《1988년 6월 8일 오후 2시》

8 Juni 1988 pukul 2 siang

《제24회 서울올림픽 개막을 100여 일 앞둔 어느 여름날이었다. 서울 도봉구 방학동에 자리한 서울소방학교에 취재진들이 속속 몰려왔다. 그날은 3월부터 석 달 넘게 진행된 제 1기 119 특별구조대의 교육이 끝나는 날이자, 우리나라 최초의 119 구조대 발대식이 있는 날이었다. 대부분 특수부대를 전역하고 들어온 대원들은 새로운 환경에서 다시 입게 된 제복과 베레모에 기분이 오묘해졌다. 떨리는 것도 잠시, 발대식이 진행되는 동안 대원들의 가슴엔 위험하고 힘들지만 사람을 구하는 일에 대한 사명감이 깊이 새겨졌다.》

소방 = 消防 artinya memadamkan kebakaran

취재진 = 取材陣 artinya kumpulan wartawan

Pada musim panas, sekitar 100 hari sebelum pembukaan Olimpiade ke-24 di Seoul, para wartawan berkumpul di Sekolah Pemadam Kebakaran Seoul yang terletak di Kelurahan Banghak, Kecamatan Dobong, Seoul. Hari itu adalah hari terakhir pendidikan tim penyelamat 119 pertama. Mereka telah menjalani pendidikan selama tiga bulan sejak bulan Maret. Sebagian besar anggota setelah meninggalkan pasukan khusus merasa aneh kembali memakai seragam dan topi di lingkungan yang baru itu. Kegugupan mereka terlihat ketika upacara, walaupun misi mereka berbahaya dan sulit, menyelamatkan nyawa selalu terpahat di hati.

화재 진압에서 인명구조까지》

화재 = 火災 artinya kebakaran

진압 = 鎭壓 artinya memadamkan

Dari memadamkan kebakaran sampai menyelamatkan nyawa

《1912년에 경성 소방서가 설치된 이후 소방서의 주 업무는 화재 진압이었다. 중간에 풍수해나 설해 등의 업무를 담당하던 때도 있었지만 소방서는 화재를 진압하고 경계, 예방하는 임무를 맡는 방향으로 발전해왔다. 1982년에 119 구급대가 편성되면서 화재진압 및 경계에 구급까지 담당하게 되었는데, 일선에서 희생정신이 강한 대원들을 선발하여 화재 현장에서 인명구조를 할 수 있게 했지만 어디까지나 화재 현장에 국한된 것이었다.》

소방서 = 消防署 artinya stasiun pemadam kebakaran

담당 = 擔當 artinya tanggung jawab, urusan

희생 = 犧牲 artinya pengorbanan

Sejak berdirinya Stasiun Pemadam Kebakaran Gyeongseong pada tahun 1912, tugas utama pemadam kebakaran adalah untuk memadamkan api. Ada kalanya mereka juga mengurusi badai, banjir, dan salju. Pada tahun 1982, paramedis 119 dibentuk untuk mengurusi kebakaran dan menyediakan pertolongan pertama pada saat kebakaran. Di barisan depan, awak pemadam dengan jiwa pengorbanan yang besar diseleksi untuk menyelamatkan nyawa di TKP.

《그러나 점차 국민들의 삶의 질이 높아짐에 따라 안전에 대한 욕구도 커져갔고, 80년대 들어 화재뿐만 아니라 각종 안전사고가 빈번해지자 구조의 영역을 넓혀야 할 필요성이 제기되었다. 결정적으로 세계의 이목이 집중될 88서울올림픽을 성공적으로 치르기 위해 고도의 전문기술과 체력을 가진 구조전문가를 양성해 운영해보자는 쪽으로 뜻이 모였다.》

Dengan perlahan-lahan meningkatnya kualitas hidup orang-orang, kebutuhan akan keamanan membesar, dan pada tahun 80an, banyak terjadi kebakaran. Agar Korea sukses menjadi tuan rumah Olimpiade Seoul 1988, yang akan menyita perhatian dunia, para ahli dan yang memiliki stamina berlatih untuk memadamkan kebakaran yang berpotensi terjadi.

