I've had other experiences at the Post that changed my fixed ideas. When I covered May Day, a holiday in honour of working people on May 1st, I was impressed and surprised when I saw workers. What I saw was much different from what I learned in high school text books and read in conservative newspapers. I had read the newspapers without criticism and just accepted the articles as fact. Rather than blaming the strikers like before, I listened to what they said and understood why they wore red head band. Since I saw and talked with them, I have learned to separated truth from fiction.
Many students want to join the Post to improve their English skills. But many students quit the Post because it's too much work. The difference between them and me is that I found what I was looking for in life at the Post.
May 8 is the 100th anniversary of the foundation of DU and June 1 is the 40th anniversary of the publishing of The Dongguk Post. The two events are very important and the Post made a special issue to celebrate both anniversaries. While preparing for this important project, I was both Editor-in-chief and CEO. Although I got very little sleep while preparing this project, I think I'm a very lucky guy to have had a chance to do it.
Now my tenure is ending and I must separate myself from the Post, but my memory of the Post will be forever.
