Overview

WhiteDay: A Labyrinth Named School (Korean: 화이트 데이: 학교라는 이름의 미궁) is a Korean survival horror game for the PC.

In South Korea and Japan, Valentine's Day is viewed as a day when girls give chocolates to boys whom they like or have affections for. The following month, March 14th is celebrated as White Day, on which boys reciprocate and present candy or chocolate to girls they have feelings for. The game's premise is about a high school kid who tries to surprise his crush by leaving such a gift on her desk the night before.

Soundtrack Controversy

The game was infamous for having an incredibly atmospheric soundtrack. One particular soundtrack is called "Labyrinth"(미궁) and it was played by a traditional instrument called ga-ya-gum(가야금). The artist's name is Hwang Byung Gi(황병기) and he did come out and say that while he was performing the song live, a woman screamed and left the building in fear. The rumor spread over the internet and people started saying that a woman committed a suicide after listening to the song, though there is no proof that such thing actually happened.
