[General]Winner of IDTC Dwell & Share Competition

On March 27th, the 2nd Dwell & Share Competition hosted by the Incheon Development & Transformation Corporation collected submissions and announced the winner on March 31st. Ji Soo-yeon (Division of Architecture, ’17) won the participation award, beating 771 teams that competed in the contest. Next Step for Urban Steps Ji's work was "Next Step for Urban Steps". She remarked that she had always been interested in multiplex housing due to the intimate atmosphere it holds. “Since the topic was strongly related to my graduation work, I felt quite lucky to participate in this competition,” said Ji. “I had more time to prepare for the competition even though I worked alone.” Ji also won the grand prize at the graduation exhibition, adding to her streak of fortune. “I feel so honored to have won two prizes in a row. I did not expect such great results, but I guess my work was well received which makes me proud,” added Ji. "Next Step for Urban Steps" (Photo courtesy of Ji) After having chosen Haebangchon in Yongsan as the site, Ji wanted to show the transition from studio to apartment in a multiplex housing. Haebangchon got its name from the Japanese colonial period as refugees gathered around to this place after the liberation from being a colony ('haebang' means liberation and 'chon' means town). The main theme of Ji’s project was to build the multiplex housing around 108 stairs, which represent Haebangchon. “I planned the first floor to be a social place like a library or a gallery, and the 24th floor to be individual housings sharing a kitchen. Each building would hold about eight households, and there would be shared workrooms including a front yard,” explained Ji. Ji explains the concept of her work. Some of the difficulties Ji faced was building up the multiplex building on such a small limited site. “In order for people to walk around and live, there’s so much to consider, and it was difficult to plan,” said Ji. “Since I was to build the area from scratch, I carefully tried to consider ventilation and lighting.” Next Step for Ji Architecture has been Ji's dream from an early age. “I always enjoyed looking around different houses. Eventually, I got the chance to build what I had planned in my mind,” explained Ji. It is not always easy to be an architect. “Listening to the critiques of professors just tears you down sometimes. Our projects get denied after days of contemplation, and we needed to start all over again.” What gets Ji going again is the joy of achieving the result that she was hoping for. “It’s like a puzzle sometimes. Once I get the last piece into the right place, and I can explain things logically, it gets to me. All that time I had spent would be for this great result in front of me,” added Ji. Ji wants to be an architect who is of practical help to others. Ji now awaits for the application results to graduate schools abroad. “I don’t expect good results since I had so little time to prepare my portfolio. I guess I will study English a little more and get my work ready,” said Ji. Hoping this opportunity will bring her positive results for her career, Ji ultimately wants to provide realistic help. “As we live in buildings all our lives, there must be some positive effects that buildings can give us. I’m not much of a architect that designs fancy buildings, but I could be of help providing what’s necessary in our daily lives,” concluded Ji. Kim Seung-jun Photos by Kim Youn-soo

