A high school in South Korea has allowed their students to dress up in whatever they want for their graduation photo-taking day — and these kids did not hold back

Uijeongbu High School in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, is an all-boys school that holds its graduation picture day a couple months before the actual ceremony. 

According to Vice Asia, the high school's tradition of allowing their students to dress in fun costumes has caught nationwide attention since 2009.

Instead of the typical 'neat, look-at-camera-and-smile' type of graduation photos, these students get to unleash their fun side, making it a memorable day

From Mario to Avatar characters, students this year came dressed in all kinds of costumes. 

Here are some of our favourites:

What a fun way to end school!
