Chosun Joongang Communcations, North Korea’s only broadcasting station, announced that North Korea has succeeded in carrying out a third nuclear test on February 12th. This public release has initiated different responses and diplomatic measures from each neighboring country and nuclear power states. Former Presdient of South Korea, Lee Myungbak, has described the period of tolerating North Korea’s changes as “the lost ten years.” South Korean government is now issuing two new methods of standing in North Korea’s path. One is to launch a preemptive attack. Kim Gwangjin, Minister of the National Defense, announced that “If there is any sign of North Korea using Nuclear weapons, we will strike first.” Another plan is the “Regime Change” approach, where the leader of North Korea is separated from the citizens, and a down-up reform is conducted amongst the people.

On the way to SMU, you pass some mysterious buildings over and over. Some of you might notice them and start having question, but almost of you have little interests about them. These buildings are out of main campus (The 1st Campus & The Foundation Campus) and look like one of common buildings among a large number of cafes, shops and residential area in the whole district Chungpa-dong. However each of them has SMU’s logo on their entrance sign board, so it says that they belong to SMU undoubtedly.