[General]Filling the Stage with Lights

There is a saying “Better late than never”. This means that it is better to do something even if it is late than to not do it at all. Choi Boyun (Theater & Film, ’06) took a roundabout trip to come to Hanyang (HYU) to study what she is truly passionate about. Her admittance to HYU made her a freshman for the third time. Still, Choi was fearless, in fact, happier than she had ever been. After graduating from HYU, Choi realized her dream to work in theater as a lighting designer (LD). An Experienced Lighting Designer According to Choi, theater is a part of reality that is remade on stage. It reflects real life, but the aim of theater is to look into certain perspectives. “If a set designer builds a physical environment on stage, it is the job of a LD to decorate it with different lightings according to the intent and direction of the entire play,” said Choi. To clearly deliver the message of that play, it is important for all of the stage setting to harmonize with one another, and it is essential for designers in each department to communicate thoroughly beforehand. “It is basically the last step or the finishing touch of a play, so it is more important to listen well to other directors, designers and actors,” explained Choi. Choi picked good communication skills as the most important qualification for a LD. Thus, it is important for a LD to carefully observe the production process before he or she finalizes its lighting settings. When Choi first handed a script, she focuses on making notes on how she feels about the scenes in order to roughly plan what kind of mood she wants the lighting to have. The next step is to observe how actors move and act on changing scenes. Detailed sketches of a different scene is solely designed and determined by the LD. Thus, Choi writes a cue sheet that explains when and how lightings will be shown. Before a final rehearsal, the LD must decide which stage lighting to put in at the most desirable time and place. Starting From the Scratch Once Again “Since I was about 10 or 11-years-old, I thought I was interested in science and engineering because I spent quite a lot of time reading books about astronomy and playing around on the computer. I was able to handle computers better than most of my friends, and so I naturally thought science or computer-related majors would suit my aptitude,” recalls Choi. Her first campus life began in another university where she majored in astronomy. In her first year, Choi could soon see that this field was far from her expectations. It was more about pure science and was much more challenging to study if one did not have a strong interest. Thus, Choi decided to change to another major, mechanical engineering, in the same university. “As I was always a girl familiar with the computer, this new major seemed to suit me better than the last. Still, I was never fascinated with what I was learning,” said Choi. In her third year, Choi left the school temporarily and had a chance to see a Japanese TV show that featured Takarazuka Revue, a Japanese all-female musical theater troupe. “When I saw it, I was immediately amazed by the extravaggent makeup and outfits on the actresses. It was grand and dramatic, like falling into a black hole without even noticing,” explained Choi. Choi recorded the TV program and watched it over and over again. Soon, she started to search and study everything about Takarazuka Revue. Choi become their No.1 Korean fan and also worked as a fan club manager. “After going back to school, there was no way I could fully concentrate on classes since the lecture hall turned into a stage and the professors became actors and actresses,” said Choi. “When I start anything, it is essential to cover the very basics. This left me no choice but to apply for the S.A.T a third time. At the age of 26, I knew this would be my last chance to start from the beginning again, and this gave me stronger motivation and passion,” said Choi. Most recent work of Choi was a play 'Sister Mokran'. Choi designed the same play twice, with different lighting settings. (Photo courtesy of Doosan Arts Center) With People Who Share Dream, 'Stage Works' Through HYU's various lectures, Choi experienced diverse activities in theater production from learning how to act to designing the stage among many others, which later helped her to understand the whole process of putting on a play. In her third year, Choi got her first chance to fully design and set up lighting for the stage. “It was in a theater called Daloreum Theater. It was a big theater which made my first challenge more arduous. After fully experiencing design to the setup, I thought I would never do this again until I witnessed how the stage turns out during the real performance,” said Choi. To learn the field in more detail, she entered a separate academy and met her mentor and a team member. “Kim Chang-gi, my teacher is still one of the best LD in the field. He was very passionate about teaching me and my fellow students what he had accumulated through his career. Kim started a designers’ group with us which is called Stage Works,” said Choi. Since 2005, Stage Works provided designers for the theater stage and now serves as a group for those who hope to become a LD. Choi is currently working as an active LD in the field while teaching and leading younger students both in HYU and in Stage Works. For about 9 years, she has been teaching HYU students in a weekly lecture called ‘Capston Design’. “I am always amazed at creative ideas and viewpoints that young students give to me. It is a good learning process for me as well,” said Choi. Choi finalized the interview by mentioning her goal as a LD. “I want to be a designer with longevity in the field. I enjoy teaching, but field work is where I belong. To remain there, my task is to constantly develop my senses so I can demonstrate artwork that is always fresh and new,” concluded Choi. "My goal is to become a desinger with longevity, always keeping my works fresh and new." Yun Ji-hyun Photos by Kim Youn-soo

