High school South Korean kids in their school uniforms smoking cigarettes and rebelling against a conservative system. Public school in South Korea is comparable to military school in America, except they go six days a week. It’s not a game. For these kids, directly staring into that camera is their way of saying, “Fuck you.” Subtlety goes a long.

South Korean photographer Park Sung Jin has been clicking for a minute. These photos (taken 2006-2009) are from his series Kid Nostalgia.
