[Alumni][Attention, Hanyangians!] Alumni Lee Young-kyu Chairman of Welcron Group Becomes a K-Quarantine Leader

Lee Young-kyu, chairman of Welcron Group, a medium-sized company that maintains technical skills in functional material fields such as microfiber, is a matchmaker. He transformed the crises which others said were difficult, the 1997 and 2008 financial crises, into opportunities by making aggressive investments. As a result, Welcron, which started as an industrial textile company, now has Welcron Healthcare and Welcron Hantec under its wing, with last year’s sales reaching 391.9 billion won. ▲ Alumni Lee Young-kyu poses in an interview with Maeil Business Newspaper (Photo by:Maeil Business Newspaper) Lee graduated from Hanyang University's Department of Organic and Nano Engineering in 1992 and started his business. While he was working at his second job at Yakjin Trading Corporation after the Tong Yang Nylon Corporation, his participation at the Japanese textile product exhibition served as momentum. Seeing that microfiber was only being used to create high-end textiles, he proposed using it as a cleaning cloth. He thought “the added value would be great if I make cleaning tools such as mops and dishcloths with microfiber.” Lee focused on the added value of the commercial microfiber field from the start of his business and devoted on developing microfiber post-processing technology. As a consequence, he created a highly absorbent composite material that has better absorption and cleaning power than ordinary fabrics, and which has become acknowledged as an environmentally friendly product across Europe. However, all of a sudden, the IMF financial crisis broke out. Lee went to the bank before the financial crisis . “We decided to export the microfiber cleaner to Germany and Sweden” and asked the bank to “lend us money to build factories and buy machines as we wanted to handle all of our customers' orders.” Even the company faculties said it wouldn’t work, but after persistent persuasion, they were able to borrow 350 million won. Thanks to the money to buy factories and handling all the orders from foreign countries, their sales tripled from 2.8 billion won in 1997 to 8.8 billion won in 1998. The second crisis came along with the 2008 global financial crisis. As the global economy stagnated and exports decline, Lee turned his eyes to domestic markets and concentrated on developing bedding products using microfiber. In his interview on May 17 with Maeil Business Newspaper, he said that “60% of current sales of Welcron is from the bedding and living industry sectors” and that “We would have stayed at as a small and medium-sized company if we hadn’t taken on new challenges at the time.” Also, he added that “Our company has grown during the two crises” and showed confidence that “We also see a possibility in COVID-19.” Verifying his statement, Welcron’s living business sector has been slowing down due to the aftermath of COVID-19, but the meltblown felt, which is the core material for mask filters, and their masks are playing an important role. The amount of production of the meltblown felt rose to 50t per month. In the past, Welcron has had a history of success in developing a KF94 level mask filter that was accredited by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety by developing a HEPA filter through the meltblown complex radiation construction method in 2008. Lee said that “The mask factory production line located in Bucheon is now producing 1.2 million masks per month, and we are planning to add one more production line by the end of this month” and that “If we have a chance, I would like to export masks around the world and play a role in promoting the "K-Quarantine." Currently, Lee is focusing on expanding the business scope by using the material business as the next growh engine, including the high-efficiency filter projects using the meltblown method and defense projects using composite materials. Lee showed his will by saying that “the defense industry is growing five times the size of its plant located in Gimhae,” and that “We will start various material industries such as multi-material applied products and PTFE artificial vascular tubes in the coming future.” Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