[General]Archive of Korean Fashion Trends

Fashion and its trends, regardless of what time period or generation, prevails everywhere as it shapes the general dress code or style formula for people. In Korea, once a trendy style or an item becomes popular, it becomes extremely easy to purchase and incredibly often seen on people. As if agreed as a must-have item or a must-wear style, certain trendy items or looks were owned and worn by nearly everyone, making them easily spotted on streets with no effort. Here are some of the most recognizable hairtyles from the year 2000 to the present. 2000-2005 First up, there was a remarkable hairstyle that might frighten people today: the 'lion hair' which resembles a lion’s mane and where it got its name from. Even though this fashion did not last long, it was clearly once a hot trend that a lot of females tried out. Lion hair (Photo courtesy of As for males, long, layered hair with side bangs was beloved. The length of hair often reached the shoulder, sometimes tied into a low ponytail. Colors or highlights were added to achieve the next level of fashionable desire. Long-layered hair (Photo courtesy of , 2006-2010 Moving on to the next period, a hairstyle called the 'shaggy cut' gained a big popularity among both males and females. It is a haircut with extreme layering, emphasizing volume at the roots. This style was pulled off regardless of length of the hair and by both genders. Shaggy cut (Photo courtesy of , Bangs were virtually a trademark of students, since almost every student had them. It is often said that women with bangs look younger because they are reminiscent of teenage girls. Around the turn of the decade, bangs were a big trend—thick bangs covered the entire forehead, leaving no room for a gap to allow a peek through the hair. Thick bangs (Photo courtesy of, 2011- present Another hairstyle that exploded at the turn of the decade and extended to the next called 'apple-hair', a tiny ponytail at the crown, was popular middle or high school girls and even worn customarily by celebrities. Apple hair (Photo courtesy of Back to the bangs, a change occurred to resurrect the trend of bangs. The thick wall of hair was divided into three equal parts, deriving its name 'trident bangs', or 'three-pronged spear bangs'. Bobby pins always came hand in hand with this hairstyle, as they were the main object needed to create the look. Trident bang (Photo courtesy of,, Evolution of bangs seems to never cease, as there was another fashion called 'goddess hair' that still reigns the world of bangs today. Exhibiting a soft wave of side bangs along the side of the face, the goddess hairstyle is more feminine and gives the impression of maturity, just as a beautiful goddess does and where its name originated from. Goddess hair (Photo courtesy of, Ensuing in the series of succession were two more styles of bangs: 'see-through bangs' and 'choppy bangs'. The two prevail at the present time, as they are the most recent joiners of the bangs lookbook. 'Choppy bangs' is “chopped” above the eyebrows while 'see-through bangs' lets others “see-through” the hair, allowing a glance at the forehead.

[General]HanAll, Sharing is Caring

Different types of organizations exist in Hanyang University (HYU), and HanAll may seem to be just an ordinary one. HanAll got its beginnings from a course: The New Wave of Philanthropy. This course teaches students about the concept philanthropy, which is different from charity in that philanthropy is the whole procedure of what social changes need to be made to solve the fundamental problem. HanAll aims to distribute the idea of sharing and the happiness of being able to help others in need. News H met three representatives of HanAll: Lim Joo-yeon (Department of Nuclear Engineering, 2nd year), Heo Yoo-jin (Department of Media and Communication, 3rd year), Lee Sang-ah (Division of Business Administration, 2nd year) How It All Started HanAll was not an official organization until last year when students formed groups in the course mentioned above, and Professor Bekay Ahn and Hanyang's president suggested creating the organization. Since no guidelines were set, HanAll went through much trial and error in the beginning, but now it has reached its comfort zone. “We managed to create a vision for the organization which is to create a HanAll Scholarship Foundation,” said Lim. Lim also added that since HanAll wishes for the scholarship to be of practical help to those in need, it is at the stage of saving up money after each activity. Lim and Heo explain about HanAll. HanAll could be of great interest to many students. Since it is an official supporter of HYU, promotion budgets are basically provided along with uniforms. In addition, members of HanAll are able to attend “Hanyang Future Forum for Creative Leaders” which limits its entrance to donors only. “It is not just these privileges that make us feel special. We get to plan our ideas and actually promote them with the help of HYU,” added Heo. Events and Activities All of the events held by HanAll are planned and promoted by the organization. In March, there was the vitamin drink hand-out event, and, in April, a cookie event was held. “With the help of Paris Baguette, we held a 1+1 event in which a student buying a cookie would result in giving a cookie towards Seongdong Social Welfare Center,” said Lee. Since planning these big events is not an easy task, HanAll faces problems with being creative. “We would like to come up with events that people would enjoy and participate in more,” added Lee. This upcoming May, HanAll is planning for a bracelet event. Lee explains about the challenges of planning events. Since the organization does not have a long history, many students do not know about its existence. “We try to spread the love and sharing by showing people and making them proud of what they have done,” said Lim. By creating donation cards and putting stamps every time a person is of help, it visualizes the sense of sharing. “When 6 stamps are collected on donation cards, the person would get a small prize. Moreover, they can have the sense of pride in knowing that they helped someone in need,” explained Heo. In addition, HanAll also meets alumni and interviews them which are then posted on Facebook. “Through Facebook, we are trying to provide useful information as well updates on upcoming events” said Lee. HanAll members wish to be of great help to those in need. (Photo courtesy of HanAll) Sharing and charity should be carried out even in the smallest amounts. Being able to help those in need is one of the most beautiful things a person can do. Through the organization HanAll, it is easier for students to take small steps in contributing to society and returning the favor. Kim Seung-jun Photos by Choi Min-ju

