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.

Al Jazeera's Steve Chao reports from Daejeon in South Korea.
