Interview with Jungyeop Shin, Economics major from class of 2019.

What's the best thing you did after taking a leave of absence?

Amongst the many memories I've made, taking a trip to Wando was the best. I was actually having a busy life with all the courses and school activities last year, and travelling to a quiet place helped me lighten up. The soft waves and calm breeze made me forget all my worries. I especially miss the food there :(

How's work at school? What do you do?

Well… work is always tough. I assist exchange student and summer school programs in our school. The calls and emails piled up always leave me in despair, but assisting students and fellow workers is somewhat rewarding. I was actually supposed to quit my job this week but am stuck here because there are no applicants for my place. Anybody reading this, please apply for Yonsei OIA…

Weekends must be like gold to you..any exciting plans this month?

I should definitely cut down alcohol. My golden weekend is full of drinking. Other than that, I’m planning to quit my work at school and travel to Gunsan for a few days. It’s a privilege for students on a leave of absence. Of course, alcohol will be part of the journey as usual…