[General]Who’s Still Working?

On an ordinary rainy night, the campus seems serene. Lights are on here and there, and few people are spotted heading home, calling it a day. Aimlessly walking through buildings and taking a look at what students were working on, their fatigue and zeal were evident. News H reporters this week toured around both campuses and met students working into the night at school. A group of actors First, stepping into the ITBT building (Seoul Campus), where practicing rooms for ballet, theater and music are situated, News H reporters caught sight of a group of play actors. They were honing their acting skills for their upcoming performance this May- Macbeth 2017. The actors were practicing psychologic gestures in a circle while reciting their own lines. They normally gather at the practice room every night and practice until 10 p.m. “As an actor, it is our role to demonstrate the faults in our reality by depicting them expressively. In the play Macbeth 2017, we are portraying the nature of one’s inner greed and how it can be overwhelming and self-destructive if swayed more frequently than permissible,” Kim Young-rae (Department of Theater and Film, Graduate School), one of the actors in the group noted. Actors are practicing psychologic gestures with their lines. A trio of gayageum and geomungo Moving on to Paiknam Concert Hall (Seoul Campus), trails of Korean instrument sounds led reporters to a small room of three students from the Department of Korean Traditional Music. They were practicing an arrangement piece for their exam since 5 p.m., and were to keep practicing until the building closes at 11 p.m. As string instrument majors, they had calluses on their hands, due to many years of practice every day. They confessed that the room could be extremely humid in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. Nevertheless, they would not be deterred from going there to practice. Three students were spotted practicing their instruments. Sketching and stitching people Next, visiting the College of Human Ecology (Seoul Campus), a room occupied by a number of students was observed. Students majoring in Clothing and Textiles were working on their class assignments by drawing patterns on a piece of clothing quite similar to an architectural blueprint. One of the students described assignment nights as sleepless because of the time and conscientious effort that goes into completing the work. Students said they typically linger around to work until the building closes at 10 p.m. Peeking through the door, the students were found working quietly. Two mechanics in a lab Two students of the Mechanical Engineering Graduate School (ERICA Campus), were in an engine laboratory designated for designing engines and testing newly designed ones. The two engineers were coordinating the pipes where coolants are transported and displacing and reorganizing them into new positions. Neither one of them could say for sure when the project is to be completed since they had just begun working on the task. No doubt they will be working on it day and night. The two students are relocating equipments for coolants. Two pharmacists in a lab Moving to the next place, an interesting scene was captured. Two students of the Department of Pharmacy (ERICA Campus) were creating and testing new drugs. They had composed a formula of a drug with a number of candidate substances and were experimenting whether it would be applicable under certain circumstances or not. Once the formula meets a list of conditions satisfactorily, it is to be tested on mice then on cats or rabbits. They began their experiment at 9a.m. and had been working for longer than half a day. After they leave the lab around 10 p.m., the students are planning to study more. In a laboratory, two students were testing several substances for a new drug. A class of ballerinas A group of ballerinas had gathered in a practice room on ERICA Campus participating in a special license-obtaining course offered by the Social Education Center. The license is one of the graduation requirements for the students of the Department of Dance, which naturally attracts a lot of students. They have classes three times a week starting at 7 p.m. and ending at 9 p.m. Students majoring in dance are participating in a course for a license. Jeon Chae-yun Photos by Kim Youn-soo

