<The Beginning of Regional Development: Course Opening Ceremony Held for ‘Sejong Studies’ of Sejong United Liberal Arts College>

On March 7, a course opening ceremony for Sejong United Liberal Arts College’s ‘Sejong Studies’ was held at Hongik Art Hall in Hongik University Sejong Campus. Cooperatively supervised by Korea University, Hongik University, and the Sejong City Human Resource Development Lifelong Education Institute, the Sejong Studies lecture is to be conducted by well-known professors from each field. Sejong Studies is a practical study that shares the diverse meaning of Sejong City and contributes to making the region a better place to live.

At the course opening ceremony, Sejong City Mayor Lee Chunhee delivered a congratulatory message, saying, “Sejong means ‘the best of the world’ in Korean. I hope for Sejong City’s eternal development with the wisdom and sincerity of many people. Along with that, this city should be developed based on citizen participation. I hope this city was not just named after King Sejong, but that it becomes a city that contains his soul, spirit, and wishes, as well.

 

 

After the opening ceremony, author Kim Sungdong started the first lecture with the theme of, ‘The Beauty of the Korean Language in the Novel, ‘Guksoo(국수)’.’ He emphasized that, “The spirit and mind are alive only when language is properly alive, and the Korean language plays a significant role in delivering that spirit and mind.” After that, he told a story about hope born in despair based on his experience.