[Reviews][Experience] Midterm Exams During COVID-19

Seven weeks after introducing online courses for the first time due to COVID-19, how did Hanyang University proceed with its midterm exams? How were the online and offline exams for students? Our reporter will convey the experiences of various student. However, please take into consideration that it contains subjective content of students’ positions. The midterm exam period recommended to all undergraduate departments of the Seoul campus by the Office of Academic Affairs was after April 27, seven weeks after courses began. The format of the midterm exams was in principle by remote testing (online tests), Blackboard assignments, or emails. Other types of tests were also available at the instructors' discretion. If the conditions for compliance with preventative measures could be met, face-to-face exams (offline tests) could be conducted with the approval of the department dean or the Infectious Disease Control Committee. Offline Exam: ‘Relief’ by thorough preparation with social distancing and the wearing of masks Six weeks after the start of online courses, I received an email from a professor from one of my courses regarding the midterm exam. The content was about some worries with problems of online exams and the burden of students at the end of the semester because of the increased scope of the test if midterm/final exams were to be integrated. Therefore, it was informing us about getting student consent to conduct an offline test during week 8. After receiving consent for the midterm exam from all students, the offline exam was carried out with the approval of the department dean and the Infectious Disease Control Committee. On the day of the exam, about 50 students took the exam for 60 minutes in a large classroom that could accommodate about 190 students. Before entering the classroom, body temperatures were taken using an infrared thermometer to minimize physical contact, hand sanitizer was applied, and mask verification was carried out. Students were seated diagonally for social distancing, and the exam started after students filled out the COVID-19 self-health care questionnaire. When I was notified of the offline exam, I was worried about getting infected with COVID-19 due to lots of people gathering in one space, but I felt the possibility would be very low since the temperature checks and hand sanitization were done for all students along with social distancing measures including wearing masks. Online exam : Open book test with 8 questions lasting for 4 hours… preventing cheating with descriptive questions. Meanwhile, one course had an online exam with a form of open book test. It was a course with a total of 40 students. The method was downloading the exam questions which were uploaded on Blackboard at a set date and time and submitting the answers on time through e-mail and Blackboard. As it was an online exam, all test questions were comprised of descriptive questions to lower the likelihood of cheating through using the internet and solving problems in coordination with other students. Unlike the usual test format, using analogy and reasoning from what we learned in class was needed. On the exam day, 8 questions and 4 reference papers were available to us. The alloted test time was 4 hours and 30 minutes, which is far more than the 90 minutes of class time, in consideration of online bugs and unexpected situations in writing answers or uploading times. There were no major problems related to not being able to upload or download files, and I was able to finish the exam after having sufficient time to think due to the generous amount of time provided. Cheating was the biggest concern as it was an online test, but because it was a descriptive exam, having the same answers could be prevented. Amidst the ongoing COVID-19, both the school’s inevitable position of having to conduct tests of any type, and the students’ concerns of getting infected through physical contact during offline exams and cheatings in online exams were both understandable. Offline and online exams may have been the best way to evaluate students' progress in each course although both methods had pros and cons. Hopefully those on both sides understand each other’s position in the midst of the difficulties and can overcome the crisis by caring for each other.

[Alumni][Attention, Hanyangians!] Having Applied for 1,000 Patents over 23 Years, Kim Dong-won's Inventions Continue

▲ Kim Dong-won Alumnus Kim Dong-won, Hanyang alumnus and Director of the H&A Based Research Lab of LG Electronics has applied for 1,000 patents over the past 23 years. He is also the person who developed the clothing quality caring appliance, the Styler, and a laundry machine called the Twin Wash that has a combination of a drum washer and a top-loader washer. Kim received the Invention King of the Year award in 2019, which is the highest honor among all engineers, for the achievements that he has made in developing industrial competency. Kim graduated from Hanyang University's Department of Mechanical Engineering, finished his masters and doctorate at KAIST, and entered LG Electronics in 1996. Rather than studying pure academics, he wanted to use the knowledge that he acquired and provide an easier life for people through the creation of new products. The first team that he was assigned to was a group that was developing clothing equipment such as washing machines and dryers, which allowed him to focus on clothing-related home appliances for the next 20 years. The Styler that he developed came from a thought about how to make fewer visits to the cleaners. Considering that people could reduce the daily inconvenience of going to the cleaners and then having to return to pick up their clothing, he researched at least 5~6 times a day, and sometimes up to 10 times. After 9 years of research, the Styler was released in 2011. While in the beginning, its selling profit was not very high, in the end, it created a new market called "clothing quality caring appliances" and reached its highest selling volume in February. Moreover, Kim is also the developer of the Twin Wash, a laundry machine that has a combination of both drum washer and top-loader washer. The Twin Wash was a great success, recording 10 thousand sales within just 12 weeks. There have been more than 1,000 patents including the Styler and the Twin Wash, both of which he applied for after entering LG Electronics. On average, Kim has applied for a new patent every week. His numerous inventions led him to receive the the Invention King of the Year award. This award is only given once a year to one inventor that has highly contributed to industrial development and national competency through technology development, and is considered the greatest honor among all engineers. Then, what is the secret to his inventing skills? At an interview with the Seoul Press on May 5th, Kim mentioned that "every time I want to give up, I ask myself whether the product that I am working on truly holds value from the perspective of customers." He added that "while asking myself this question over and over, I come up with the confidence that I can provide customers with better benefits and values." He also mentioned that "I also tell my younger co-workers that if they are confident that a product will be valuable to customers, then they should not give up on it despite the difficult process." Kim still does not know the word "pause." "Washing and drying clothing is one of the most tedious house chores," Kim continued, "but I want to persist in developing clothing-related appliances so that they can help reduce the working hours inside the house and make the chores more convenient so that customers can use their time more valuably." He also mentioned that he is "planning to create an appliance that can create a brand new field of demand in kitchen appliances, which can be called 'the 2nd Styler.'"

