What do a year and clock have in common? It’s that both consist of an amount of 12. One year is composed of 12 months, from January to December. Also, a clock consists of 12 hours counting from 1:00 to 12:00. So, what if I express one year with a watch? For example, the March issue of this magazine would represent from 1:00 to 3:00, and the last January issue would represent from 11:00 to 1:00. This tick-tock world feature is a one-year project, so in this issue, I will try to deal with the time from 1:00 to 3:00, both a.m. and p.m. I will check the features of these times, what people do at these times and what happened in the past at these times. Let’s read while thinking about what we do at these times.
A New Consideration about from 1:00 to 3:00
Do you know what is
happening at this time?
A.M. 01:00 ~ 03:00
The time from 1:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. is “chuksi” (the second of the 12 periods of a day). In the East, a day is divided into twelve zodiac symbols (十二支), each of which has a name. Chuksi is the second, and is symbolized by a bull. People commonly believe that ghosts haunt us most at midnight (12:00 a.m.), but on the contrary, ghosts haunt us most at chuksi because the negative aura is strong at this time.
Peak Number of Nate-on Users
At this time, Nate-on (a kind of internet messenger program) connection is at its peak. Why are the highest numbers of visitor connecting at this time? At this time you long for people, so you may access Nate-on and chat with friends. Also, there are a lot of friends who connect to it to sober up after drinking alcohol.
This is the time when the national anthem comes on TV. At this time, all the regular broadcasting stations play the national anthem. The broadcast of the day is closed by playing it. It is also the time when the station cleans up the day.
Free calls for couples
This is a time when free calls for a couple are possible. When you use the couple charge, your calls with your
sweetheart are free from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. By using this system, some couples talk until they sleep, even for hours.
P.M. 01:00 ~ 03:00
This is lunch time. There are many people who go out for lunch after the four classes. In the beginning of the school term, like nowadays, you can see the image of seniors who are surrounded by the freshmen going to treat lunch. It is also a time when a boss of a restaurant smiles
Lazybones, get up now!
It is time when people who oversleep get up on Sundays. If you’d been sitting at the
computer for a long time the night before, you’d wake up at this time.
The siesta is the traditional daytime sleep of Spain, as well as many Latin American countries under Spanish influence. It is a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after the midday meal. It is derived from the Spanish ruling class’ break time in the 16th century, the Spanish golden era. During this time, cars on the street decrease and even some government offices close up. Even during the Vietnam War, people had kept the custom of taking siestas. A brief nap after lunch is really delicious. For your refreshing afternoon, why don’t you take a nap?

CBNU radio broadcasting
CBNU UBS radio broadcasts every weekday from 1:00 p.m. to 1:50 p.m. It brings school tidings and introduces Geonjians’ stories. It is so nice that you can sit on a bench and be sentimental, listening to a radio broadcast carrying your story.
