Though they are now gone, it is with deep hope that the memories of these events will last and continue to inspire today's Ewhaians to bring back Ewha's unique and creative festival events to life in the future.
Athletic tournaments were the very first events to be organized for the May Festival. Faculty and student teams gathered at the gymnasium and played tennis or ping-pong. The purpose of having these sports events was to develop students physical strength.
Play & Drama Performances
Creative and literary Ewhaians had a long tradition of performing plays and dramas for the May Festival. Plays such as ?ride & Prejudice, ?an-dai Nori, a traditional Korean mask play, ?hoon Hyang and Lee Do Ryung, and ?omeo & Juliet were put on mostly by Literature department students for the entertainment of fellow Ewhaians.
The May Queen, Homecoming Queen, and Alumnae Queen were not the only queens selected during Ewha? festival. For a short while, Ewhaians chose a ?iss Yoo Kwan-soon. The purpose of the event was to praise the patriotic death of Yoo Kwan-soon, a monumental female figure who died for the Independence of Korea.
