The bulletin board beside the West Gate is currently covered with campus wall posters of various opinions regarding the anti-extradition protests in Hong Kong. As the posters are increasing in number day by day, the conflict between contrasting camps—supporters and opponents of Hong Kong protests—has been escalating within Korea University (KU) campus.

The campus wall posters started to simultaneously multiply after a poster supporting Hong Kong protests had been deliberately damaged three times on November 11. The damaged poster, titled “Support Hong Kong Protests!”, had been posted by the Workers’ Solidarity KU Branch. After the damage was discovered, KU Student Union (KUSU) put up a poster strictly warning KU students against causing any damage to the posters. KUSU stated that as the West Gate board represents an area with guarantees of free expression, all opinions must be respected. Subsequently, posters expressing opinions toward the Hong Kong protest held by individual students and organizations have accumulated across the West Gate. 

As additional campus wall posters are continuing to be posted, Hong Kong protests remain to be a controversial matter within KU.
