During this period, the continuous efforts of students, professors, and out-of-power politicians who opposed the government's policy to enforce an indirect presidential election system led to the amendment of the Constitution to a direct presidential election system and the liberalization of schools. This influenced Chung-Ang University’s Undergraduate Schools in that students demanded the democratization of the school management and the development of the school, the most important related move of which was to establish the Medical Campus. Students occupied the main administration building to stress their points.
Since Dr. Hee-Su Kim became the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the school closed its contract to purchase a piece of property at Gaepo-Dong and planned a long-term development strategy. As a bogus organization called the Committee of the Struggle for Conscience made and circulated false documents, the situation became worse when students sided with it.
Eventually, Congress even dealt with the issue, and eventually, the whole plan was forcibly modified.
