The Night of Each Department, which has not been held for three years due to COVID-19, will finally be held again. The Night of Each Department is an event where a subject related to their department is selected and presented as a play. This year's lineup includes the Department of Korean Language & Literature, the Department of Japanese Language & Literature, the Department of French Language & Literature, and the Department of History.
The Korean Literature Night held by the Department of Korean Language & Literature begins on November 23rd at 6pm. The program consists of singing, dancing, and poetry recitation, and the play, ‘Suspicious Detective Agency,’ which ranks in Daehak-ro’s theater rankings, will be presented. In particular, the poem to be presented in the poetry recitation is meaningful because it is a poem written by oneself. Park Geun woo, a freshman in the Department of Korean Language & Literature, leading actor in, ‘Suspicious Detective Agency,’’ said, “It was difficult because of inexperienced acting, in the beginning while practicing the play. However, the more we practiced, the more the acting quality of our students increased. As a viewing point: the proposal scene. Therefore, I hope that many people will come and tell us how our play was.”
The Japanese Literature Night held by the Department of Japanese Language & Literature begins on November 25th at 6pm. The program consists of singing and dancing related to Japan, which will be performed, and the play, 'Akabane Counseling Center,' will be presented in Japanese. The play is a story of Sakuragi, a materialist solver, growing internally by accepting requests from ghosts, and unlike other departments, it is characterized by a new script, not the original version. Lee Eun ji, Student President, Department of Japanese Language & Literature, said, "The students are all preparing diligently, everyone is suffering from difficulties in the progress. We are all working together for a good performance, so there may be some shortcomings, but if you have the time, please come, and see the results of our efforts.”
The French Literature Night held by the Department of French Language & Literature begins on November 30th at 6:30 p.m. The program will feature a chanson performance and a play "Beauty and the Beast," in French. The play and chanson are conducted based on the French language learned by the students, showing unity among students and planning intentions to arouse interest in French. Both the play and the chanson were taught by a French exchange student to make French accents and pronunciation like the local ones. Kang Kyung yeol, Student President of the Department of French Language & Literature, said, "Although students may lack French proficiency, I think they are sincere and doing their best in their attitude towards French. We will present prizes through a lottery from time to time, so we ask for your participation."
The Historian’s Night held by the Department of History begins on November 17th at 6pm. As for the program composition, a performance with the motif of the King of Mask Singer and a play, 'Your History,' with the theme of March 15th will be presented. For the play, the Department of History received script support and advice from the 3.15 Commemoration Association and the 3.15 Art Center Director Moon Jong geun. Jang Dong woong, a third-year student in charge of the Historian’s Night, said, “The March 15th Independence Movement is an important event in modern history, so we chose it as the theme. As it is integral to the history of Korea, it will be easier to understand when you learn the prior knowledge of 3.15 and watch the play.”
All departments will not set admission fees in order to induce large numbers of spectators to participate. The organizers of the Humanities Night are targeting high school students who wish to major in the College of Humanities, the parents of the students running the event, and students from other departments, who are interested in this event. We wish all departments preparing for the performance a successful completion of the event.