[General]Cycling Around Seoul

Cycling is a form of great exercise, and a mode of green transportation that takes people along far greater distances compared with walking. With certain problems affiliated with owning a bicycle, whether it be the cost or the fear of getting the bike stolen, there is no longer any need to worry- with Seoul Bikes being provided around the city. Currently, 450 stations with 5,600 bikes are available all around Seoul and is estimated to increase in number, up to 20,000 bikes, with 1,300 stations to be built by the end of this year. Seoul Bike Two types of tickets are available for Seoul Bikes: seasonal vouchers, and one-day membership vouchers. The price of a one-day voucher is 1,000 won, but in order to ride the bike for the whole day, it has to be returned to any station within one hour since its rental time and additional charges would be applied if the bicycle is not returned within the original rental time. In other words, the bike rental service itself is available for the whole day under the premise that bicycles are returned to any station in Seoul every hour. Procedures for renting Seoul Bikes. (Photo courtesy of Seoul Bike) Most stations exist where a lot of people visit or pass through, which makes it easier to access the bikes. Since mobile applications are also available, there is no need to worry whether a certain station has all of its bikes rented out or not. The app's services come with the locations of bike stations and how many bikes are available in real-time. Additionally, useful features such as the distance travelled, riding hours, calorie consumption, and CO2 reduction make the bicycle ride more worthwhile. Riding along the bike roads will lead to Han River. Courses around Hanyang University Some of the best bike courses are provided around Hanyang University following the Jung-rang stream. The courses lead to Seoul Forest, Cheong-gye stream and as far as Han river as well. In addition, since there are quite a lot of Seoul Bike stations on the way, which makes the check-in and out processes much easier. Road signs are available, and places to rest on the way are also offered. Great views on the way to Seoul Forest. As the weather gets warmer, it would be quite nice to travel around Seoul on a bike. It's great exercise as well as it being an opportunity to contribute to CO2 reduction compared to riding cars or buses. Kim Seung-jun Photos by Kim Seung-jun

