Gangnam Stress

South Korea’s extreme measures against extreme pressure

Get short URL

South Koreans are known as some of the hardest-working and thus stressed-out citizens in the world. A fiercely-competitive society and long work hours inevitably result in high incidences of stress and suicide, as well as cases of death by overwork.

Mock funerals in South Korea
In South Korea, mock funerals is a thing nowadays. Hyowon Healing Center allows clients to experience their own death and learn to appreciate life again.

Stressed locals find relief in some peculiar ways. Some take part in their own funerals to appreciate life; others spend a few days meditating in a temple or take a break in solitary confinement in mock gaols.

What do you think?
