[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]The hair war is not overReading June 18th’s J-Style (“For Students, hair length is point of stress”), Korean teenagers can again heartily reaffirm the wretchedness of school life. But I see the current state of hair regulations in a much more optimistic way.
Most schools in Seoul have loosened their restrictions on students’ hair. However, the war is not yet over. Outside Seoul, there are many conservative teachers who forcefully cut students’ hair. With more passionate activism from teenagers, we can see a freer, more democratic society, a place where anachronistic values are scrapped.
