On September 4, the Political Science and International Relations (PSIR) Department’s 49th Mock Assembly was held at the Inchon Memorial Hall. Three sophomore assistant administrators and 26 freshman members put on an academic play on the topic of “Development of Party Politics and Civil Initiative Constitutional Amendment.”
Park Se Won (’15, PSIR), the President of PSIR Student Council, expressed in opening remarks, “The 49th Regular Assembly of the Republic of Anam has made various attempts with this play. Not only does it reflect on the impeachment of Park Geun-hye and this year’s Rose-election, the play also tries to convey a message on how the Korean politics should pave the way for more reforms.”
The play contains several satires mocking the current state of the political arena. The first part of the play critically depicts last year’s social and political situation, while the second part focuses on the issue of constitutional amendment. The assembly then suggests unique solutions for the Korean politics from the perspective of university students.
