Interest and participation in politics by voters in their twenties and university students has increased recently. This increased interest by Korean young people is attracting the attention of politicians seeking office in the 19th national assembly election and by candidates in the 18th presidential election this year. Voters in their twenties have been indifferent to politics for some time, but they are beginning to take on more of a leadership role in the 21st century. Despite this current trend the participation of young voters in this country still lags far behind other age demographics. The Observer looked into the reasons why voters in their twenties should be concerned about politics and the ways they can become more involved.
Recently, there has been a boom in performance art in Daegu including plays and musicals. Plays are open to all ages and at low cost. Their posters can be found easily on streets off campus. Plays are performances that can touch your heart and they are a lot of fun. However, a lot happens behind the scenes, and the endless effort of the actors and actresses goes toward putting on a fabulous play. The Observer visited the play Deja vu, which is a historical drama set in Buinsa, a temple in Daegu, to report on what goes into a typical production. We also had an opportunity to interview the lead actress, ‘Jeong-Yeon Kim’ which gave us some insight into how much she puts into each performance.
Many students strive to concentrate on studying English due to the global era. However, studying English in order to get higher scores on tests can be boring and difficult for students. The Observer visited two English clubs in order to show easy and fun ways to study English. These two clubs have been created by foreign professors at Yeungnam University. Students can attend the club meetings when they have free time without any obligation. They can learn English and make friends through open conversations or games.
Anew semester starts in March, and freshmen are entering the university for the first time. In March, many freshmen are not able to adapt and feel like strangers around campus. Yeungnam University is so large. Freshmen experience difficulty finding buildings and adapting to their new lives. Of course, there are signs that give directions on campus. However, there are not many of these signs and they are often impractical to use. The Observer hopes to address these problems and find solutions.
Many students want to have direct talks with the president of our university. However, it has proven difficult to make this happen. Yeungnam University initiated a program called “Talk with the presid