[General]2017 New Year's address

Hanyang Family Members! The New Year has come. We wish all of you and your family a harmonious year full of hope and happiness. Last year, Hanyang was breathless with the variety of activities that kept us busy. It was an eventful time for our school both in Korea and abroad, where effort was made to find Hanyang’s identity through creative challenges. In the process, much adversity was met but bigger achievements different from previous years were tasted. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all those who shared in those difficult times last year. As we ring in the new year, we bring in new hope. Not all wishes and expectations we have at the beginning of the year can come true, but I believe that hope in our hearts will be the greatest force that will enable us to endure. I hope everyone be more healthy and achieve the wishes you made. Hanyang Family Members! When I became the president, I mentioned that two keywords: creativity and sharing. We pondered over how to best express “sharing” in expressing our founding philosophy: ‘Love In Deed.’ If it has been a period of preparation and planning till now, this year is when the idea of "sharing" will be realized more concretely. Prestigious universities around the world do not simply produce intellects with superb brains, but warm-hearted human talent. Therefore, this year will focus on the fostering the ‘sharing’ program to the fullest degree. Last year, we achieved outstanding evaluations both among national and foreign universities. Joonang Ilbo’s University Evaluation reported on Hanyang Seoul Campus stepping up from 3rd to 2nd, and ERICA Campus retaining 8th place. In QS World University Rankings, Hanyang University was ranked the 171th university in the world, showing a huge increase from 193th last year. From the result of such evaluation, it is clear that Hanyang University is being recognized as a globally respected university. This year, all of us will continue to do our best to keep this upward trend going. In 2017, Hanyang will continue to improve the research capacity for each department and equip students with a system that can provide bona fide learning. We call this ‘True Education’ which means not only teaching well but also helping to develop each student’s capabilities. We will increase the number of multi-majors and fused majors programs that will open doors between departments and allow students to study their desired majors. As well as strengthening our basic and applied research, focus will be on fostering students’ entrepreneurship spirit through cultivating creativity, development and cooperation that will continually help them to pursue their goals of enterprise. Hanyang Family Members! All around the world we face turbulent times of uncertainty. In addition to the political turmoil domestically and overseas, the decline of school-age population, difficulty of financial expansion, and the imminent era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, change and unpredictability surround us all. This year will be a turning point for Korea as it will determine whether Korea will be thrown off or join the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In order to actively cope with these unpredictable environmental changes, we must lay the foundation for sustainable development based on the core values of Hanyang by remaining faithful to the fundamentals with a longer outlook. I look forward to your dedication and cooperation again. 19th-century Swiss philospher and lawyer Carl Hilty said, "The most unbearable time in life is when the bad weather does not last, but the days when there are no clouds." We do not know what kind of waves will come before us in 2017. However, bad weather and strong waves can make us stronger and wiser than calm weather. This year, despite any waves that stand in our way, with the help of each other, we can weather any storm. In addition, I am grateful for the united strength of the Hanyang family. That tenacity will give us the courage to leap forward in 2017 as we had last year. May all members of the Hanyang family have health and happiness. Thank you. Happy new year. ▲ New Year's card by President Lee Young-moo

[General]The First Female Referee for Male Volleyball Match

Jeon Young-a of the Department of Sports and Arts ('94) majored in Coach Training and is recently recognized as the very first female referee to judge a male professional volleyball game in Korea. She was given the new title on December 18th 2016, when she first stood as the referee for male professional volleyball competition. Calling attention to the fact that there has not been any female referee to umpire male games previously, the significance is put on her as the first being. Feeling both excited and pressured with responsibility, Jeon has shared her impression about her achievement. Met again in 10 years In 2006, News H met with Jeon to interview her when she was named as the second female head referee to judge female professional volleyball competition. From then on, 10 years has elapsed and she gained another title as the first female referee for male professional volleyball match. This is a remarkable report as all previous male games were judged by male referees. A female umpire in male volleyball match is not unprecedented in international games but it is an aberration in Korea. “Despite female referees’ fitness and competency, they had never been able to stand in men’s competitions for no specific reason. Perhaps, Korea’s somewhat gender biased custom could be accountable for this. I am absolutely honored to be the first one and break the tradition,” remarked Jeon. Jeon met with News H for the second time for her achievements. Comparing her current and past self, Jeon noticed several differences. In the past, as she explained, she strictly confined herself to the rules of the game and had less flexibility than she does now. With more experience, she earned the ability to comprehensively incorporate her empirical knowledge to judge various situations more faultlessly. She now tries to be more understanding of both players and the coaches, leading to judgment satisfied by both teams, the coaches, and the audience. Jeon analyzed her experience and interpreted that there is a big difference in judging male and female games. In the case of female games, absorbing concentration is required since there are exchanges of long rallies between the teams. On the other hand, male players have quick and powerful attacks that make it hard for umpires to catch, thus necessitating agility and action freeze ability. The core difference lies on speed and rally duration between male and female games. On a continuous journey Nothing comes without effort, as did Jeon’s achievement. Since the last interview with News H, one of Jeon’s goal was to become an international referee, which she actualized in 2012. She confessed that she faced failures twice during her attempts and that overcoming the language barrier was the biggest impediment on her way. “In order to achieve your goals, it is unquestionably important to be passionate and hopeful. For me, however, I had age limits. The age of 41 is the limit for international referees and that is when I became one. I did not worry about aging, but about losing my passion,” noted Jeon. Recalling to the past 10 years, Jeon is describing her progress. Even after becoming an international referee, Jeon was not assigned to any of international competitions for two years due to many other proficient international referees in Korea. Only after a long wait did she finally get a chance to stand at an international match. She still has a goal yet to achieve, which is to umpire international games beyond Asian games and even Olympic competitions at last. Her goal for every set of matches she judge is to make sure every player feels fair and right and to minimalize criticism she gets. “Working as a referee I had been featured in many online articles. This means I was subject to netizens’ judgment about my performance, which could either me positive or negative. I was hesitant to read those comments because negative comments make me feel discouraged. However, I came to embrace all comments and do my best to get praising comments only,” noted Jeon.

