[Special]Hanyangians with Unique Part-Time Jobs

College life can be very expensive. With books, food, and occasional gatherings to pay for, students are often left with empty wallets. So, many seek part-time jobs. The usual options are working at a coffee shop or a convenience store. However, some students have gone through unique part-timer experiences that are worth sharing. Communicating in three languages at a duty-free shop Park Jung-moon (Department of Electronic Engineering, 3rd year) shared his experience of working as an interpreter at a duty-free shop. Park worked from June to December in 2018. “I spent the first three months translating and giving directions. Then I started greeting guests from the membership desk for the next three,” said Park. Park Jung-moon (Department of Electronic Engineering, 3rd year) shared his experience of working as an interpreter at a duty-free shop selling tax-free luxury goods. (Photo courtesy of Daum News) At the start, Park did not expect his job to be unique or difficult. “I thought a duty-free shop would have a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, like a gourmet store selling luxury goods,” said Park. He soon changed his mind, realizing that “due to the majority of customers being proxy buyers, infamous for hoarding goods and reselling them through online markets, the shop was very busy and hard to organize.” When asked about the pros and cons of the job, Park replied that his Chinese and English skills were enhanced at the cost of minor physical pain. “I have had very few opportunities to meet foreigners in Korea, but as I worked at the duty-free shop, I was able to meet various types of people. On the downside, controlling the crowd and standing for a long time hurt my legs and back a bit,” said Park. Park said the part-time job offered him a chance to meet new people and changed his personality. (Photo courtesy of JoongAng Ilbo) Park also said his personality changed after the experience. “I used to be shy, but after encountering so many people during the part-time job, I became more outgoing. Also, I had no knowledge about make-up materials, but after selling cosmetics, I know a lot about them now.” Reflecting on his experience, Park recommended the job to Hanyangians who are confident in speaking other languages and not afraid of meeting new people. Memories of chicken skewers Hong Gil-dong (anonymous interviewee, College of Engineering, 3rd year) also introduced an uncommon part-time job he had during March of 2018, which was to cook chicken skewers on a food truck. “I wanted to try out something new before enlisting for the army,” said Hong. Touring around Seoul and Gyeong-gi province on a truck, he served customers chicken skewers he cooked on the spot. As a unique part-time job, Hong Gil-dong (anonymous interviewee, College of Engineering, 3rd year) cooked chicken skewers on a food truck. (Photo courtesy of Hong) The work, for him, was very easy to learn. He also liked that the shift usually ended around 4 pm, earlier than the contracted 5 pm, because they quickly sold out of chicken skewers. Yet the most joyous part of the work was “getting to have chicken skewers limitlessly.” His boss was kind and always let Hong have the spare chicken skewers. He also exchanged food with other food trucks which sold sushi, soda, and other snacks. “One drawback of the job was that there was no fixated work spot for me to punch in for work,” said Hong. The chicken skewers Hong cooked. (Photo courtesy of Hong) Cooking chicken skewers was the most satisfying part-time job Hong has ever had. “The job is pretty free for the majority of the time. The shift is 7 hours but I barely worked for three.” He added –with confidence- that he learned how to cook chicken skewers better than any man on the street. “On top of that, now I know the economic workings of chicken skewers such as the initial cost and net profit inside out.” “I recommend this part-time job to all of my fellow Hanyang students,” Hong said, adding that the job was fruitful, fun and educational, especially for men who are waiting to enlist in the army and have a lot of free time on their hands.

