First Korean to become president of the Oxford Union

22 year old John Lee (이승윤) has been elected as the next president of the Oxford Union. The second-year Lee, studying politics, philosophy, and economics, is the first Korean student to become president of he prestigious debate club, Oxford Union.
Oxford Union, is a debating society in the city of Oxford, Britain, whose membership is drawn primarily but not exclusively from the University of Oxford. Founded in 1823, it is Britain's second oldest University Union (only the Cambridge Union Society is older), and has gained a worldwide reputation for the cut and thrust of its debate, proving a valuable training ground for many future politicians from Britain and other countries.
