Creative photos featured in Korean high school yearbooks have caught the eyes of foreign Internet users.
Unlike usual “sit straight, chin down, with an awkward smile” poses, Korean high schools are allowing “anything goes” yearbook photos to capture students’ last moments as seniors.
RocketNews24, an online community which reports interesting news from Asia, posted some bizarre yearbook photos on Feb. 17. The post currently has 75,000 likes on Facebook.
The accompanying explanation starts with “If only we’d been in Korea …” and concludes with “We commend these Korean students’ creativity and boldness, and thank them for this hilarious collection of photos”.
Some of the reactions to the photos included, “Please let this be a thing for all high schools!,” “This is gold!” and “Not that outrageous.”
