There is a specialist for politics and the National Assembly who garaduated from the UOS. The very alumnus is Jeong Ji-hwan, a representative reporter of a weekly political magazine, (Yeouido Press). How were his school days and vision? NEWS@UOS met him in Yeouido on September 20.

Q: First of all, please introduce yourself.
A: I entered the University of Seoul (UOS) in 1984 and I majored as a student of the Dept. of English Language & Literature.

Q: What was your matter of concern throughout school years?
A: At that time, my greatest concerns were `literature` and `democratization`. I had wanted to be an author from the time I was a middle school student. So I steadily read a number of books and wrote some essays by myself.
As I said at the beginning, I was interested in Korea`s democratization. Since the 1980`s social situation was confused because of dictatorship, many of the younger generation (university students) were fighting for Korea`s democratization. At that time, I was at the forefront of the group of those UOS students who wanted to overthrow the dictatorial government.

Q: Why did you become a journalist?
A: I thought if I became a journalist I could combine `literature` and `movement`. So I decided to be a reporter and entered monthly magazine (Mal) before working for the (Yeouido Press). Working on (Mal), I accumulated ability and experience.

Q: You are working as a representative reporter of a weekly magazine (Yeouido Press). Please introduce (Yeouido Press) to us.
A: (Yeouido Press) is a basically political magazine. However, we concentrate on the National Assembly and policy itself, unlike other main daily papers that cover superficial news. There are news media such as (Roll Call) and (The Hill) that monitor the congress. We aim to be Korea`s version of (Roll Call)

Q: Who are the main readers of (Yeouido Press)?
A: On account of the political theme of our magazine, most of our readers are people who are working in the political world, like administrators, assemblymen or party men. Besides these, journalists, businessmen and scholars also subscribe to (Yeouido Press)

Q: There will be a presidential election at the end of the year. Do you have anything to say to your juniors in school?
A: Above all, I hope that the younger generation will judge consciously and choose reasonably, away from some huge news media`s information. Holding your own opinion is the most important attribute.