《특수부대 출신의 첫 구조대원들》

부대 = 部隊 artinya pasukan, unit, korps

Awak penyelamat pertama berasal dari pasukan khusus

《88년 1월, <제1기 119 특별구조대> 모집공고가 동사무소마다 붙었다. 지원조건은 특수부대를 전역하고 하사 이상의 계급으로 3년 이상 근무한 사람이었고, 지원자들은 필기시험, 건강검진, 체력검정 및 면접을 거쳐 구조대원으로 최종 선발되었다. 위험한 곳에 투입되어야 하는 데다 첫 119 구조대였기 때문에 선발과정은 까다로울 수밖에 없었는데 특히 체력검정의 난이도가 높아 미달자가 속출하였다. 예를 들면, 40kg 모래주머니를 들고 50m 왕복달리기를 한다거나 40kg 역기 20개 이상 들기, 턱걸이, 평행봉 등을 우수한 성적으로 통과해야 했다.》

모집 = 募集 artinya rekrutmen

동사무소 = 洞事務所 artinya kantor lurah

시험 = 試驗 artinya ujian, tes

조건 = 條件 artinya persyaratan, kualifikasi

위험 = 危險 artinya bahaya

Pada bulan Januari 1988, pengumuman rekrutmen Tim Penyelamatan Khusus 119 pertama ditempel di masing-masing kantor kelurahan. Persyaratannya adalah mereka yang pernah di pasukan khusus, dan bekerja lebih dari tiga tahun dengan pangkat di atas sersan. Para pendaftar kemudian menjalani tes tulis, tes kesehatan, tes olahraga, dan wawancara. Karena tim penyelamat ini akan dikirim ke tempat-tempat berbahaya, tes yang mereka jalani meliputi, lari bulak-balik sejauh 50 meter dengan membawa karung beras seberat 40 kg, chin up, parallel bars, dan harus lulus dengan nilai sangat memuaskan.

《열악한 환경과 트라우마를 이겨내며》

《119 구조대는 서울, 부산, 대구, 광주, 대전, 수원, 인천 등 전국 7개 도시에서 총 9개대가 발족되었는데, 서울의 경우 중부소방서, 종로소방서와 올림픽 시설이 있는 강동소방서까지 3개대가 창설되었다. 발대식 이후 일선에 배치된 1기 구조대원들은 열악한 현실과 마주해야 했다. 구조 업무에 대한 기대감이 컸던 대원들과 달리 일선 소방서에는 장비는 물론 대기실과 사물함조차 구비되어 있지 않았던 것이다. 그나마 있는 구조장비는 변변치 않았고, 출동 차량도 없어서 대원들은 제대로 된 구조대를 만들기 위해 끊임없이 상부에 요청했고 그 과정에서 잦은 마찰도 발생했다.》

Total ada sembilan tim penyelamat 119 di tujuh kota di seluruh Korea Selatan. Kota-kota itu adalah Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Gwangju, Daejeon, Suwon, dan Incheon. Masing-masing memiliki satu, kecuali Seoul dengan tiga stasiun, yaitu Jungbu, Jongno, dan Gangdong yang mana memiliki fasilitas standar Olimpiade. Setelah upacara, angkatan pertama tersebut harus menghadapi realitas yang tidak mengenakkan. Mereka tidak memiliki peralatan, ruang tunggu, ataupun loker. Para anggota tim sering berdebat dengan atasan mereka untuk menyediakan peralatan.
 
《뿐만 아니라 현장에 출동한 대원들은 상상도 해본 적 없는 끔찍한 광경을 마주해야 했고, 이 때문에 정신적으로 고통을 겪기도 했다. 당시에는 트라우마에 대한 인식조차 없어서 많은 구조대원들이 홀로 악몽과 싸우고 극복해야 했으며 이를 극복하지 못하고 계속 힘들어하는 대원들도 있었다.》

Terlebih lagi, mereka melihat pemandangan yang buruk, mengerikan ketika mereka di TKP, beberapa dari mereka mengalami mimpi buruk dan trauma. Ada beberapa dari mereka yang tidak bisa menghilangkan bayangan buruk itu dari pikiran mereka.
 
