Way back in my college days we had something called Spring Fling where bands of varying levels of notoriety would come and play for us as we danced around outside, sneaking sips of beer, vodka, or mixed drinks from “ice tea” or “water” or “soda” bottles.
Sogang’s “spring fling” or spring festival started yesterday, and no amount of gloomy weather or drizzling rain has stopped these kids from being festive.
