First of all, I want to thank my friend and the Dongguk Post for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to monitor this English magazine. I was impressed by the fact that Dongguk students are interested in the Post enthusiastically and participate in reporting various kinds of issues and useful information. Overall, articles were good but also there were articles that are vague or not specifically reported.
At the very first part of the magazine such as “Nintendods,” and “Losing Chuseok Traditions” weren’t as much fascinating as the other articles. The articles were too obvious. In other words, maybe most of the students are well aware of the function of Nintendo DS and the difference between Nintendo DS and the PSP. I expect in more details of Nintendo such as the approximate cost and what kinds of games are popular. In addition, the customs of Korea’s great national holiday, Chuseok, have noticeably changed a lot compared to the past years and that people are taking holiday as to take a vacation.
The article entitled “Sosdae literature” was fresh and new to me and I admire and respect her as one of the greatest role models who is passionate in her career. I was also impressed by her caring and giving hopes and courage to the disabled. It was very touching.
The cover story, “Four pillars, Palmistry, and our future,” was also interesting to read even though I don’t believe in such superstitions. With the tests taken from the Dongguk Post reporters, I agree with the Post’s conclusion that people shouldn’t take prediction or advice from the palmist or fortune teller seriously even if it sounds true.
Lastly, “discovery of Arab DUBAI” and “Curator or Courtesan” were very helpful for me to understand in details of DUBAI and the professor’s point of view on social issue which was a fabrication of Shin’s degree. It was very organized and well summarized with the professor’s clear and strong opinion. I believe that these kinds of articles are needed for university students to think logically on the matter and develop one’s knowledge. It will be also useful for job interviews because the company might ask questions on Korea’s social issues or problems. Therefore, I suggest the Post to focus more on reporting important issues happening in our society and get various kinds of opinions from not only the reporters but also all Dongguk students. I also look forward to hearing good news from the Post and thank again for giving me the chance to monitor the campus English magazine.