《94년 10월부터 방영된 KBS <긴급구조 119>는 119 구조대의 활약상을 집중 조명하여 대중들에게 큰 인기를 얻었는데, 구조대에 대한 관심이 커지면서 온갖 사소한 신고전화가 쇄도하는 부작용도 생겼다. 이후 연이어 발생한 대형사고 현장에서 119 구조대의 활약이 두드러졌고, 사람들에게 생명을 구하는 ‘119 구조대’의 모습이 확실히 각인되었다. 구조대는 가장 먼저 사고현장에 도착해서 마지막 한 사람을 구할 때까지 현장을 지키는 고마운 존재였다. 그와 반대로 구조대원들의 작업 환경은 여전히 열악해서 대형 사고가 발생하면 구조대원들은 한 달간 집에도 들어가지 못한 채 제대로 된 휴식공간도 없이 길거리에서 쪽잠을 자며 임무를 수행하기도 했다.》

Program siaran TV KBS berjudul “Emergency Rescue 119” yang tayang pada bulan Oktober 1994 meraih popularitas yang tinggi dari masyarakat dengan memperlihatkan kegiatan-kegiatan para awak penyelamat 119. Imbasnya, orang-orang yang mempunyai masalah kecil pun menelpon tim 119. Sejak saat itu, tim 119 aktif di berbagai kejadian besar, dan dikenang masyarakat. Mereka yang pertama sampai di TKP dan tidak berhenti sampai semua orang diselamatkan. Sayangnya, kondisi pekerjaan mereka masih buruk, mereka kadang tidak pernah pulang ke rumah dalam sebulan dan beristirahat di pinggir jalan.
   
《90년대의 여러 대형사고 이후 재난관리법이 제정되어 모든 사고 현장을 총괄 지휘할 수 있는 체계가 마련되면서 구조대의 역할은 더욱 중요하고 다양해졌다. 각 소방서에 설치된 구조대 외에도 중앙구조대, 수난구조대, 산악구조대, 화생방구조대 및 국제구조대 등 다양한 목적의 특수구조대가 설치되어 각종 대형 특수재난사고에 대비하도록 제도가 정비되었고 구조 장비를 포함한 작업 환경도 많이 개선되었다. 구조대원들의 노력 없이는 불가능한 일이었다.》

Peran para tim penyelamat menjadi semakin penting dan beragam dengan disahkannya UU Penanggulangan Bencana akibat banyaknya kejadian besar pada tahun 90an. Selain, tim 119 yang disebut di atas, tim penyelamat khusus juga dibentuk seperti tim penyelamat air, gunung, biologis dan kimia dan skala internasional. Sejak saat itu, kondisi bekerja para tim penyelamat jauh membaik.

《생명을 구하는 일의 위대함》

Kemuliaan menyelamatkan nyawa

《편하거나 쉬운 일도 아니다. 돈을 많이 벌거나 엄청난 명예가 주어지는 것도 아니다. 생면부지의 타인을 구하기 위해 위험을 무릅써야 하고 때론 다치거나 목숨을 잃기도 한다. 투철한 사명감과 희생정신 없이는 결코 해낼 수 없는 일.》

명예 = 名譽 artinya kehormatan

타인 = 他人 artinya orang lain

Itu bukan pekerjaan yang nyaman atau mudah. Tidak juga mendatangkan banyak uang atau diberikan banyak penghormatan. Kamu harus mengambil risiko dalam menyelamatkan nyawa orang lain, kadang-kadang kamu bisa terluka bahkan meninggal. Itu adalah sesuatu yang tidak mungkin bisa dilakukan tanpa rasa pengorbanan dan tanggung jawab yang tinggi.

