As if for me, who has only recently grown increasingly fond of netflixing, the latest installment in the Cloverfield franchise decided to pop up on the streaming platform, unlike the first two films, which showed in theaters.

Despite its “majestic rivers, superb volcanoes, peaceful lakes, and its skies of purple and gold”, like with everything else, the limelight of global media will only shine down when something negative can be said about the country.

I am sorry. I am very sorry to hear that the new KAIST president’s ambitions have been walled off by the student community. I am not sorry, however, to see another ill-presented dream get rejected by healthily alert students exercising their own rights. The presentation of the idea of the mandatory artificial intelligence (AI) classes could not have provoked the public’s cautionary antennae further.
