South Korea has one of the highest suicide rates in the world and in a strange response to its growing suicide epidemic, bizarre ‘death experience’ schools are being set up to teach depressed pupils to appreciate life again by showing them what it is like to be dead. 

They are made to sign fake wills, hold up their fake obituaries, locked inside coffins and are given mock funeral services.
Sitting between rows of coffins, with pens and papers littering small desks, the students listen as the head of the center, former funeral company employee Jeong Yong-mun, explains that the problems we face in life are a part of life.
They are told they must accept them and try to find joy in their sufferings or whatever they are going through.

Among the students are teenagers who cannot cope with exam pressure in school, parents who find themselves bored or useless after their children have left home, and the elderly terrified of being a financially burden on their young families.
