One of the most popular pastimes for college students in South Korea is gaming. Many Hanyangians also play games to release stress and socialize through online platforms. With the long summer vacation ahead, some special clubs at Hanyang University present diverse ways to enjoy computer games while promoting fellowship between various gamers at school.
The 2020 management board said any player who has one character above level 200 and has a clean playing record is welcome to join the club. The board invites all Hanyangians, stating that in their club “all players from all kinds of background come together through the game platform and become friends.”

HYES is another huge gaming club in Hanyang University which scouts 80 new members every semester. The club is a part of the ABC club, which is being funded by the gaming company Blizzard. The president of the club, Kim Ji-hyeon (Department of Media Communication, 4th year) explained that the club does not specify the games the participants can play and that the members are free to play any games they like within the club.
HYES holds various events as well, such as a PC room overnight stay, a HYES special event called Full Playthrough where the club rents a party room and starts a new game which they play until the morning in order to clear all the stages, and an HYES tournament. “For the last tournament, 60 participants competed for a grand prize of 200,000 won,” said Kim. In addition, they hold offline sessions in Hanyang university classrooms in order to bond over playing games and meet regularly.
