After the first press conference, another conference was held to denounce faculty using violence to the students on February 2nd.
During the first conference, “Dongguk Promotion Committee for the Future” maintained on three main issues: structure reformation of board of directors’ meeting, board of directors’ mass resignation, resignation of Han Tae-sik.
Choi Jang-hoon, the former chairperson of the Student Council of the Graduate School, said, “The fight of students, lasted over a year, was ignored, and Jogye Order intervened the school matter once again. Han Tae-sik (Bogwang)should resign and the intervention of religious order must be terminated to settle this continuous dispute between students and the school."
Students condemned the violence of faculty on the second conference. According to the students, a drunk faculty hurled insult at them who stayed in the Main Hall for the board of directors’ meeting.
Huh Woo-jin, a student of Political Science and Diplomacy Major, mentioned, “Director of Office of Planning department, Kim Jong-yoon was drunk. He insulted and hit the students. Students’ rights of participation were completely trampled underfoot. Students, who were supposed to be the main subject of the school, are out of consideration. I strongly denounce the behavior of the faculty towards students.”
