I was very impressed with her thought about freedom. She said in Korean young people will be punished if they argue with older people’s opinion. The condition will influence Korean young people’s the way of thinking because they have to be careful to not to argue older people’s opinion, and if so, Korean young people choose to “hide” their opinion and just follow older people’s opinion. The condition not only happens in Korean, but also in Indonesia, especially in Java, hehehe. She said that all of people have to push their selves to be as comfort as they think. No influence about making an opinion, no punishment about making a wrong decision, and be praised of their freedom.

Heum, ketika aku bertanya kepada Sangmi tentang hal ini, ia mengangguk tanda setuju. Dan ia mengatakan kalau pendapat Prof. Suk tidak bisa diterapkan sepenuhnya di sini. Tradisi “senioritas” yang sangat kental, bahkan lebih kental daripada di Indonesia menjadi batu penghalang yang sangat besar terutama bagi young Korean people untuk mengutarakan pendapatnya atau yang mengharapkan adanya kebebasan.

Satu hal lagi yang aku suka dari pendapat dia adalah “There are many ways to be success”, this is Prof. Suk’s quote I very love. She said that the opinion that says there is only one way to be success has to be changed! We have to be “spread out”! We have to make a lot of formula to be success. Multiple objectives? A lot of things to do? So many dreams? Why not? She said if you’re comfort doing a lot of things, just do it. If you like with your bunch of dream, just try to realize it. There is no limit in imagination. If someone stops dreaming, imaging their future, and never does what he/she dreams about, maybe there are no airplane, no mobile phone, no internet, no lamp, no international music concert, and no success off course.

Sayangnya bukunya masih dalam bahasa Korea. She told that the English version of her book will be release on February, entitled “A Light Inside”. She said the reason why the title of her English version’s book is not as a translation from her Korean book (its title should be “The World I Wanted to See). She said that the Korean title described the “outside”, the world, and the English title described the “inside”, finding a meaning inside you. Two of them cannot be apart separately, that’s why she wants to combined the “outside” and the “inside” of the meaning of life through her book. That was so beautiful and amazing thought.

Bagian kedua adalah tanya jawab. Peserta dapat melayangkan pertanyaan bia sms atau twitter @bookhouse1997. Aku sangat menunggu sesi ini, dan tentu saja aku kirim pertanyaan, via twitter. Sebenarnya ada banyak pertanyaan, namun karena masalah waktu jadi hanya beberapa pertanyaan yang dijawab. Aku kira si pembawa acara kurang bagus, maaf. Meski ia adalah seorang penulis juga, namun caranya membawa acara kurang sip lah kalau menurutku. Lagipula ia juga tidak bisa berbahasa Inggris dengan baik, dan parahnya ternyata Prof. Suk tidak bisa berbahasa Korea dengan lancar! Wow omo, baru kali ini aku tahu orang Korea tidak bisa berbahasa Korea, hahaha. So, karena harus berkomunikasi lewat interpreter, maka jalannya acara jadi tidak seru dan banyak “sing…” di mana-mana.

Secara overall seminarnya lumayan bagus, terutama bagi orang Korea karena membuka wacana tentang “kebebasan” dan “senioritas”. I really enjoy this seminar, pendapat yang keren, buku yang bagus, but not the host, hahaha. Sayangnya pertanyaanku tidak terbaca. Padahal… g apa-apa juga si, hahaha (I’ll keep it secret, hahaha).
