Each student council of the College of Buddhist Studies and the College of Education united to hold the “Bulguksa,” a joint event, from November 8th to 12th. According to the organizers, they established the meaning of Bulguksa as Dongguk University between the College of Buddhist Studies and the College of Education in Korean. It was designed to relieve the stress of students tired of the prolonged COVID-19 situation. The event was largely held in three parts.
The first one was, “Do You Want to Be Kkan-bu?” Kkan-bu is a Korean word that means a lifelong old friend. It was an event that allowed seniors, colleagues, and juniors who could not meet due to COVID-19 to meet and talk online using Webex, and to give tasks and perform together so that they could be close enough to form a relationship like Kkan-bu, not an one-off meeting.
The second event was “Bulguksa Singing Contest.” The singing contest was held with both faces and names covered, and students’ participation was increased by boasting the best singing skills in both colleges and by giving prizes. The videos of anonymous participants singing were uploaded on the official Social Network Services (SNS) of Bulguksa and voting was done by using Google Form. 12 Students participated in the singing contest, and a total of five students were ranked by voting and evaluation.
The last event was “Where Is Monk?” It provided an opportunity to students to ask questions they usually wanted to ask the monks in order to solve prejudices and curiosity about them. The seven respondents, who had to reply to five questions, consisted of six monks and one general student. Participants in the event had to find out the ordinary student. If people spot all the monks, they had a chance to get prizes. The student councils of the College of Buddhist Studies and the College of Education, who held the joint event, increased participation of students by preparing prizes for participants as well as special events.
