Although the South Korean Institute for the Art of Spellcraft hosts its pupils in a rather traditional environment of palaces and pavilions on a secluded island in the Korea Strait, the student population has integrated technology so impressively into their learnings that the school is one of the most technologically advanced of this generation. The campus boasts many gardens and lotus ponds; occasionally, if you look close enough, you will see eyes staring back at you. The students are impeccably polite and respectful in the public eye, but as soon as they escape professor supervision, they take to hosting late night parties and executing extravagantly planned (but subtle) pranks. During the Lotus Lantern Festival, an abundance of lanterns are released into the sky with a glow so bright that muggles often pause in confusion to observe the curious glimmer of light reflected on the water despite utter darkness blanketing the strait.
