A Korean schoolboy gets whacked in fun with a stick (no sound)
This silent film (2 minutes 3 seconds) shows a South Korean youngster in his British-style school uniform (blazer, tie, grey trousers) getting very gently whacked across the seat of his pants by somebody who may or may not be a teacher, while surrounded by other students.
The implement being used is a rough stick, too thick and rigid to be described as a cane.
Clearly, this isn't a real punishment. The kid is laughing, the general atmosphere is jocular, and it seems to be something that is happening in fun, possibly a rehearsal for a dramatic presentation of some kind.
For the serious student of CP, the clip is interesting in that it shows what is possibly the modus operandi for real whoppings at some Korean schools, with the recipient face down on the floor, as distinct from the "all fours" posture we have seen in other pictures and video clips; and perhaps because of what it might tell us about attitudes towards, or awareness of, corporal punishment among teachers and students.
