A Korean Staple – Pencil Cases

Any teacher here in Korea will tell you about the kids and their pencil boxes. At the beginning of class each student takes out their books and places their pencil box on their desk.

Some pencil boxes are soft, others hard, others are password protected and some are stuffed animals. Some have interesting messages and others have profanity (yes this says “Good Fuck” and yes Paul said he knew what it meant.
Inside you can find many things ranging from non ink highlighters to stickers and of course every eight year old carries with them a box cutter knife.
Just another day in the life of a Korean student. Richie was nice enough to share his smile with you 🙂