《”이제 연결된 것 같습니다”》

연결 = 連結 artinya koneksi, sambungan, hubungan

Rasanya kita sudah terhubung

《1982년 5월. 구미 전자기술연구소에서 연구원 한 명이 연구팀을 이끌던 전길남 박사를 불렀다. 컴퓨터 개발실에 놓인 단말기 앞에 박사가 자리를 잡자 그 주위로 연구원들이 모여들었다. 수십 개의 눈이 향한 곳은 오직 단말기 모니터. 구미에서 서울대학교에 있는 컴퓨터에 접속하기 위해 “UVTP snucom”을 입력했다. 잠시 후 모니터에 서울대학교의 컴퓨터 화면이 나타나자 숨소리조차 들리지 않던 개발실에서 환호성이 터졌다. 마침내 구미 전자기술연구소 컴퓨터와 서울대학교 컴퓨터간 인터넷 구축에 성공한 것이다.》

Pada bulan Mei 1982, seorang peneliti di Institut Penelitian Elektronik dan Teknologi Informasi Gumi, bernama Dr. Jeon Gil-nam, berkumpul dengan tim risetnya. Mereka sedang duduk di ruang pengembangan komputer, di depan mereka ada terminal komputer. Belasan mata terpusat pandangannya pada monitor terminal itu. UVTP snucom dimasukkan untuk mengakses sebuah komputer di Universitas Nasional Seoul (SNU). Beberapa saat kemudian, ketika layar komputer SNU muncul di layar Gumi, semuanya bersorak gembira. Akhirnya, mereka berhasil menghubungkan komputer Institut Teknologi Elektronik Gumi dengan komputer SNU dalam jaringan internet.

 
《전자기술연구소와 서울대학교 연구팀이 연구를 시작한 지 3년이 되어가던 봄이었다.
우리나라에 인터넷(IPv4네트워크)이 처음으로 구축된 순간이었고, 미국에 이은 세계에서 두 번째 성공이었다.

Sedang musim semi waktu itu, tiga tahun setelah Institut Penelitian Teknologi Elektronik dan tim riset di SNU memulai penelitian mereka. Itu pertama kalinya Internet (jaringan IPv4) terhubung di Korea dan keberhasilan yang kedua di dunia setelah Amerika Serikat.

UVTP : Unix Virtual Terminal Protocol

《일본에서 태어나 미국 유학을 거쳐 미 항공우주국(NASA)에서 연구하던 전길남 박사가 대한민국 전자기술연구소(KIET)의 초청을 받은 것은 1979년이었다. 당시 우리나라가 추진 중이던 프로젝트는 ‘반도체 및 컴퓨터 국산화’. 즉, 앞으로 컴퓨터를 국내의 기술력으로 생산하고 수출까지 하고 싶다는 것이 정부의 의지였다. 하지만 이제 겨우 컬러 텔레비전을 만들어내는 나라에서 이 프로젝트를 성공시키는 일은 굉장히 어려운 과제였다.》

유학 = 留學 artinya belajar di luar negeri

박사 = 博士 artinya doktor, PhD.

수출 = 輸出 artinya ekspor

Jeon Gil-nam, yang lahir di Jepang, belajar di Amerika Serikat dan NASA, diundang oleh Institut Teknologi Elektronik Korea (KIET) pada tahun 1979. Pada masa itu, keinginan pemerintah Korea adalah memproduksi dan mengekspor komputer dengan teknologi domestik. Namun, hal itu sangat sulit karena televisi berwarna saja baru mulai diproduksi.

《컴퓨터 개발 하나만으로도 막막한 상황에서 전길남 박사는 욕심을 더 냈다. 자신의 원래 전공인 컴퓨터 네트워크도 추가로 연구하기로 한 것. 컴퓨터 네트워크를 구축하여 미국이나 유럽과 정보를 주고 받아야 한국이 그들과 제대로 협력할 수 있는 수준에 이를 수 있다는 것이 그의 생각이었다. 당시의 인터넷은 미국이 1969년 개발한 아르파넷(ARPA NET)이 유일했다.》

협력 = 協力 artinya kooperasi, kerja sama, kolaborasi

Dr. Jeon Gil-nam memutuskan untuk kembali menekuni jurusan aslinya, Jaringan Komputer. Dia mempunyai ide untuk membangun sebuah jaringan komputer dan bertukar informasi dengan Amerika Serikat atau Eropa supaya Korea bisa bekerjasama dengan mereka lebih baik. ARPA NET, yang dibangun oleh AS pada tahun 1969, adalah satu-satunya internet kala itu.