[Special]Tourism After the Coronavirus Outbreak

Everything has stopped due to the coronavirus outbreak. Nations across the world have imposed travel restrictions to prevent the spread of the disease. The tourism industry has been directly affected by these procedures, recording a 98.2 percent drop of inbound travelers in April compared to previous years. However, despite the hugely negative downturn, Professor Lee Hoon (Division of Tourism), one of the leading commentariats in the field, has a rather positive outlook on tourism. The tourism industry has directly been affected by the recent coronavirus outbreak, but Professor Lee Hoon (Division of Tourism) maintains a positive outlook on K-tourism in the long run. “The tourism industry faces crises of some form every three to four years,” explained Lee. Nonetheless, the professor acknowledged the unprecedented nature of the current condition as traveling inbound and outbound were both shut down. This is expected to create a huge economic blow as the industry is in an interdependent relationship with the visitor economy. Lee estimates a 50 trillion to 70 trillion won loss in tourism revenue this year alone as long as the epidemic continues. The government has recently provided a bailout package to maintain employment and to support the industry. Seoul paid an extra 5 million won to individual tourist agencies through stimulus checks. However, Lee pointed out the absence of holistic measures as there have only been stopgaps to prevent the industry's abrupt collapse. “The government measures disregard the blind spots of tourism, most of which are freelancers and small business owners,” criticized Lee. "They need to shape a crisis management system by viewing the tourism industry as an ecosystem." Lee said there is a huge demand in the crisis management system to support the ecosystem of tourism. (Photo courtesy of Newsis) However, Lee maintains a careful optimism about the future of K-tourism. He expects that excellence in the K-quarantine will give a positive impact on the tourism industry. “The quarantine authorities of Korea have secured trust through transparent information disclosure and active treatment of international tourists,” explained the professor. Lee added that it will provide a favorable condition for visitors when tourism is resumed at full-scale. Lee predicted that once the tourism does resume, the form of travelling will change. “Travelers are expected to rely more on foreigner independent tours (FITs) than group tours,” said the professor. Also, there would be more provocative attempts in the convergence of tourism and informational technology, as well as advancements in the management of safety and hygiene. “As people are getting more sensitive about such issues, accommodation and food culture are those that are bound to undergo improvements.” Lee expects that the excellent practice of K-quarantine will contribute to the future success of K-tourism. Lee asked for a shift of ideas, encouraging the introduction of innovations in tourism. “Travel needs will not disappear as long as people live their lives,” said the professor. “The coronavirus outbreak can be a blessing in disguise from the perspective of the tourism industry, which could eventually lead to a step-up in K-tourism.” Considering the demands for overseas travel, Lee forecasted domestic travel to rapidly increase in return. The professor expected tourist attractions that provide beautiful natural scenery with fewer people will gain popularity. Lee recommended cities along Route 7 (i.e., Samcheok, Uljin, Yeongdeok, and Pohang) for this summer vacation. “Those cities offer feasible coastal drives as well as great trekking courses along the seashore,” said Lee.

[Special]The Story of a Library Keeper

While most universities stopped opening their libraries or reduced operating hours due to the coronavirus, Paiknam Academic Information Center and Library is keeping their hours the same as before. “We thought that maintaining the library as the students' studying place would be safer, rather than having them gather outside,” said Professor Han Hyun-soo (Director of Paiknam Academic Information Center and Library, Division of Business Administration). In order to maintain the opening hours, Han and other librarians are making extra efforts to prevent the virus inside the library. Professor Han Hyun-Soo (Director of Paiknam Academic Information Center and Library, Division of Business Administration) is guarding the students from the coronavirus. As COVID-19 become more serious, it is Han's daily duty to patrol the library day and night. He guides the students to keep their masks on at all times and to practice social distancing. Han has also posted announcements around the building telling students to notify him if someone is not wearing a mask or is not following social distance guidelines. Once he receives a note, he rushes to the spot – even during our interview. Han posted announcements with his phone number, which reads "If you spot a person who is not wearing a mask, please contact the number below." Han also checks students' temperatures at the entrance of the library. If their temperature exceeds the normal (36.5 degrees), students are not allowed to enter the library. Han is also in charge of checking the students' temperaturex in front of the library entrance. Patrolling the library, Han said he feels a sense of admiration, seeing how hard the students are studying, and pride as the director of the library frequented by such great students. “I hope everyone works together and overcomes this situation safely. For that, I would like to sincerely thank the library staff, who place the students’ safety as their utmost priority,” said Han. He added, “I'm also very sorry to the students that I have had to force to leave.” Han patrols the library day and night, guiding students who do not have their masks on or are not adhering to social distance guidelines. The librarian prepared some hopeful news for after the coronavirus. “With a donation from the president, we were able to afford to build a music hall and a small movie theater on the second floor, in place of where the director's room and the president's rooms are currently located.” Construction will start once the coronavirus epidemic is over. Private lockers are also being installed on the second basement floor. “There will be more places to rest and study pleasantly by the time students come back to the library. Until then, I hope they do their best to study while staying safe,” said Han. Hwang Hee-won

