(KFDX/KJTL) — Fake funerals are a growing trend people are dying to try. More than 25,000 people and counting are signing up for the living funeral group exercises a South Korean healing center is offering.
Participants begin by writing their wills and having their picture taken, all before donning traditional burial garments and lying in a coffin.
