    As a producer and a video journalist, I did a coverage on South Korea's zeal on college entrance exam. The video was published on November 15, 2018, the exact date of the nationwide test day. It was very significant work for me because I had opportunity to listen to what the teenage students really felt about studying endlessly which reflects the negative part of the Korean society.
