Ewha Holds the 2022 Yoon Hoo-Jung Unification Forum
Ewha Holds the 2022 Yoon Hoo-Jung Unification Forum Ewha Womans University held the “2022 Yoon Hoo-Jung Unification Forum” at the Lee Sam-bong Hall of the ECC building at 2 p.m. on October 6 (Thu.). The forum, which marks its ninth anniversary since its inaugural session in 2014, has been prepared as a venue for different generations to discuss a new vision for unification under the theme of “Re-imagining Unification.” The event began with opening remarks by Ewha President Eun Mee Kim and congratulatory remarks by Unification Minister Kwon Youngse, followed by an award ceremony for the pre-event “Re-imagining Unification Contest,” which aimed to inspire younger generations to take an interest toward and build consensus on the necessity for unification. The first part of the event featured the screening of a special edition of the documentary film The Children Gone to Poland, directed by and starring Chu Sang-mi, followed by a conversation with the director. Director Chu posited her belief that the teachers featured in the documentary were able to take care of Korean orphans with love and dedication despite the different racial backgrounds, because the children had reminded them of their painful memories from the Second World War, and emphasized, “Wounds can be healed by others who also bear wounds.” She also noted, “I hope this film provides an opportunity to reflect on our attitude towards young North Korean defectors, who are also Koreans, just like us. I believe we can encourage the re-imagining of unification through the power of the arts and cultural content.” In the second part, the forum presented the results of a survey titled “Ewha Womans University undergraduate students’ perceptions of inter-Korean unification,” which investigated students’ perceptions of unification, the inter-Korean relationship, North Korea, and North Korean defectors, followed by a roundtable discussion on the topic of “Re-imagining Unification” with President Eun Mee Kim, student winners of the aforementioned contest, and Professor Seok Hyang Kim of the Department of North Korean Studies. The young student panelists freely shared their views on the subjects of the prize-winning projects such as Generation MZ’s perceptions of unification, cultural exchanges, and inter-Korean forestry cooperation as well as unification. The forum has been providing opportunities to listen to opinions of prominent figures and experts, and this year’s event was especially meaningful as students participated in the event and presented their imaginative visions for unification that may have eluded older generations. President Kim remarked, “I hope that this event opens the door for many more opportunities for younger and older generations to come together and discuss the issue of unification.”

Hyo-jin So (English Language & Literature, graduating class of 2021), Bo-mi Park (Economics, graduating class of 2018), So-yeon Jeong (Social Welfare, graduating class of 2022), and So-yeon Park (French Language & Literature, incoming class of 2014), who earned the honor of being final successful candidates, will be appointed as diplomats after a year of training at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy. The Ewha Career Development Center (President Il Hyun Jo) has been actively promoting the entry of Ewha family members into public posts by operating many specialized programs offered by the university, such as professor-prepared mock tests, test reviews, interview guidance, and mentorship programs, led by the Guiding Committee for the National Public Service Examination Preparation Team (Chairperson Chung Lae Cho). With this continued support, Ewha has enjoyed the reputation of being one of the top universities in terms of producing successful candidates in the state examinations, such as the youngest successful candidate of the Foreign Service State Examinations in 2013, the first-place successful candidate of the Legislative Service Examination for general administrative positions and the Administrative Service Examination for education administrative positions in 2015, three final successful candidates for the 2016 Diplomatic Service Examinations, the first-place successful candidate of the Administrative Service Examination for financial and economy positions in 2016, and the first-place successful candidate of the 2020 National Public Service Examination for Grade V Positions for education administrative positions, the successful candidate who passed both the Legislative Service Examination and the Open Competitive Examination for National Public Service for Grade V Positions, and the first-place successful candidates for the grade V general administrative and education administrative positions, thereby cementing the school’s status as a major institution that is leading the “female boom” in the state examinations.
