Vietnamese High School Wows Netizens With Its Luxurious Vibe That Looks Straight Out Of A Korean Drama

Luxurious high school campus in Vietnam

Our high school with all the memories of friends and first loves will always hold a special place in our hearts. Be it the most renowned school in town, or the humble one just up the street from our childhood home, we would never trade it for anything else.

But that doesn’t mean we won’t feel a touch of jealousy when we see others share how modern and beautiful their schools are. Case in point: pictures of a high school in Vĩnh Phúc Province have recently left Vietnamese netizens drooling for one simple reason – it looks like the set of a Korean drama series.

The school has just undergone renovation

The school in question is the Vĩnh Phúc Specialist High School, located 70KM from Hanoi in the province of Vĩnh Phúc. It has recently gone through a renovation and is ready to open its doors to students later this month, just in time for the new school year.

Now boasting a spacious campus, it comes equipped with cutting-edge amenities, promising students a beautiful studying environment. The schoolyard, for instance, looks like a public park with its multi-layered design adorned by plenty of trees and a pond in the middle.

At one side of the yard are a football pitch and a running track reserved for sporting activities.

Speaking of sports, there is also a gym featuring an indoor swimming pool and a basketball field. Rain isn’t going to stop these students from busting out their best slam dunk moves during P.E. class.

Classrooms can accommodate 35-40 students and have 2 air conditioners each for hot summer days, as well as a computer for the teacher to use during class.

Many others, such as Facebook user Thương Phạm, are also saying that the school looks straight out of the Korean drama series “The Heirs”, which was a phenomenon in Vietnam back in 2014.

“Anyone else thinks this looks like the Shinhwa School from The Heirs?”
