Merely said in passing, “Why don’t you try it? They only select girls,” led to her becoming one of the 2013 winners of Google’s Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship winners. An Hyesoo (AN) has always pursued opportunities in different areas and is not afraid to pioneer undeveloped paths. The Sookmyung Ti
What does insignificant mean to you? Do you make light of small things, regarding them as minor mistakes or common events in daily life? As Heinrich’s law shows ‘Insignificance is never insignificant,’ observing and discovering insignificance beautifies a person, making them unique. Thus, the Sookmy
"Action speaks louder than words." Although this phrase is widely used among many people, most people fear something new. However, this person has an open-mind when it comes to attempting groundbreaking challenges. As a representative of UnivTomorrow, he always encourages university students to se

The wind and the sun argued one day over which one was stronger. Spotting a man traveling on the road, they challenged each other to see who could get the man to take off his coat the quickest. The ha
In the summer of 1998, during the US Women’s Open Championship, a golf ball is hit into the very edges of a pond. It is the last hole that will decide the winner of the entire match, yet the ball is nowhere near it, barely holding over a few strands of grass before tumbling into the water. What should a player have done? She should have received penalty points and started all over again. What did Pak Seri do? She started to take her shoes off. At the age of 20, her barefooted swing brought her to victory in the 1998 US Women’s Open. She has won in 24 LGPA tours, 5 Major tournaments, and was the youngest player to have ever had her name in the World Golf Hall of Fame. Many female golfers, so-called Seri Kids, started to appear after Seri’s astounding achievements in golf history. Her character is allegedly known to be tough as nails, yet it is in this disposition that we can find a face we can look up to as a role model. The Sookmyung Times (SMT) would like to introduce the golf princess of Korea and sister to all, Pak Seri (SERI).
There was one weather caster who, instead of plainly saying “It will rain tomorrow,” used the words, “Do not hang out the washing tomorrow!” It is the very first female weather forecaster of Korea, Lee Iksun (LEE). After taking the KBS audition by chance and succeeding in getting the job, Lee’s popularity as a weather forecaster surmounted any famous celebrity back then. She was the definition of celebrity. What could have been her charm that brought the entire population to her side? She had once said that forecasting the weather “requires an abundance of sensibility and affection for people.” During the interview, just the mere question of what SMU meant to her brought tears to her eyes, as she spoke of how she loved each and every junior. Lee consistently shows a pure sensibility, in and out of work, that draws people towards her. Is this not reason enough?
What is your dream? There is a person who answered “Announcer” to this question for over ten years. She hosted a festival of universities in front of many people when she was only in middle school. Thirteen offcampus activities in two years, the youngest successful applicant for open recruitment of SBS announcer, and a model of Sookmyung University—those are words that come before her name. As you imagine, she is Jang Yewon (Jang), who became an announcer of SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System) in October. The Sookmyung Times (SMT) met Jang, who wants to be a “Wannabe Announcer. ”
