Chloe Jundez, on the other hand, was lauded for her staunched position and convincing reasoning while punctuating every point with a friendly remark.

Other members of the SISC delegation were Nasrodin Bandong, Clarissa Chiang, Harim Choi, Alexandra Therese Derpo, In Wook Hwang, Jae Hyo Jang, Youn Sun Jang, Chae Eun Jin, Kee Hyun Kang, Mika Kasahara, Hyun Kim, Juyoung Kim, Won Bin Kim, Sun Gyu Kwon, Chan Hee Lee, Hye Jin Lee, Jun Hyuk Lee, Somin Lee, Hyung Jun Nam, Daisuke Rafol, Seung Min Song, and John Jake Worden.
