Mother of XX!
First of all, I will have to say I am sorry. You are the one who I love the first and last. I wanted to say, 'let's do everything together now' praying on my knees to ask your forgiveness when I become a professor because living has been a constant hardship. I couldn't make it. I'm sorry. My lovely son XX and daughter XX. I've cared about them in my heart as if they are fragile. I'm a bad husband to make this decision. I love you. My last will is in the diary in the passenger's seat of the car.
And I want to tell you something. It is about professor ○○Cho. I'm committing a suicide due to stress. Please make him pay. It is as bad as an occupational accident. The trace of me being his slave is in my email and Korea Research Foundation lab, and in my will.
Please go to the nonregular workers' union at Chosun University and find out how to fight. All papers (about 54 papers) that I co-authored with Professor Cho or another assistant professor (his former student) are actually written only by me not with him. Even though it is hard, please erase their name and let it be known to the world. I ask for legal battle.
Professor Dong-Ae Kim. I'm sorry that I couldn't join the fight with you. One day money became an issue at the union of Chosun University, but I said money was not our purpose, so I had to go to the police station for questioning. I agree with you. Please help my wife. Please let the world know this relationship, 'the relationship of professor and student=subordinate relationship/professor=pig'. Professor Dong-Ae Kim, I respect you and I'm so sorry.
Alternative method, plead the case to the National Human Right Committee. Please do not mention or taught my son. He has been so good that I''ve never asked 'why did you do that?" in my life.
To President Myung-Park Lee. Korea is rotten. Isn't there a saying that education is a plan which spans a hundred years? I heard that a professor position is worth 150,000,000 won or 300,000,000 won. I was asked twice: 60,000,000 won Sunghwa University in Kangjin about two years ago, 100,000,000 won Hanse University about two months ago. It is rotten. I ask for investigation. Do not leave part-time lecturers as they are now. It is 21st century.
Motive them. Nobody can be a professor. Please oriented ability. I do not ask. Please copy this and send it to The Blue House.
I hate the world. I hate the academia of Korea!
1) Wife : I'm sorry, and I love you. But I wasn't a good husband telling you a burden of everyday life. I love you. I can't take the reality on my own any more. 2) Son and daughter : I really love you. I can't believe I have to do this to you. I was always thankful because you have been such nice kids. I can't believe this tragedy, but I want you to be strong.
3) To part time lecturers : Be strong. The day will come. 4) Team members of a study group: I'm sorry. I wanted to contribute to the group by writing a paper, but I lost my identity because my self-esteem and loyalty even as a slave is now gone. Thank you for everything.
5) Professor : Why do you always try to use me? Are you abandoning me because I lost my value as a slave? Am I a literati scholar in Chosun Dynasty? Why do you always try to put me away not giving me time to breathe? I was preparing to leave even if you don't do anything. I'm ashamed of myself serving you as my teacher.
There are 25 papers that I wrote with(?) you, and there are 20 proceedings that I presented with(?) you. There are also one(Na) doctoral degree dissertation that I wrote for your student, accredited journal at Korea Research Foundation(Na), four master degree thesis for your students(Jeong, An, Na, Kim) and four proceedings presented at Korea Research Foundation. This is the most number of papers since the beginning of higher education in Korea. Even so, you ignore me and trying to kick me out.
Don't you have family and brothers? Am I your servant? You told me not to work at a private institute ten years ago. You kept me from teaching at another university to make money. You used me as your slave and now you let me go? You can't do this to me. You're a wolf in a sheep's clothing. I've been debating over a year now. I've seen what you really are.
If you really love your students, why do you take advantage of your students? In a name of emeritus, are you still trying to play a role with your students' papers? Where and how much problems are in X student's proceeding? S/he worked on it for 6 to 7 months. You shouldn't have done that. I'm not your slave. I'm ashamed of it. You're a teacher and Christian.
6) To people who know me: I won't let your name known. Thank you. I'm sorry. I love you. My attempt to live as a scholar resulted in this fall. 7) To students : I'm terribly sorry. I wanted to take care of the grading, but I can't stand it anymore. I wish you the best. I'm sorry again. 8) Students' paper : They are in my office. 9) Car : The university will pay you 4 million won (it will be enough if you include the balance in my bank account. Please give the money from selling the car to the professor)
10) debt : Please give 10million won(for house) to x××. 11) I want to say I'm worry to the world. 12) To my mother and brothers : I'm really sorry. 13) To you again : I'm sorry