“컴퓨터를 만들면 그게 세계에서 열다섯 번째도 넘는단 말이에요.
그런데 우리가 인터넷을 구축한다면 말 그대로 선도그룹에 들어가는 거에요.
욕심이 났죠.”

“Saya rakus, kalau kita membuat komputer saja, kita no 15 di dunia. Kalau kita buat internet, kita ada di barisan depan.”

《아무도 주목하지 않던 변방의 나라에서 》

Di dalam negara pinggiran yang tidak dikenal

《한국에서 인터넷을 구축할 수 있으리라고 믿는 이는 아무도 없었다. 유럽은 물론 일본, 호주 등에서도 인터넷을 구축하기 위한 연구가 진행되고 있었지만 그때까지는 어느 나라에서도 성공을 거두지 못했기 때문이었다. 인터넷은 물론 컴퓨터를 경험한 사람도 거의 없던 상황에서 연구팀은 소수의 연구원과 대학원생으로 꾸려졌다. 서울대 연구실의 시설이 열악한 것은 말할 것도 없고, 심지어 서울대 컴퓨터 공학과가 보유한 컴퓨터는 사양이 낮아서 다른 나라였다면 시도조차 하지 않았을 수준이었다. 그러나 절실함만은 강했기에 서울과 구미의 연구팀은 논문에서나 보던 인터넷을 구현하기 위해 밤낮으로 연구에 매진했다. 심지어 연구에 몰두하는 시간을 단 1분이라도 뺏기지 않기 위해 그 흔한 연구 일지나 사진 한 장도 남기지 않았다.》

Tidak ada yang percaya kalau Internet berhasil dibangun di Korea. Penelitian tidak hanya dilakukan di Eropa tetapi juga di Jepang dan Australia. Namun, di tempat-tempat itu mereka belum berhasil menghidupkan internet. Tim riset Korea terdiri dari beberapa peneliti dan mahasiswa pascasarjana. Belum lagi fasilitas lab SNU yang tidak memadai, bahkan komputer yang dimiliki oleh Fakultas Teknik Komputer di SNU, spesifikasinya sangat rendah, sampai-sampai negara-negara lain pasti tidak mau memakainya. Namun, karena keinginan yang sangat kuat, para peneliti di Seoul dan Gumi fokus pada riset siang dan malam untuk membangun jaringan internet yang selama ini hanya mereka liaht di atas kertas. Bahkan mereka tidak sempat menulis di jurnal penelitian atau foto, karena sepenuhnya mereka mau riset.
 
결국 3년간의 고생은 세계에서 두 번째 인터넷 구축이라는 쾌거로 이어졌다. 1982년 서울과 구미의 컴퓨터가 낙후된 전화선을 통해 연결되었을 때, 인터넷 속도는 고작 1,200bps였다. 최근의 속도가 수Gbps에 이르는 것을 생각해 보면 100만 배의 차이다.》

결국 = 結局 artinya pada akhirnya

고생 = 苦生 artinya halangan, rintangan, masa sulit

구축 = 構築 artinya membangun, mendirikan

속도 = 速度 artinya kecepatan, kelajuan

Pada akhirnya, tiga tahun masa sulit berakhir dengan prestasi hebat membangun Internet kedua di dunia. Pada tahun 1982, ketika komputer di Seoul dan di Gumi terhubung via jaringan telepon yang sudah ketinggalan jaman, kecepatan internet waktu itu hanya 1200 bps. Bandingan dengan sekarang yang mencapi beberapa Gbps, bedanya 1 juta kali lebih cepat.

《한국에는 팔지 않겠다!》

Aku tidak akan menjualnya ke Korea!