[Special]Teaching Practicum Without Students

For students in the College of Education, the teaching internship is a mandatory requirement in order to graduate. Normally, students would visit high schools or middle schools and temporarily take on the role of teacher for a few weeks, preparing lectures and handling administrative work. However, due to the coronavirus, offline classes were stopped and teaching practicums had to change as well. Two students shared their teaching practicum experiences which were quite different from how they typically are. Handling online classes Cho Sung-hyun (Department of Education, 4th year) had his teaching practicum for two weeks at his old school, Jeonju Youngsaeng High School. Cho’s job was to analyze the textbooks and create his own lessons for the students. Since Cho could not give his lectures face to face with students, he had to record the lectures with a camera in the empty classroom. Cho edited his videos, uploaded them to Youtube, and shared the URL of his lectures through EBS Online Classes. “For my first lecture, I kept forgetting the lines and had to re-record the video multiple times - I repeated the greeting more than 10 times,” said Cho. Cho Sung-hyun (Department of Education, 4th year), during his teaching practicum at Jeonju Youngsaeng High School, had to teach his students through online Youtube videos. (Photo courtesy of Cho) “Since teachers couldn’t directly see students listening to the classes, we had to somehow make sure that students actually watched the class videos,” said Cho. He explained that they assessed the students’ learning progress through quizzes using Google form surveys. Cho also utilized Youtube to communicate with his students, holding a question and answer session through Youtube videos. “Some other teachers preferred to communicate through messages and phone calls,” said Cho. Although this year’s teaching practicum was different from the usual experience, Cho said there was a lot to gain. “It was fascinating that I could have a positive influence on a student’s life. Although my current dream is to become a producer of educational documentaries, I think I would have changed my career to teacher had I done the teaching practicum earlier.” Cho added that “My only regret is that I could not spend time with my students. I would describe my first teaching practicum as a ‘first love with regrets.’” Feeling the passion of teachers Lee Da-eun (Department of Applied Art Education, 4th year) had her teaching practicum for four weeks at her old school, Dongduk Girls’ High School. Lee also had to carry out her classes online, and she prepared art lectures for senior students, which were uploaded onto the EBS website. Lee also attended the online real-time classes of senior teachers. She was also in charge of checking attendance through simple quizzes in the morning and calling students who did not solve the quizzes. Lee Da-eun (Department of Applied Art Education, 4th year) gave online art lectures to senior students during her four-week teaching practicum. (Photo courtesy of Lee) Lee recalled that in the beginning, the teachers were very confused about how to handle the situation and that there was a limited amount of work Lee could do as a trainee. So, Lee and other trainee teachers used their spare time to practice together. They gave class demonstrations and received feedback from each other. Lee and other trainee teachers used their time wisely by giving class demonstrations and receiving feedback from each other. (Photo courtesy of Lee) Lee said the most memorable experience was when she conducted phone counseling with students who dreamt of working in the field of art. It was exciting that she was able to help them work out their problems. “It was sad that I could not experience the teaching practicum fully because of the coronavirus,” said Lee. “Nonetheless, the experience was still meaningful for I felt the passion of the teachers struggling to educate students even during this harsh time.” Hwang Hee-won

