What movie would you like to recommend?


"I’d like to recommend a movie named, <I Can Speak>. This movie is about our history when Korea was under Japanese control. Koreans have suffered because of the Japanese for several reasons, and one of the most humiliated thing was being enforced by the Japanese as sexual slavery. While watching the movie, I felt anger because of the Japanese, and I also felt sorry for the victims. After watching the movie, I strongly felt that we should never forget the history of our country, and we have the responsibility to help the victims. I recommend the movie to everyone, and I am very confident that no one would regret watching the movie. "

Change in my Path


"I used to be a member of our school’s hockey team. I was pretty good at it. I was once an MVP! However, as soon as my second semester ended, my mother told me to study instead of playing hockey. The fact that she thought pouring lack of passion in academic field, I made a decision of leaving my team. Yet, I still miss playing hockey. I miss doing something that I wanted to do."

What's your Favorite Hobby?


“From a young age, I’ve always enjoyed playing sports with friends. This is mainly because I love outdoors and being active. I also enjoy being in a competitive atmosphere and collaborating with other team members. I play both tennis and basketball, and it’s interesting to see the contrast between the two. Tennis involves individual effort, whereas basketball involves team effort. These sports are very enjoyable and give me pleasure.”

Ending the Senior life



“Being free from regret was the most difficult thing in my senior year. During preparation for my college admission, regrets and mistakes that I’ve done for 19 years overwhelmed my mind. It isn’t easy to express my thoughts and the lessons I’ve learned in words, but to be honest, I think facing myself and my life was really hard. We needed to write down our essays reflecting each of our life honestly and sincerely, because fabricated essay isn’t truly showing me. There were hard times, but discussing and cooperating with others helped me overcome those difficulties and bring up with more great ideas. I just want to advise to the upcoming seniors that the topic of the essays do not need to be unique. The topic could just be your daily life. It’s your job to pull out the value of yourself throughout the story of the essay. Also, do not evaluate your life as worthless during your senior year. Your life is really precious. This is what I learned in 2017.”