[Special]Hanyang University Accelerates Plans to Build a Green Campus, Strengthening Student Welfare

Marking the 81st anniversary of the school's opening, Hanyang University is accelerating its plans to build a student value-centered green campus that increases student welfare and eliminates safety concerns. The remodeling of the old field, the installation of the artificial turf stadium and club activity rooms that can be used all year round, and the creation of a new underground parking lot that can accommodate 863 vehicles helps ensure both student safety and ease the campus parking space shortage. ▲ Hanyang University completed the construction of the artificial turf stadium and underground parking lot on April 15 to mark the 81st anniversary of the school's opening. At the ceremony held at the Seongdong-gu Seoul campus, a limited number of people participated by getting their temperatures checked and wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Hanyang University completed its artificial turf stadium and parking lot construction on April 15. The remodeled area (total area 30,823㎡) has on its ground floor an artificial turf soccer field that adheres to international standards, two basketball courts, a 400 m track, and fitness equipment. On the two underground floors, along with large scale parking lots, shower rooms, and about 50 multipurpose rooms planned to be used as club activity rooms are being provided. The old ground floor parking lots will eventually be converted to green areas, continuing the environmental improvements so that students can enjoy pleasant environments on campus without cars, said an official at Hanyang University. Kim Jong-ryang, chairman of Hanyang Academy, a school cooperation, said on the same day that “We hope students will be able to enjoy a safe and environmentally friendly campus with the completion of the green campus construction that we worked on for a year and a half.” Kim Woo-seung, President of Hanyang University also said that “The construction of a student value-centered campus is the ultimate value our university should pursue.” ▲ Hanyang University completed the construction of the artificial turf stadium and parking lot on April 15 to mark the 81st anniversary of the school's opening.

[Event][Full Text] A Congratulatory Speech from the President of Hanyang University During the 81st Anniversary Ceremony

