Friday Funnies: Korean Students Have the Best Yearbook Photos Ever

By Hanssie on February 21st 2014

When I was a senior in high school, my best friend and I made it a goal join as many clubs as possible so we could be in as many yearbook photos as possible. Call us narcissistic, but what else does a non popular student do? Our senior photos in the yearbook were not going to standout from the hundreds of other kids. At the end of the year, we ended up in over 15 pages of our yearbook, not counting our official senior photos.

At some Korean schools, standing out in the high school yearbook isn’t too much of an issue. The administration seems to  understand the need that high school students feel when they are standing on that finite line between being a child and becoming an adult and have allowed their students a nearly “anything goes” policy for their yearbook photos. Hilarity ensues.

Some kids did what was expected…


And then there were the others…

What would you have done given the opportunity? All I can say is that it’s a good thing my high school only allowed the ‘standard’ senior portrait or else I’d be paying out plenty of blackmail requests.
