This issue, overall, felt very placid, which allowed me to read with a calm mind. This issue’s Cover Story made me think that it consisted of very good information, especially because I was eagerly anticipated to read about the topic, but at the same time disappointing at some points. First of all, specific data was the best part. I could see the main reasons that students want to go on an exchange program and the number of applicants to each continent, one of the things I wondered about the most. However, compared to negative aspects of the exchange program, positive points were vague.
Society provided me with various unknown information, which made me feel anger and self-reflection. The matter of sexual slaves that must be set right and be known justly was suitable as the topic of Society. The specific explanation on the concept of comfort woman or sexual slaves was good. The best part of the article was that it suggested what we can actually do.
I felt that a persuasive writing such as Cover Story is better when divided into two parts, just like this article. It was appropriate to connect half-tuition of UOS with exchange student program. Pointing out the problem regarding GPA distribution was sharp.
The correlation between the title and the content of Society was not obvious.
The picture of Shim grandmother used as the cover page was good. I watched the movie Big Picture, and it was a little disappointing that it was not dealt with in depth, relating to the article, and stopped at just introduction.
Overall quality of the articles in this issue was high. Especially, the cover page and articles’ layouts were adequate. However, I could see a few errors in editing or typos in this issue. The magazine would be in a better quality if more attention is paid to those minor aspects.
