the buildings. As the QR-PASS system is being operated, body temperature checking stickers will not be given out anymore.

[Alumni][Hanyang Hand-in-hand] Alumnus Ko Jae-kyung, sharing and giving is the legacy of my life

Sharing and giving is the legacy of my life Ko Jae-kyung, the Ubong Scholarship Committee Chairman of the board (Honorary professor of the College of Medicine) ▲Ubong Scholarship Foundation Chairman Ko Jae-kyung (Honorary professor of the College of Medicine) It was an obvious reason and logic. The mine of his late father was the signal post. Having a mindset that ‘my small help will be needed for others to move forward’ and putting into action. The Ubong Scholarship Committee Chairman Ko Jae-kyung says that this is the ‘donation philosophy.’ Also, with this belief, he has donated 260 million won since 2016 for scholarships and donation funds for the College of Medicine. The path that Chairman Ko Jae-kyung walked and the future legacy he will walk on is the value of sharing and accompanying. The heart for Hanyang followed by donation and sharing Ko Jae-kyung’s late father, who was a local district’s enterprise business person had a belief that business performance made by the love from the local community should be returned. Furthermore, Chairman Lee is acting out the belief given as his father’s legacy. ‘I didn’t donate by a special chance or to let people know. I just think it is the effect of my father’s belief. Especially, my father strived to provide scholarships to students with difficulties living and helped them grow as a fine citizen’. Chairman Ko’s alma mater is not Hanyang University but he was a scholar that researched in Hanyang University’s College of Medicine for 28 years, which is not a short time. In terms of the development of molecular biology research, he said that it was from the help of Hanyang University that he could enrich his academic findings. Moreover, when he was working at the school, he said the reason for getting the ‘This year’s professor award’ three times was due to the students and the school. ‘I hope for the best for the students and therefore have a great affinity for Hanyang and this naturally led me to donate. Wouldn’t it be the cast that this kind of strong support for school becomes the base to make the world better by letting each person’s healthy growth ?’ Chairman Ko says that it is rewarding to give donations to schools that have future talents that will be of help to the society. He indicated that it is unfortunate to see students that change their dreams from financial difficulties rather than working towards it. That is the reason why he wants his sharing to be a strong support for his juniors. Happy society comes from the circulation of sharing 'As I had mentioned previously, I worked in Hanyang University for 28 years and resigned in 1997. It has been more than 20 years since I left school, and I am very greatful that I can provide help to students, juniors, and the school that does not forget me. This makes me happy and proud of myself.' After giving donations to the school, Chairman Ko said he was happy and glad. What would be his idea of Korea's donation culture? Chairman Lee says that ‘developed nations’ have a culture in which each person and company holds responsibility as a member of society and shares the results that they have achieved by putting in their best efforts. Also, these good deeds are then well circulated to become a nation that everyone lives happily. In this sense, he is already putting the value of sharing into action to make a ‘developed nation’. This is because continuing his father’s belief of ‘growing and developing with the local citizens to contribute to the society’, he established the ‘Ubong Scholarship Foundation’. It has been more than 30 years since the establishment of the Ubong Scholarship Foundation. From the start of the establishment, he is providing a full-tuition scholarship for Gwangju district university students. Furthermore, he is running a philanthropic enterprise along with the scholarship foundation. There is a facility called the ‘Nazareth House’ that supports the education and raising of children who are left out of families and societies and need help. It is a place run by sisters that forms family unions to provide a right and stable environment for children to grow into fine adults. I got in touch with them very long ago and have been helping them ever since’. When asked about a special episode he can remember, he talked about the start of the relationship with the Nazareth House. It was a time of the IMF in 1997 when it was difficult for the Nazareth House to receive donations as everyone was living in difficult situations. Chairman Lee even heard unfortunate news that it was not even possible to afford high-school tuition fees, which was why he decided to start is ‘sharing’. Afterward, he is constantly giving supports for student tuition fees or facilities even if it is a small help. It has been decades of relationship with the Nazareth House now. It is also rewarding to support through scholarships for university students, but he said that it is even more rewarding to hear that the little children of the Nazareth House becoming a healthy grownup as a member of the society. ‘Wouldn’t living a life that helps others be the value of life?’ ▲Ubong Scholarship Foundation Chairman Ko Jae-kyung (Honorary professor of the College of Medicine) Donation, a faith of being a help to others Chairman Ko Jae-kyung majored in biochemistry, which is one of the field of basic medicine and received awards such as the national seogryu medal, Paiknam academic award, and Kumho academic award. ‘I have made efforts for the research development of the Hanyang University’s medical education growth and this field through biochemistry. I cannot describe how honored I was to receive a very meaningful lifetime award for my effort. I am again grateful to think back at the moment.’ The standard and value of life differ for each person. When Chairman Ko was once a scholar, thought the value in life is a life that has its goals to be of small help to one’s academic field’s development by research. As it is not researching for one’s own good, it is also a form of intellectual sharing, a donation. ‘My definition of sharing is ‘not a concept of sharing what’s left, but being a help to others by sharing what I have’. It is the belief that my small help will be a support for someone to move forward and for that person to give back what they received to the society. This is my own ‘sharing philosophy’. In no time, Chairman Ko Jae-kyung has walked for 90 years in his life. His friends and those who had the same goals are cheering for him in heaven. ‘It is true that nothing can stop the time. But there are precious families beside me, I can move however I want, and even have hobbies that I enjoy. Also, the Scholarship Foundation that I established by accepting my father’s belief has been more than 30 years. I can still live a life that can be of help to others and I think this is the value of life.’ Hanyang University and the College of Medicine work together to meet their goals. It is his wish to be the stepping stone for future talents to freely expand on their dreams. Like Chairman Ko’s hopes, his life until now and the value of life is already a huge support for numerous people.

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

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

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

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