Regarding Kim Gun-hee's master's and doctoral dissertation at Kookmin University, suspicions have been raised that the English translation was poor, or that the Internet article was fabricated.

When Kookmin University decided not to conduct this investigation because the statute of limitations for verification had passed, the Kookmin University Student Council strongly opposed it.

The basis for the statute of limitations for verification is that it "does not conform to the times."

After five days of general voting, the Student Council decided to take a joint action calling for a re-investigation by the school.

The overwhelming approval rate of 94.4%.

A civic group reported the president of Kookmin University to the prosecution for obstructing the verification of the thesis, and Kookmin University submitted its position and investigation plan on Kim's thesis to the Ministry of Education.

The Ministry of Education will review this and follow up.

Regarding Mr. Kim, a false work history controversy has also been raised.

The work experience Kim submitted to the university was not recorded in the Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education, and the name of the school was written incorrectly.
