   On March 29th 5:00 P.M., at the Choheodang Seminar Room, the supposed public interview with President Han Tae-sik (Bogwang) was delayed. Instead, the chief of the Office of Student Affairs participated and delivered the reason of President Han’s absence and an official document confirming the next interview date (April 8th). Yet, whether students will also be able to attend the next meeting is not decided. Later on, there was an inquiry session, and a video was shown filmed by the alumni of Dongguk.

   The General Student Council (GSC) conveyed their stance of intervention of the Jogye Order in electing the president, President Han’s thesis plagiary and the repression to members of Dongguk University. However, the GSC was not able to receive reply since President Han was absent. Instead, Kim Sang-kyun, the chief of the Office of Student Affairs, explained, “President Han was not able to attend the interview since his health condition got worse.” It is known that President Han recently got a surgery for his lung cancer. Then, he handed over the official document confirming the next interview date to the chairperson of the GSC.

   In the inquiry session, An Dre, the chairperson of GSC, questioned the range of people that can participate the next meeting. To this, the Chief Kim answered that nothing has been decided yet. Park Kyoung-gun, the chairperson of the Student Council of Political Science and Diplomacy, demanded the school to apologize for using excessive force to suppress students who were blocking President Han’s car which happened last Monday. In this regard, Baek Seung-kyu, the team leader of Student Support Team said, “Even though what happened yesterday was unfortunate, it is difficult for a rational response to a physical fight.”

   Meanwhile, Professor Han criticized President Han about his thesis plagiary and the interview was closed after watching a video filmed by the alumni of Dongguk. The video briefly summarized the issues of Dongguk University in five minutes. The vice chairperson Jo Seong-woo said, “The GSC will do our best to have a public interview with Bogwang sunim on April 8th and we ask for many donggukians to join this occasion.”
