Today is the final round of the training.

It's the Mt. Buphwa race.

According to our tradition,

candidates who can run up and

back down the mountain in one hour

will be accepted into the university.

But those who fail will be denied

entrance for lack of physical competence.

Those who fail to reach the top

will also be denied entrance.

Run with all your might.


Yes, ma'am.

Get set.

Watch your step.

Hey, help me.

Hurry up.

Get down.

What happened?

I fell down running.

And I sprained my ankle.

Gi-jun PARK assisted me all the way.

Please accept him

Plus I don't lack

physical competence either.