[Special]We Study with Running Pace Maker

It is often tough to study for university lectures alone. Running Pace Maker is a program that supports Hanyangians in their efforts to study difficult major courses with their colleagues and seniors as a group. Students who participate in Running Pace Maker form small groups with others who are studying for the same class. Participating members are provided with scholarships as a support fund, and teams that demonstrate active participation and cooperation are selected as superb teams and receive awards. Growing together with the group members Koo Su-jin (Department of Electronic Engineering, 3rd year) and Jeong Hee-do (Department of Electronic Engineering, 3rd year) are currently participating in Running Pace Maker to study for their major class, Integrated Circuits. Their team studies online twice a week through a video conferencing system. Koo joined Running Pace Maker last year. Since then, she has recommended the program to her peers, and Jeong joined this semester as well. The two said they received a lot of help from their team members in reviewing lecture materials and learning the concepts in depth. Initially, they were worried because their major classes require understanding a vast number of concepts, but together with the group members, they can contribute different knowledge and understand the difficult details as well. Koo Su-jin (Department of Electronic Engineering, 3rd year) and Jeong Hee-do (Department of Electronic Engineering, 3rd year) are participating in Running Pace Maker to study for their major class, Integrated Circuits. (Photo courtesy of Koo) Each practice session starts with one chosen presenter explaining the concepts, followed by the team discussing additional and more detailed information. After each session, the team makes summary notes based on what they studied. Koo said they plan to share them with all the students in their department. “There were inconveniences because we had to communicate online, but we could study well thanks to the hard-working team. The members participated in the sessions even when they had a lot of assignments and were having a hard time. I feel very lucky to be part of this team,” said Koo. The team plans to record their own study results and share them with people in their department. (Photo courtesy of Koo) Running Pace Maker gave me confidence Park Chan-gyer (Department of Architecture, 2nd year) joined Running Pace Maker last year, on his friend’s recommendation. At the time, Park said he was having a hard time in one of his major classes, Design. He wondered how his peers were coping with their problems and decided to join the study group. Park Chan-gyer (Department of Architecture, 2nd year) joined Running Pace Maker last year and has been participating in it ever since. (Photo courtesy of Park) One thing he has realized through the study group is that even for the same project, students deal with the topic from infinitely different approaches. “We designed a rooftop idle space once, and each member came up with entirely different approaches and development methods,” said Park. “We spend much of our time exchanging thoughts and ideas with each other, and it definitely allows us to grow.” This study method has also changed his personality. Until last year, he was not the kind of person to share his work with others out of a fear of being compared. However, during his studies, Park has experienced more positive cheering, encouragement, and sincere advice than comparison, and it has made him more confident around others. “Right now, the lack of face-to-face experiences due to the coronavirus is a huge disadvantage, but because of that, the team is working harder on their studies,” said Park. He thanks his group members for openly sharing their thoughts and opinions, and understanding each other's ways. Hwang Hee-won

[Special]Recalling the Master of Thinking

Ten years have gone by since Professor Rhee Yeung-hui (Department of Media Communication) passed away. The late professor was a journalist, a scholar, and a social activist, who remains a symbolic figure of press freedom and Korea’s democracy. Evaluated as “the Teacher of Thought” for young Korean intellectuals in the ‘70s and ‘80s, what Rhee called for is still being followed today by his students, journalists, critics, and fellow scholars. Professor Rhee Yeung-hui (Department of Media Communication) was a journalist and a scholar who symbolized the freedom of the press and the struggle for democracy. (Photo courtesy of The Hankyoreh) Rhee was born in 1929 at Unsan, North Pyongan Province. During the Korean War, Rhee served in the military as an interpreter officer. Rhee started off his journalism career by joining the Hapdong News Agency in 1957. He moved to the Chosun Il-bo – one of the country’s most influential newspapers – as a foreign news editor. However, Rhee was advised to resign in 1968 due to his series of articles opposing the authoritarian government. The journalist returned to the Hapdong News Agency as a foreign news editor, where he experienced his second dismissal in 1971 for a similar reason. With a recommendation from Professor Jang Ryong (Department of Media Communication), Rhee joined Hanyang University as an assistant professor the following year. Rhee remained involved on the front lines of the pro-democracy movement since then. As a consequence, the professor was forced out of office twice and was imprisoned three times by the government during his tenure at Hanyang. After his last return, Rhee participated in the establishment of the newspaper The Hankyoreh as a non-executive director, which claimed to be "the first newspaper in the world truly independent of political power and large capital." Rhee retired in 1995 but kept on teaching as an emeritus professor at the Graduate School of Journalism and Mass Communication. He died in 2010 at the age of 81. "The sole purpose of writing starts and ends at pursuing the truth." Rhee, in his book Idol and Reason Rhee was renowned as a prolific writer which brought him fame as the maître à penser (the master of thinking). Rhee usually published books on social issues, and they had a sensational impact on young intellectuals in the 1970s and 1980s. Of particular note, in his book Logic for an Era of Transition, Rhee criticized the sweeping trends of reckless anti-communism which were prevalent due to the Cold War. It was a paradigm shift for journalists and collegians who experienced the Korean War in their youth. Rhee received numerous awards including the Manhae Practitioner Prize (an authoritative award held by the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism in commemoration of the symbolic reformer Manhae Han Yong-un) in 2000. Rhee was subjected to fierce criticism by his political rivals after the 1990s. The opposites criticized that Rhee came to hasty conclusions on controversial social phenomena. Besides, his adherence to antiwar sentiments aroused repulsion in people who gave priority to national interests. However, it is undeniable that Rhee provided new insights into Korean society. He was one of the first South Korean intellectuals to overcome McCarthyism with his famous quote – “A bird flies with both left and right wings.” Rhee was referred to as the maître à penser (the master of thinking) for his struggle for democracy. (Photo courtesy of KBS) Posterity will remember Rhee as a great journalist and scholar. “Rhee led the new generation and contributed to the fostering of intellectuals with his publications,” said Choi Young-muk (Department of Media Communication, ’85), a professor of Sungkonghoe University and a renowned media scholar who used to be Rhee’s teaching assistant. Professor Ahn Dong-geun (Department of Media Communication), who studied under Rhee, also showed respect towards his teacher. “Regardless of criticism posed upon him, Rhee’s competence and ability as a scholar will be recognized by future generations.” Oh Kyu-jin

