People who follow the course ‘death’ will use the traditional flax yellow, lying in a coffin in peace. Then the coffin was closed until the people who get into the coffin really feel the darkness and death experiences.
This will make them realize that the worst fears like eternal darkness will come. Inside the coffin they also will promise to change the meaning of life and provide an opportunity to know yourself.
“How grateful I am that this is a fake funeral, not real. There is (the same) but the process of life to death to have a very big difference,” said Ha Yu-soo (62 years), one of the course participants of death, as reported by Reuters.

“I’ll leave the nature of greed in a relationship with her husband and love my children again,” she said as she rose from the coffin.
The same experience was also felt Lee Myung-hee (42 years) a mother of 2 children.He said the experience of being in a coffin made him realize how much he loved his family and did not want to be too early to think about death, especially suicide.
“Death can come regardless of age. I think it can come to anyone around me, so I do not have to think death is my business (suicide). I think this is a good opportunity to prepare for end of life in a calm,” said Lee Myung-hee, as reported by the Telegraph.
Kang Kyung-ah, seminar instructor and professor of nursing at Sahmyook University said that the seminars and courses ‘death’ will be beneficial for South Korea, especially for people in their 20s, 30s and 40s, where suicide rates tend to highest among the age group.
Suicide is a major problem in South Korea. Among member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), South Korea is ranked highest for suicide, with an increased sharply after the Asian financial crisis struck in 1997 and is still growing.
Suicide data online that shows the number of suicides among K-pop celebrities and even former president showed the negative side of rapid economic development and a highly competitive atmosphere.
“The main cause of death in their 20s, 30s and 40s was suicide. These people are the working age group. This course can change the meaning of life and provide an opportunity to know yourself,” Kang said.
According to Kang, this program will make people think about life. When the exercise ended death, gloom will end anyway. Participants will be glad to be back from the dead and began to clap and sing a song called ‘Happy’.