Today Hanyang University celebrated its 81st anniversary. We are gathered here today surrounded by everyone who loves Hanyang University to celebrate and share their joy with one another. I believe that the hearts of those who shaped Hanyang University with keen interest and passion over the past 81 years are here with me right now at this time. Thank you very much. Today, during this joyous occasion, I think of the noble willpower and wishes of Paiknam Dr. Kim Lyun-joon, the founder of Hanyang University. His firm will to develop the country through education and practicality to foster ‘the practitioner of love’ is still a valid calling here, right now, as we mark the 81st anniversary of the university’s foundation. Dear my beloved Hanyang University family members, During last year’s 80th anniversary ceremony, I talked about the new 100 years of challenges. Although there are still quite a few things to improve on, over the past year, I have pushed, to the best of my ability, for mutual development of both the Humanities and the Natural Sciences departments, Seoul and ERICA campus, and the undergraduate and graduate schools, while also reorganizing the curriculum into a more user-centered one for the students’ development, introducing the IC-PBL curriculum to foster problem-solving skills and establishing an educational environment to actively utilize EduTech, which will become the foundation to the new challenges that the university will undertake for the next 100 years. Additionally, in order to create a collective research ecosystem and to establish a research system to strengthen its connection with society, the Industry-University Collaboration Center (IUCC), the Medicine-Engineering Bio Convergence MEB Center, and the Hanyang Humanities Enhancement Center was established to drive the growth of Hanyang University. Honorable Members of the Hanyang University Community, Hanyang University’s founding principle, “Love in Deed and Truth”, will now help us dream of understanding and creating harmony beyond the competition by partaking in global causes based on our interest and love for others. But of course, all of our family members of Hanyang University should be at the center of all these grand aspirations and plans. Over the past 81 years, Hanyang University will participate in a new challenge based on the brilliant practical achievements that the university has achieved. Like Churchill said, “The price of greatness is responsibility.” And with that, in compliance with the safety measures imposed in our daily lives due to COVID-19, our university students would like to express their gratitude towards their professors and employees who are dedicated to conducting a fever check for all visitors by holding themselves responsible to ensure the safety of the students entering and leaving the building. I believe that this is the true practice of “Love in Deed and Truth”. Let’s give ourselves a round of applause. Dear my beloved Hanyang University family members, People say that our society will now be divided between pre-COVID-19 and post-COVID-19. The most straightforward example to this is that distance learning classes, which suddenly started, will now become a must-have process, not a choice. This does not mean that offline lectures will disappear completely, but that distance learning courses will be very important to supplement offline lectures. IC-PBL lectures will naturally be leaned towards Blended Learning, and it is not difficult to assume that industry-university cooperation will be done remotely and more easily without any restrictions on distance and time. Just like this, the pace of things changing has become even faster. The important thing is that while responding to such changes may not be easy, it is not impossible. Just like Zygmunt Bauman said, the alternative is not to be found. The alternative should be made and created. It does not exist by itself, but it rather comes from our own attempts and challenges. All living things and any other organizations are innovating their organizational structure to adapt to environmental changes, and the tasks for individuals are decimated and created along the way. Every organization seeking innovation will have a partial and whole paradoxical experience, and only those that overcome it will create an ecosystem of evolution that is sustainable and evolving. However, the organization as a whole will be on the verge of collapsing when it comes to sacrificing an entire organization’s innovation for the protection and benefit of the organization’s parts and individuals. In order to prevent this from happening, all members associated with Hanyang University and their efforts are required. As always, I believe in the passion and ability of our Hanyang family members. No matter what changes come our way, we will take a joyful leap forward as we challenge ourselves, just like we have done over the past 81 years. I recently read an article that mentioned a quote by Professor Jim Dator, a world-renowned futurist and an honorary professor from the University of Hawaii, who said, “The future is unpredictable.” He also said, “It is a very dangerous and unwise gamble to plan only one type of future. It is your duty to come up with a policy that can respond to whatever the future unfolds for you.” “The future is not about predicting, it’s about dreaming about it and making it come true.” Although we are currently facing an unpredictable era, I believe that the future of Hanyang University will be bright if all members work together to prepare ourselves for the dream that our university is ultimately aiming for. Based on the accumulated power that has been nurtured in Hanyang University’s history, I think that all members of Hanyang University are responsible to make sure that the university evolves into a system that supports our society through policies that respond to the changes of our era. Since policies are only implemented through the right regulations and systems, I ask all members of our university to be self-conscious and strive for more sustainable development of Hanyang University, in order to eliminate deficits that can be caused due to the wrong policies being created. To my dearest Hanyang family members! Whatever the new challenge is for today as we celebrate our 81st anniversary, I believe that the Hanyang family will be at the center of it. I know that you have contributed to building our university to where it stands today with great dedication and passion, so I would like to say that you are the most valuable and irreplaceable asset of Hanyang University today. Please continue to bless Hanyang University’s future with great interest and love, and walk with Hanyang as the school embarks itself on more journeys that are to come. Once again, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who celebrated the 81st anniversary of Hanyang University. Much love to you all. Thank you.