[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. Global News Team Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

[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.

[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]주년 Global News Team Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Special]Scene Stealers in Popular Dramas

In the past, only the main characters of television shows were allowed into the spotlight. Nowadays, however, the roles of supporting actors are essential in producing good scenes. These so-called scene stealers dominated many of the popular dramas early this year as well. Three actors from Hanyang have also received much attention for their appearances in much loved dramas of 2020 and have made headlines for their roles as scene stealers. Performer of unlimited genre, Kim Hye-jun Kim Hye-jun (Department of Theater and Film, '20) debuted as an actress in 2015 in the web drama The Great Lilies. Since then, she has gradually built up her career as a main and supporting actor in a number of dramas and films. Kim gained attention through the film Another Child in 2019 in which she portrayed a high-school girl who finds out about her father's affair. Her performance in the film earned her the Best New Actress award in the Blue Dragon Film Awards that year. Kim's most recent performance was in Netflix’s first original Korean series Kingdom, a historical zombie drama which received critical acclaim as a “refreshing addition to the zombie landscape.” Kim powerfully delivered in the role of the avaricious Queen Consort Cho who was desperate to secure her power over the Joseon Dynasty. “Although it was my first historical drama, it gave me a great opportunity to develop and grow as an actress,” said Kim. Kim will soon appear before audiences again as she takes on the lead role in the new drama, Sipsi Ilban.

In 2015, he appeared in his first commercial film, The Shameless. After that, Lee gained increasing popularity starring in diverse dramas and films, receiving the nickname "Kang Dong-won of the independent film world." Lee’s acting shined in the 2020 drama The World of the Married, the highest-rated Korean drama in cable television history. Lee took on the role of an abusive boyfriend of another supporting character, who commits crime under the orders of the main villain. His appearance on screen created a stifling atmosphere within the storyline, perfectly playing the role of the tension trigger, and introducing himself to the audience as a scene stealer. This year, Lee is planning to make an appearance in the drama Sweet Munchies and the movie Sinkhole.

The commercial was quite famous and even now, many Koreans remember her as the “ice cream girl.” After her debut, Jung's childhood was filled with acting jobs in numerous dramas and movies. “I don't dislike the fact that I’m mostly only remembered as the 'ice cream girl.' Rather, I'm happy and thankful that people still remember me after all these years,” said Jung. “However, I do hope to leave a different impression through my future work and will be remembered as a proper adult actress.” Jung has received much attention for her first performance as an adult in 2020 Netflix drama Extracurricular. The drama portrays crimes committed by high-school students including digital crimes, prostitution, and school violence. Jung successfully portrays a bully who earns money through prostitution and shows the raw reality of high-school violence, shocking the audience.
