Yesterday was the day of the all-important national university entrance examination (대학수학능력시험, or 수능 for short), and the underclassmen found some creative ways to cheer on their older classmates. Click on the photos for the original galleries at the Chosun Ilbo.

These students camped out all night at Ehwa Women's University.

More campers. Looks like fun.

  • I’ve noticed the importance of the suneung really decrease in the four years I’ve been here, actually. This year our school didn’t even sent along a cheering contingent to the school where our third-years were sitting the exam.

  • The first time I looked at these pics I didn’t notice that you can see the pink underwear of one of the boys in the front row of the second photo.
