Approximately 70 people pledged to "Changing the meaning of life and provide an opportunity to live for others" when they are in a coffin.

Lee Myung-hee (42), a mother of two children, said his experience in a coffin made ​​him realize how much he loved his family and is still too early for him to imagine death.

"It (death) can come to me, because of the age factor. I think it could happen anytime, so I think death is not my business. I think it is better to prepare for my final day in a reasonable manner," he said as quoted by the Telegraph, Friday (07/08/2011).