《인터넷을 개발하려면 ‘라우터(Router)’라는 장비가 필요했는데 미국에서는 이를 첨단 기술로 취급했기 때문에 영국과 노르웨이에 각 1대씩 설치 해줬을 뿐 다른 국가에는 판매조차 하지 않았다. 상황이 이러하니 라우터를 자체 개발하자는 쪽으로 연구팀의 의견이 모아졌다. 하지만 이는 많은 기술과 시간을 요하는 어려운 작업이었고 심지어 서울대학교에 있던 컴퓨터는 사양이 매우 낮아서 자체 개발하더라도 프로그램이 정상적으로 작동할지 장담할 수도 없는 상황이었다. 하지만 집념이 담긴 노력 끝에 연구팀은 결국 라우터를 개발하는데 성공했고 다시 한 번 세계를 놀라게 했다.》

Membangun Internet memerlukan sebuah alat bernama “Router”, alat berteknologi tinggi bagi Amerika Serikat. Alat ini baru dipasang masing-masing satu di Inggris dan Norwegia, tetapi tidak dijual ke negara-negara lain. Dengan situasi seperti itu, tim riset setuju untuk membuat router sendiri. Namun, pekerjaan sulit itu membutuhkan banyak waktu dan teknologi yang mumpuni. Bahkan komputer-komputer di SNU spesifikasinya sangat rendah, komputer buatan sendiri bahkan tidak bisa sepertinya menjalankan program yang baru dengan baik. Namun, dengan usaha yang ulet, tim riset akhirnya sukses membuat router dan sekali lagi mengejutkan dunia.

《연구실의 네트워크에서 모두의 인터넷으로》

Dari jaringan laboratorium menjadi internet semua orang

《애초에 인터넷(IPv4네트워크)은 연구 수준의 증진이라는 학술적 용도를 위해 개발되었다. 그러나 생각보다 국내에서의 네트워크, 즉 인터넷에 대한 수요는 강력했다. 일례로 전길남 박사는 1980년대 후반경에 갑자기 늘어난 트래픽을 추적하다가 카이스트에서 학부생들이 인터넷으로 게임을 하는 것을 목격했다. 학생들은 미국, 영국 등지에서 새로 나온 게임을 받아보거나 동시에 그쪽과 게임을 하는 용도로 인터넷을 사용하고 있었던 것이다.》

수요 = 需要 artinya permintaan

Awalnya, Internet (jaringan IPv4) dibangun untuk tujuan akademis untuk mempromosikan penelitian. Akan tetapi permintaan akan jaringan atau internet di rumah lebih kuat dari yang diprediksi. Contohnya, Dr. Jeon Gil-nam melihat mahasiswa bermain game dengan Internet di KAIST dan melihat trafik internet tiba-tiba melonjak sekitar akhir tahun 80an. Para mahasiswa menggunakn internet untuk mencari game di Amerika Serikat, Inggris, dan negara-negara lain dan bermain dengan orang-orang di luar negeri.

《인터넷이 없는 하루를 상상할 수 있는가》

Dapatkah Anda membayangkan sehari tanpa Internet

《세계 최고 수준의 인터넷 환경이 구축된 우리나라에서 인터넷이 없는 하루는 상상조차 할 수 없다. 지하철에서 오늘의 뉴스를 확인하고, 버스를 기다리며 웹툰을 보거나 전날 놓친 방송영상을 찾아본다. 점심을 먹다가 SNS에 사진과 글을 올리고, 카페에 가서는 노트북으로 동영상 강의를 보거나 온갖 자료를 검색한다. 어딜 가든 가장 먼저 확인하게 되는 것이 인터넷 연결 상태일 정도로 우리에게 없어서는 안 될 기술이 바로 인터넷이다.》

지하철 = 地下鐵 artinya kereta bawah tanah

Di Korea, di mana lingkungan internet terbaik bisa ditemui, susah sekali rasanya membayangkan sehari tanpa internet. Saya mengecek berita hari ini di kereta bawah tanah, membaca webtoon sambil menunggu bus, atau menonton video siaran yang saya tidak sempat tonton pada hari sebelumnya. Sambil makan siang, dia mengirim foto dan tulisan di media sosial, ketika dia pergi ke kafe, dia menonton video kuliah di laptop dan mencari bahan-bahan lain di internet. Kemanapun kita pergi, hal pertama yang kita temui adalah Internet, yang merupakan teknologi yang tidak tergantikan bagi kita.
