Al Jazeera has the report:
In an attempt to improve and find a meaning to their lives some South Koreans have taken the unusual step of going to the grave.
At South Korea's coffin-academy people come to die, in order to learn how to live.
The people remain inside coffins for a total of ten minutes. And the funeral director says, it is in these quiet moments, that he has seen lives transformed.
Many say the near-death experiences which they term 'well-dying' are the best way to achieve long lasting inner peace.
Al Jazeera's Steve Chao reports from Daejeon in South Korea.
What the heck is a thirteen year old girl doing there participating in a living funeral? Cultural differences be damned, this is NOT healthy.
