At a recent film festival in Seoul, Hidden Bag provided “healing kits” for young people wishing to challenge “never-ending competition” and “education-based limits”.

本周,来自他所在党派的一名议员提出了一项立法提案,以延长公务员以及国有企业的“盲目招聘”程序,即申请者只能通过标准化考试,而不能由他们的学术成绩来决定,国有企业也是如此。

The bill's author is also proposing an amendment based on another oddity of Ms Jung's admission: she scored badly in her written exam, but was given full marks for the interview.
