‘Yeonme-dong 4th Anniversary with MAPLE’ was held at the Yangjae AT Center in Seoul on July 17.
The stage consists of events for Maple users. From the main events ‘OX Quiz’ and ‘Maple Golden Bell’ to ‘Super Power Play’ and ‘Maple One Card’, it was full of stages that could not be passed by Maple Story.
The stage of passion that Miracle Day could not be stopped! I put the hot scene on the camera.
■ Yonsei University Maple Story Club Chairman ‘Kim Sang-hyun’ Interview
Q. Congratulations on holding ‘With MAPLE’ of Maple Clubs in Yonsei University. First of all, please introduce a simple self-introduction and club.
a. Hello, this is Kim Sang-hyun, president of Maple Story Club. He majors in economics as 17th student at Yonsei University as a present life (real life), and he is raising the Luna Server 272 Aran Example character.
Yonsei University Maple Story Club (hereinafter referred to as Yeonme-dong) was formed on March 30, 2018 under the motto of ‘Hyun Mail Chi’, which harmonizes between modern life and me life. Currently, 120 club members continue to exchange in and out of the game, sharing their experiences of playing Maple Story in their own way. As a meeting of Yonsei University students who enjoy Maple Story, we are aiming to lead the settlement of the right game culture that harmonizes the game and academics under the value of mutual respect and sound game use, and to cultivate a desirable community spirit.
Q. Yeonme-dong is celebrating its 4th anniversary. I am curious about the testimony.
a. This event is the 4th anniversary, but in fact, the event is the second. The Corona has been canceled for the second and third anniversary, and it will be held as the 4th anniversary immediately after the first anniversary. As I endured for three years, I decided to hold this event, and this year, I wanted to create an event that many people can enjoy as they received a lot of support from the first anniversary. Many people are very grateful for their interest in our event.
Maple Story celebrates its 19th anniversary this year. It would be nice to be able to continue its history for a long time like Maple Story.
Q. Is there a reason or goal for planning a large event?
a. Whenever I tell my friends that I am the chairman of Yeonme-dong, the reaction that comes back is’ What are you doing in Yeonme-dong? Catch the boss together? ‘ Maple Story was a game without a good cooperative content or a competitive content, so it was hard to tell what kind of club we are and what the club is doing with the name of the game alone.
Therefore, I decided to solidify the identity of the club, and I decided to proceed with the event because it was a means of holding both the goals and identity of the club mentioned above.
In addition, the general director said, I want to make a game that can be enjoyed with my family. I think this event, which is composed of a daily theme park, is the most appropriate factor in what you said. It would be nice to have many families enjoying the elements of Maple Story on-site and knowing the charm of Maple Story.
We hope that our event will be a little help to Maple’s goal.
Q. Is there any particular concern at this event?
a. I was most concerned about dichotolating the event so that I could fit the taste of many people.
The first part of the event was the most concerned about the fun of participating in the fun of seeing. During the last anniversary event, we planned to focus on the fun of seeing the majority as much as possible. However, there are many people who have left the reviews that they prefer to try themselves rather than seeing. We paid the most attention to the content circulation rate and the number of acceptable people, and we wanted to create an event that can be enjoyed by more people by adding booth content in addition to the existing main contents.
Part 2 concentrated on the performance. In the performance, we will hold a Maple Story Concert, which is made by college students by utilizing the characteristics of university clubs. The orchestra, band performances, and special guests’ celebration performances were designed to satisfy those who came to the scene as much as possible.
The event is divided so that we can enjoy the event according to our taste, and we will hold the event to suit the taste of many people as much as possible.
Q. What if there were some things that were proud or difficult during the event or preparation?
a. Nine Yeonme-dong Management and 27 people prepared for this event. Many people have been together, so there are many fresh and good opinions. I had a great pleasure in the process of executing the opinions and contents presented and determining whether it was fun or not fun.
On the other hand, there were many different opinions. There were many big and small issues, such as the sacrifice of the club’s characteristics for fun, and what is suitable for ‘us’ events. Many meetings were held overnight to resolve their opinions. Nevertheless, there seems to be a better event because of the process of expressing and coordinating their opinions.
Q. I’m curious about the future plan.
A. First of all, the internal plan is to continue the Mina dinner and online competitions that you have done so far to promote the socialist members’ fellowship. The external plan is to hold an offline event that many people can enjoy together to achieve the goal of the club mentioned above and to solidify the identity.
But this is only a hope, and if you face a monetary problem, the offline event becomes very opaque. I don’t think I will be able to be lucky to be supported by a good company like the Veristor I sponsored this time. Therefore, although it is not supported by the issue of equity, it is my goal to someday to open the event with Nexon’s recognition and official support.
Q. Thank you for holding a good event for Maple users. Finally, if you have something you want to say, please freely.
A. Maple Story users, such as the CORONA 19, as well as the refunds, are those who have overcome many hardships and adversity inside and outside the game. For this reason, we have worked more carefully and planned an event that can be satisfied with many people. I hope this event will be a little comforting for them. We look forward to your interest in Yeonme-dong. thank you!
