This week, students across South Korea celebrate their graduation as many schools reach the end of their school year. During this season, streets in and around school campuses turn festive with numerous pop-up shops lining sidewalks with flower bouquets, food and party favors to add to the excitement of the joyous day. The extremely competitive schooling environment in South Korea makes graduation an especially important milestone in South Korean life. Classmates, family members and extended relatives gather for the celebration, and Instagrammers attending graduation ceremonies are sharing their special moments with the world.
