Write for Rights
Recall your school days. Do you remember the class discussions to plan for a good year with new friends and teachers? What were the meetings like? In general, students freely exchange suggestions about changes they wish to see in class and rules made accordingly. A meeting similar to those class discussions is operating nationally. It was first created on the official Cheongwadae website as ‘The National Petition Board’, which is a portal for South Korean citizens to have their voices heard by the government. The platform immediately attracted the attention of the people. However, the more attention it received, the more problems it created.
The Power of Solidarity towards the Future of Laborers
A loud unified roar fills the air. It is the voice of temporary employees who are treated differently than the regular workforce. Wearing red vests and placards, their struggle may seem insignificant; however, some students are standing with them. SMT interviewed students who stand together with temporary employees. Mannyeonseol, the union for temporary employees at Sookmyung Women's University, listens to the plight of temporary workers and strives to create a better future for laborers.
Cinema for Cinema
What is the first image that comes to mind when you hear editor-in-chief of a magazine? Most people might think of a charismatic figure who wears sharp suits and leaves strict comments like Miranda Priestly played by Meryl Streep in “The Devil Wears Prada (2006)”. Well, one editor-in-chief strays far from this typical stereotype. He wears Star Wars sweatshirts and reminds people of “The Post (2017)”, another film starring Meryl Streep. As editor-in-chief of one of the last print movie magazines in Korea, he works passionately and responsibly. SMT reporters met Ju Sung-chul, the Editor-in-Chief of CINE21, to learn more about being a professional movie journalist and the key to CINE21’s longevity as the sole print magazine left thriving in Korea.
