For the ninth lecture with an invited author, hosted by the Main Library of UOS, Shin Dal-ja, who writes poems and essays, was chosen to present before UOS students. Her latest work is an essay book named A Mother and a Daughter, and she is currently the president of the Korean Poetry Association.

The lecture took place on May 22 at 3 p.m. in the conference room of the Natural Science Building. Although the lecture was supposed to last for three hours, it was shortened to two hours because she had to leave early. The title and the topic of her lecture was that deficiencies are advantages.

Shin started the lecture by saying that UOS was better than she had expected in that UOS students were fresh. However, because she liked to talk about the internal agony and suffering of human beings, she worried if we, university students, could fully understand all aspects of her works and the lecture. During the lecture, she explained specifically about what deficiency is to a human being. It is what one does not have, cannot have and gets criticized for not having. To make her point better understood by the students, she told them the story of her childhood at her present age of 71.

Students listening to the lecture especially liked the story of her first love, which she expressed as the first deficiency. To give shape to the topic, she suggested that longing is necessary. It meant that human beings lack some abilities and this makes them feel a sense of yearning, which finally ends up with the creation of something. If you have everything, you cannot create anything. That is why she argued that people need to love deficiencies. Other than this, she also emphasized the spirit of challenges and the love of oneself in the lecture. Furthermore, like a mother, she shared lessons with students that she learned throughout her life.
