Sitting at the new desk as newly elected Editor-in-Chief of The UOS Times, I started my job with thousands of feelings in my heart and endless thoughts in my head. Firstly, of course, it is too mundane to our loyal readers, but I must say that I thought it is a great honour and privilege to take charge of this great magazine with such a long tradition. I even worked and trained during the last year, but I know this job and following the footsteps of my great predecessors - like former Editor-in-Chief Choi Young-eun - requires far more than I have.

However, the thought of my own qualifications is not the only burden I feel in my deepest heart. The fear of the power of words makes this job much harder. We are living in a world where the word has great power. Globally, a continuing war of words between the leaders of the U.S. and North Korea has recently brought a dark war cloud towards the Korean Peninsula. From time to time, we see faulty news coverage that brings an individual's life to disaster, and sometimes, at the other end, one fair, just news investigation will open a new chapter in a brave new world. As journalists, we must face this dangerous material in a harsh environment. Every day, it makes our writing pens heavier and heavier.

Nonetheless, I am confident that I can play this role with the combined knowledge and wisdom of my great colleagues at The UOS Times. This time, luckily, I can receive enormous help from experienced reporters and other junior reporters. Vice-Editor-in-Chief Jung Jae-in, Reporter Hong Sol-eui, and Shin Gi-sung were also promoted this semester, and if you go to the “Chit-Chat” page, you can see other brilliant fellows got the position of Junior Reporter. Together, we will write and report worthy and qualified news to the community of this university. We tread gently on the matter of dealing the words, yet we will do our best to report fairly. So, dear readers, please read our magazine with generous hearts and always scold us if we ever seem to be in disarray or if we are ever unfair.

Now, let us begin the 144th edition! We present many interesting topics for this issue. You can see how well students of the University of Seoul (UOS) are feeding themselves in our “Cover Story”. In “Society”, we inquire about social perceptions of introvert and extrovert tendencies. You can look into other students’ vacations through the “Campus News” article. In “Focus on UOS”, we introduce the Czech Technical University in Prague, one of the most popular universities for students who want to participate in exchange programs. Also, in the latter half of “Focus on UOS”, we have interviewed a counselor at the Student Counseling Center, where you can find comfort and help on various problems. In this issue’s “People” kicker, readers can learn how private YouTubers work, and you can get help scheduling picnic for autumn when you read “The Place” and the “Review”. In our “Do You Know?” section, we use a few of Charles Dickens’s works to share some secrets of how writers create. We hope you enjoy this autumn issue!