[Event][Photo] Track and Field Construction Completion Ceremony

On May 15th, University's 81st anniversary, the ceremony for the completion of the Track and Field Artificial Turf Stadium and the Underground Parking Lot was held. Due to rain, the ceremony took place on the box seats and the completion was celebrated through the cutting ceremony and commemoration planting. The construction of the track and field took one and a half years, starting from November 2018. The artificial turf stadium that meets international standards with a width of 100 m and length of 68 m was constructed at ground level, along with two basketball courts, a jogging track, and fitness equipment around the stadium. Underneath, two underground floors of a parking lot were established with a capacity to hold up to 863 vehicles. The parking lot also has electric car charging stations and parking spaces for female drivers. Around the parking lot, 49 locations will be provided to students for the use of student clubs. Considering mobility difficulties, an elevator tower that connects directly to Paiknam Music Hall and the underground road to the FTC building were also constructed. The total ground area of the track and field and the parking lot is over 30,000 ㎡. Meanwhile, the Office of Facilities Management has solved the problem of a lack of parking spaces with this construction project. The office is planning to prevent access to vehicles in certain areas and create more green spaces on campus for students to be able to enjoy a safer and more comfortable campus.

[Event][Full Transcript] Hanyang University's 81st Anniversary Commemoration Statement by the Chairman of the Board

Dear Beloved Hanyang Family, Around the day of Hanyang University's Anniversary, the scent of acacia flowers from the founder Paiknam Kim Yeon-jun's song "Song of May" spreads around campus in the wind and enters our mind. But this year, it is lonesome to see the empty campus, where students should be experiencing the scent and happiness around the school. While the COVID-19 situation is finally relenting, it has left a scar on all of our minds. What is fortunate despite this terrible situation is that while suffering from the virus that is sweeping across the world, the medical team of Korea has become a leader in the world, entering the field despite all the dangers ahead. Korea has also become the nation with the most advanced national system, where the disease prevention system and sanitation system have operated without major failures. I would like to deeply thank every medical team staff member and person in the Hanyang University medical team family for their efforts and devotion. The reason why numerous people have responded to the "Dukbun-ae" challenge is that all of us have felt gratitude to the medical teams throughout this situation. While standing in this place, I would also like to thank all the entire Hanyang family. Professors that put all their efforts into their students' education using online lectures, students that have followed along with the online lectures while regarding the emergency and cooperating in spite of some deficiencies, the university staff that established the online lecture system in advance that allowed our university to cope with the situation relatively quickly, and everyone that has focused on the quarantine to prevent in-school infection. Dear Beloved Hanyang Family, Going through this situation, I have contemplated the limitations of humanity and where people should be heading from now on. During this contemplation, I again, learned the meaning of and the great value of our foundation's ideology, love in deed and truth. Humanity has mainly tried to increase developments and scientific technology. However, in the end, perhaps we were too full of hubris. After this COVID-19 situation, it seems to me that perhaps we were looking down on essential issues of humanity such as making a humane society. What we have learned is that in the end, we need to make a change. I hope that the changes are more optimistic and desirable. Towards a direction where each of us can look back on our responsibilities and know that we took them seriously. "Our solidarity and rationality have been put onto the test." As the Prime Minister of Germany, Angela Merkel, said, we need to head away from greed, arrogance, prejudice, and discrimination and work on restoring the touches of humanity in the community with love in deed and truth. To All the Loving Hanyang Family Members! While we celebrate out university's anniversary this year with heavy hearts, it has also become a great chance for us to ruminate on Hanyang's founding ideology, Love in Deed and Truth. I hope that our anniversary in 2020 will be a day where everyone can once again place value on our ideology and have greater faith in love for students and love for the school. Further, I hope that it will be a day where we look back on the system of the university and deliberate on how to respond to the changes in the world in the future. Lastly, I hope that all people of the world will wisely recover from this situation, and I pray for the stability and happiness of the whole Hanyang family. Thank you. May 15th 2020 Chairman of the Board, Hanyang Foundation, Kim Chong-yang Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Reviews]81st Anniversary Emblem... Hanyang's Value Expressed in Numbers

