During summer break, all SMT reporters gather to watch the movie, ‘The Jungle Book.’  The movie is a based on the novel ‘Jungle Book’ by Nobel Prize winner Joseph Rudyard Kipling.  Numerous nations have turned the novel into various movie genres.  Unlike most books turned into movies that received negative reviews, this one was different.  The movie caught the eyes of moviegoers with its advanced computer-generated imagery.  The 17.5 million dollars (about 200 billon won) was well utilized to create over 70 species of animals and a believable jungle on the screen.  In addition to the impressive imagery, people were attracted to the movie because of its star-studded cast and director.  It was directed by Jon Favreau and stared Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, and Scarlett Johansson. 
The movie followed the book’s story.  Abandoned after an accident, baby Mowgli is adopted by a pack of wolves after being found by the wise panther Bagheera.  One day, Mowgli becomes the target of the fierce tiger, Shere Khan who hates humans.  Bagheera realizes Mowgli must return to his own kind in the nearby man-village.  On route to the village, Mowgli meets Baloo the bear.   Baloo takes the young Mowgli under his wing and convinces him that living in the jungle is best for him.  One day Mowgli learns that his adopted wolf father has been killed by Shere Khan.   Mowgli faces Shere Khan and uses the elusive and deadly red flower-fire-to end Shere Khan’s life and secure peace for all in the jungle.
I was deeply moved by the final movie scene.  The pack of wolves and Mowgli proudly voice their life moto “For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.”  I have read this direct line in Joseph Rudyard Kipling’s novel before, but it was still powerful to hear it spoken aloud.  After becoming editor-in-chief,  I endeavored to be a good leader and create a better environment for my fellow colleagues, but sadly, I failed.  Though one month has passed, I have yet to escape the weight of my title.  I found myself treating my colleagues badly because I was disappointed in myself.  In spite of my poor behavior, all SMT staff never gave up on me as their leader and followed me.  One member even said, “It’s just as I thought.  You’ve let the title go to your head.  "I realized the need to follow the slogan of the wolf pack.  Therefore, I have proposed a new The Sookmyung Times’ slogan.  Throughout my time as editor-in-chief, it will be “For the strength of The Sookmyung Times is its members, and the strength of its member is The Sookmyung Times.  ”I would like to extend a very sincere appreciation to my all my colleagues: Culture section editor Jieun, Women section editor Sieun, Hyun-A, Minji, and Jaeyeon.  I promise to do my best for SMT and our readers and spend the rest of my sojourn at SMT proudly.
