Keimyung University's name is derived from the Chinese character 啓明 (Qǐmíng), which can be interpreted as the process of bringing light or clarity, metaphorically referring to the spreading of knowledge and wisdom. This combination suggests the act of enlightening others or being enlightened, reflecting a general sense of intellectual and spiritual enlightenment. It can also have connotations of intellectual awakening or the dawn of knowledge. Please read more about the meaning of the related Chinese characters here.

啓明 (Qǐmíng) can also be translated as the planet Venus, especially in the context of classical Chinese astronomy and poetic or literary usage, where it refers specifically to Venus as the morning star. In Chinese, Venus is often called 啓明星 (Qǐmíngxīng), where 星 (xīng) means "star", but it's not the most common modern term for the planet. In modern Chinese, Venus is more commonly called 金星 (jīnxīng).

📷  My Hobby: Photography

Photography is something that I am highly interested in. Although I do not consider myself a professional photographer, I am constantly improving. I shoot with my two Nikon DSLR cameras the majority of the time. I use Google Maps to share my photos, and they've received over three million views. Some of my photos can also be seen on Pixabay, and a few of them have been used in media articles. Please contact me at ziatdinov@kmu.ac.kr if you are interested in photography and want to share your thoughts and experiences. You may see some of my photographs in the "Photography" part of my website.
