Skip to 2 minutes and 0 secondsso for that i am very grateful to each one of you for your active participation and engagement in this course. and i also learn a lot not only from developing and leading this course but also from watching you guys having conversation with each other over the issues regarding for example of rise of china and South Korea's foreign policy a mid of growing tension of competition between american pivoted Asia and the rise of china. so again for that i am very grateful to each one of you for your active participation and engagement with each other throughout this course. and i am pretty sure that my teaching assistance and mentors of this course who have some words to say to you.

Skip to 2 minutes and 51 secondsByeong-gune or Seung-in why don't you give some words to our learners. by engaging this course i could meet lots of people from various background and who hold different thoughts about interesting issues. it is for me that i felt it is some kind of future agora by feel with interesting discussions. i am really enjoy being part of that agora so thank you for your enthusiastic participation and i hope that we can meet again if we have any chance. hi. i am here to thank you for all of you guys for participating this class enthusiastically. especially for me it is a great experience and i learned a lot from your comments. especially from all around the world.

Skip to 3 minutes and 56 secondsespecially not from korea, china or us. also it was interesting to hear or see comments and your opinions from other countries. thank you. so as my teaching assistances point that out we all thank you for your fantastic contributions to this course and hopefully we will meet again in another course about south korea or about international relations of the asia pacific. and before wrapping this course up i want to make one point clear that i think we should remain very sensitive and even attentive to the complexity on the lining international politics of 21st century.

Skip to 4 minutes and 37 secondsprecisely because there is a complexity and even contingency deeply involved in the global politics so i believe we would be much better of the diverse array of the ideas even competing or conflicting ideas rather than single theoretical or analytical even numerative perspective. on that important note hopefully we will meet again in another course about south korea or about international relations of the asia pacific. and thank you again for your fantastic contribution to this course. we'd like to say thank you in korean altogether Gomap-sumnida(고맙습니다). thank you have a great day.

Thanks to learners

Congratulations on reaching the end of the course and thank you for your active participation.

In this section, I prepared the video with two teaching assistances to say a few words of appreciation and to wrap up the course.

First of all, I learned a lot not only from making and leading the course, but also watching you having a conversation about the issues covered. I am fully amazed at your various ideas and comments.

Second, I would like to make one point clear. I think we should remain very sensitive and even attentive to the complex phenomenon on the lining of international politics of 21st century.

On that important note, I hopefully want to meet again in another course about South Korea or international relations of Asia Pacific areas.

Have a great day and I wish you all the best in the future.
