    You can root the phone and delete the various camera_whatever.ogg files in /system/media/audio/ui, or use a camera app that allows silent shutter (Snap Camera HDR is one).

    Does the Stylo not have the option to silence the shutter sound? I know most phones have that option and i just got the Stylo but can't find it on there.. I know various phones have them under different settings.

    It does depend on the device, what the manufacturer has decided. Some you can silence the stock camera shutter sound, some you can't, like the LG Stylo. On Oppo phones, selecting mute silences everything, including the camera sounds.

    Believe it or not some countries and jurisdictions have laws about this, like a digital camera must make an audible sound when taking a photo. Perhaps Korea is one of them.

    There are third-party camera apps you can install that have silent shutter though.

    Hold down the volume down button until the ringer is silent and take pictures takes less than 2 secs

    I couldn't do that on my stylo,which one did this work on because mine was boost mobile variant,that I might add always seemed like it always lacked certain features other variants of stylo had.

    You can put the phone on silent or just download another camera app that has that option.
