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.
