How satisfied are people who live busy lives? It is not easy to live a repetitive everyday life without any special moments. Then, how do some people live a life without regret? For me, regret means that I was capable of doing something better at the time, or I was capable of making better decisions but didn’t. It’s best for me to make my own decisions in every moment of my life and not to regret those decisions. However, I’m not suggesting that the readers make hasty decisions.
 
Everyone may have heard the question once: “What is your dream?” Some people may be able to answer this question immediately, while others may not. As for me, I am the latter one. Since childhood, people have always asked, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” or “What is your dream?” I had a clear dream in the past. My childhood answer was, “I want to be a diplomat representing Korea!” However, as time went by, this answer became less certain.
 
Since last summer, Japan has implemented regulations on some export items for South Korea. Most of the semiconductor parts, which are South Korea’s major export items, are dependent on imports from Japan, but Japan announced export regulations for those parts. This has deepened the conflict between the two countries.
 
I have worked with CBT for two years. I have written various articles since I joined CBT. However, this is the first time for me to write the Reporter’s View, which expresses a reporter’s thoughts, and I decided to write about my life. Since I was twenty years old, I have pursued a goal. The goal is to be a mature person by becoming mentally independent.
 
The Republic of Korea divides its powers into three parts: legislative, administrative, and judicial. Each part has the task of keeping the others in check. If this separation is not maintained correctly, a dictatorship and/or corruption of public officials can occur easily. That is why the founding of a bureau to investigate the corruption of high-ranking government officials has emerged. The bill has consistently been pursued since the late 1990s, but it was never passed.
 
I have felt a burden that I have to succeed early in life. I have heard that one should do well in school and that one has to be a great person. I also heard that one has to go to the best universities, and then one can get a decent job. I didn’t hear these rules from my parents. Society and the media are the ones who have repeated these guidelines.
 
If people watch the news these days, they can see much news about the current government. Thanks to the fast-developing technology, people can quickly hear about social issues. This increased accessibility has given people a chance to pay more attention to politics. Young people are also very interested in politics and speak their voices. As many people are interested in politics, there are various attitudes toward it. Some young people have withdrawn their support from the incumbent administration.
 
On March 1st, 2019, Korea celebrated the 100th anniversary of the March First Independence Movement and held many events. Also, Koreans offered a silent tribute to the freedom fighters’ struggle and their spirit. Under the 36 years of colonization, Korea suffered and lost so many things. Even though 100 years have passed, many problems have not been solved yet. One of them is the palaces in Seoul.
 
This winter, the drama ‘SKY Castle’ was loved by many people. The drama showed the dark side of entering university. One of the most surprising scenes was where a boy did not meet the expectations of his parents but rebelled and walked the way he wanted. What was it that made the children so obsessed with entering university?
 
Recently, a famous drama called ‘SKY Castle’ ended with tremendous popularity. The reasons why ‘SKY Castle’ was so popular were the skill of the actors and the exciting storyline, but I think that the biggest factor is that it reflected the reality of Korean society well. In the drama, one student tells a lie that she entered Harvard University because of her parents’ desire for her to go to a prestigious university.
 
In November, a fight broke out between men and women at a bar near Isu Station. Even before the official investigation took place, a petition for the punishment of the men was posted on the government’s website. More than 200,000 people quickly supported the petition. The incident soon spread through various media platforms, and the public demanded strong punishment for the men. Over time, some people also claimed that the men had been insulting the women first.
 
The result of a police investigation of the cheating scandal which happened at Sook-myung Girls’ High School came out. A teacher showed answers from a school test to his twin daughters. The teacher leaked the answers to help his daughters get a good grade. Suspicion was aroused based on the fact that the daughters were the only students who checked the wrong answer for an easy question. Actually, the answer that the twins got from their father was a teacher’s mistake.
 
What makes people busy? What makes people wander? I’ve always set my goals every day. While doing many routine things, I also started doing new things. Things that I started with some encouragement were crushing my life. There were times when I couldn’t handle things that I had to do because I was pressed for time. I had no time to spend with my friends. When I was in the crowd, I forgot who I was and became just like them.
 
After I became a university student, I could choose many things unlike when I was a high school student. However, I felt that choosing something was beyond my capacity as time passed because I realized that whatever I chose, the result wasn’t what I thought it would be. Also, regardless of the results, I have to take responsibility for my choices.
 
It is the season of fall foliage. The vivid colors of autumn leaves would summon numerous visitors and tourists so as to flaunt their vibrant hues pompously saturating the mountains and hills throughout the country. The cool and crisp weather of October would captivate and fascinate the seasonal pilgrims even more with the fascinating colors of nature, so the whole nation would be crowded with a myriad of mountain-hikers who are so eager to delve into the brilliant pigments of the season.
 
When I was a high school student, I was afraid to walk at night. I was so scared to take a step into the darkness where I could not see, and I got goosebumps from the slightest sound around me. I had a fear of the dark. As I grew older, I had to walk through the dark streets often. It was an ordeal for me to go home after school or watch a movie late at night. I hated the fact that I was so scared.
 
The drama My ID Is Gangnam Beauty, which contains realistic insights on plastic surgery, recently ended. When I watched this drama, I had many questions like, ‘Have I been living in a world without prejudice against plastic surgery?’ I thought that the reason for plastic surgery was simply ‘satisfaction with oneself’. However, this drama introduced me to lookism.
 
Recently, there was a petition posted on the Blue House website to abolish the national pension, drawing the support of many people. The reason for this petition to arise is that ‘The National Pension Scheme’ was scheduled to be released on July 17 and that it would raise the age of national pension payments from 65 to 69. The public revolted against the news.
 
It is my last article as a CBT reporter. After starting with an interview as a junior reporter at the CBT in July 2016, I am ending my career as a reporter on September 2018. In all that time, I’ve seen and learned a lot. When I was writing my first article, it was very different from writing assignments in college.
 
Have you ever had a chance to recognize that Korean consume coffee more frequently than rice, the traditional staple food of Korea? According to Korea Health Statistics 2016, Korean drink coffee 11.3 times a week, which is more frequent than the consumption of kimchi (9.7 times a week), multigrain rice (8.1 times a week), and white rice (6.4 times a week).