[General][Op–ed] Where in Korea should we visit?

Although South Korea is part of a peninsula, it is quite hard to approach the sea for many. People love visiting the sea yet they get so little chance to see such a sight that would fill their eyes with joy. That is why I have set out on a journey to Busan to introduce some of the most beloved places in Busan. [Haeundae] This is probably one of the most famous places that people love to visit during the summer. Although there are some other famous beaches, Haeundae is continuously acknowledged as one of the hottest vacation spots in Korea where people become filled with excitement. Other than the beach itself, people love to visit the Busan Aquarium which is the largest in Korea. In addition, the Haeundae Cine road is one of the best places to take a photo overlooking the Gwangan bridge lit up at night time. Since the road is located around the shoreline introducing diverse movies that have been filmed in Busan, it would be a pleasable experience to visit the place for a walk after having dinner. Gwangan Bridge can be seen from the Haeundae Cine Road. Dongbaek Island is located right beside Haeundae and a lot of people visit the place since it is well known for its trail course. Also, the APEC house is located on Dongbaek Island where the APEC conference has been held in 2005 is open for free of charge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Since there are great photo spots where Gwangan Bridge can be seen. [Centum City] This is the part of Busan where people visit for shopping and entertainment. The Guinness World Record holding department store for being the largest in the world, Shinsegae store is located in Centum City and inside the department store, there are diverse entertainment facilities such as the ice link, movie theaters, golf range, aqua land and so on. Apart from that, there is the Busan Cinema Center where Busan International Film Festival is held every autumn. Diverse types of films are on screen and at night, the place itself becomes a landmark as it lights up the whole roof with color. Busan Cinema Center and the Guinness World Record department store [Subyun Park] It is the first established park by the water in Korea located in the middle of Haeundae and Gwanganri. Although in the past, it used to be the sea, it has been created as a park in 1997 and it can accommodate 40,000 people. Filled with flower gardens, benches and shades, a lot of young people visit the place for drinking in summer and this is one of the hottest pick up spots in Busan. In addition, since it is so close to Gwanganri, it would be suggested that you take a walk at the beach as well. Subyun Park is one of the most beloved places by the younger generation. [Gamcheon Village] Some of the magazines that describe about this village refer to this place as the “Santorini in Korea”. Although it can’t be said that this village is as glamorous as Santorini, it has its own history. Gamcheon Village used to be the part of town where it has fallen behind and categorized as the low income settlement area. Starting with the 2009 village art project, a lot of houses and roads have been fixed and walls were painted. Since it is still a village where people’s houses are gathered together tightly, you should be careful not to violate their privacy especially in the summer when windows and doors are wide open. Gamcheon Village is still going through a lot of renovation. Apart from the places suggested, a lot of other special places exist in Busan such as the Busan tower, Songjeong beach where surfing lessons are taught, Dalmaji Hill, Songdo Skywalk, Taejongdae, Dadaepo and the list goes on. Having no special plans for the holiday season, I would strongly suggest that you visit Busan. Kim Seung-jun