▲ University's 81st anniversary emblem (Left) English (Right) Korean With the university's anniversary coming up, the Design Management Center unveiled the 81st anniversary emblem. The emblem will be used for designs related to the university anniversary ceremony, serving its purpose as a symbol of the university's 81 years of history that began in 1993. The biggest characteristic of the 81st year emblem is its connectivity with the 80th anniversary. While the 80th anniversary tried to convey the 3S university innovation strategy within the emblem and included strong movements of 3 circles, the 81st year emblem has taken another step forward and opened up the closed circle to the outer side. The shape of the number 1 is created by connecting a line to the middle point of the number 8. The period indication of 1939-2020 has been included on the connected number 1. Through the process, the numbers 8 and 1 are not two separate numbers but are interconnected. Different from the 80th year emblem, which was only expressed in a single color, a detailed gradation effect was included on the bottom line from number 8, providing a shadow effect with an extra three-dimensional effect. ▲ (Left) 80th Anniversary Emblem (Right) 81st Anniversary Emblem The Design Management Center explained that they tried to include the university's Brand Core Values into this year's emblem. The brand core values in this sense mean contributing to society in smart and creative ways, and creating a global and specialized image of the university while also providing a sustainable development platform for the image. The Design Management Center explained that having this as its concept, it constructed a clear, systematic, and balanced design that presents bright and lively tones, neutral and flexible expressions, and vivid colors. ▲ Design that will be applied to the anniversary ceremony site The anniversary ceremony site's background wall, banners, and pamphlets were created using the design elements included in the emblem, which will be used to creating Hanyang University's ingenious and consistent atmosphere. The designs that are created can be viewed on Hanyang Wiki. [Hanyang Wiki] https://hyu.wiki/81주년 Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Policy][COVID-19] Offline Classes Postponed for One Week... Effect of the Mass Infection

With the rapid change in the situation for COVID-19 due to the recent mass infection in the Itaewon clubs, the schedule that allowed for offline classes on all theory-based courses has been postponed for one week. This schedule can also change depending on further developments. According to the "2020 Emergency Announcement on Spring Semester Offline Class Operation," which was announced on the 12th, the offline classes that were originally planned to be held starting from May 25th are now postponed until June 1st. The offline classes were planned to be allowed for all theory-based courses, after receiving permission by going through specified procedures. This change of dates could be postponed again according to the quarantine authority, or cancelled to remain as distance learning classes for the whole semester. Whether the offline classes will be allowed after June 1st is expected to be decided on May 18th. Experiment and practice based courses, and IC-PBL lectures were already allowed to hold offline classes from April 13th, and some theory subjects such as Career Development I got permission for offline classes starting from May 18th. The classes that were already held offline will continue to be held in the format they currently are. Meanwhile, Seoul and ERICA Campuses sent emergency text messages to all students on the afternoon of the 11th, announcing that students who visited Itaewon during a certain period must be inspected. The following is the whole text of the text message sent from the Seoul Campus. 4.24~5.6 서울 이태원 소재 유흥시설(클럽, 주점 등)을 방문한 학생들은 방문일로부터 14일간 등교를 중지하고 증상유무와 관계없이 검사가 가능하니 1339나 관할 보건소로 상담바랍니다. 확진검사 결과 음성인 경우라도 확진자와 동선과 시간대가 겹치는 경우에도 14일간 등교를 중지해야 합니다. Students who visited entertainment facilities (clubs, bars, etc.) in Itaewon during 4.24-5.6 should stop attending school for 14 days from the date of their visit. Those students can be tested for COVID-19 regardless of symptoms, so please consult 1339 or the local health center. They should stop attending school for 14 days even if the test results are negative if their travel path and time of visit overlap with those of the confirmed patients. ▶ See announcements made from the Academic Service Team at http://www.hanyang.ac.kr/surl/JkPNB Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young
