Some female students in Korea are resorting to "desk curtains" in a bid to hide their legs during classes.

Photos of female students at a high school were updated on a website Sunday. In the photos, the lower part of the students' desks were covered with curtains.

Most female middle and high school students in Korea wear skirts for school uniforms. Many have been complaining that it's uncomfortable to sit on chairs for long time, while wearing skirts.

The "desk curtains" were made to let the students sit comfortably in classrooms.
