Under this years theme, legend has it that in the 1960′s there was a program to house and teach a group of students from around the world. They came to Busan to learn Korean, Taekwondo, kimchi and making rice cakes. During their stay at the school the principal got angry. No one could figure out why. Then out of the blue the principal locked all of the doors and began to dismember and torture the students. No one survived and the school was left abandoned for decades because according to Korean legend if you occupy a building that a murder has happened, you too will get murdered by the ghosts that inhabit it. These ghosts have been stuck in this limbo for 50 plus years! We don’t know what’s going on inside there! Rats, cockroaches, stink and filth from 50 years of abandon. Some have tried to enter on a dare and the ones that did… you’ll just have to try at your own risk. This is one of the scariest abandoned buildings you’ll ever see and hopefully, enter.
