Korean woman mummified husband who died 7 years ago

A 47-year-old woman was caught by police for keeping her husband’s corpse at home, YTN reported Wednesday.

Police booked her without detention for abandoning a dead body of her husband who died of liver cancer in 2006.

The woman who works as a pharmacist embalmed the body and kept the mummy in her living room for seven years.

The woman’s children even said bye to the dead body before going to school as usual.

Although she continued running a pharmacy after her husband’s death, she shut herself and her family from all outside contact in order to hide the dead body.

The woman believed that her husband can be raised from the dead by her prayer.

ETA: For those of you with faint of heart, the mummy pictured isn't that husband, but a mummy from a b-movie in the 40s. However, if you say mummy five times in front of a mirror he will pay a visit to you during the following night... LOL Who knew that old movie monster would be this scary for some of you.

Boyfriend will release their 4th Japanese single "My Avatar" on March 26th

Boyfriend will release their 4th Japanese single "My Avatar" on March 26th. The theme is "the near future".

bf1

Boyfriend's 4th single "My Avatar" will go on sale March 26th.

The word in the title "Avatar" has the meaning of "alter ego". To the people listening it could mean the part of you that is a lover, a sibling, a rival or your own self, and it's a song that depicts the love and discord of those different parts.

Until now, they showed a sweet image both in their music and visuals. For their 4th single, they will undergo a change of image with a cool, stylish dance number that has an air of the near future drifting about it.

They will challenge an acrobatic dance in their music video. Besides the normal music video, included in the first press limited edition A version will be a full dance focused recording of the high level dance.

Also contained in this single and going along with the "near future" theme are two contrasting visual images. In both outfits, the B logo on their chest represents cipher text from the future, and show that the 6 guys are people from the future. There is the wild and cool, black styled Boyfriend, and the white styled Boyfriend that has white hair extensions, colour contacts, face decals, and are slowly being invaded by iron. Boyfriend dressed stylishly as "future people" showing these varying expressions is a must see.

Gay Rights Activists in Korea Step Up to Support LGBTQ Youth

Somewhere Under the Rainbow

Queer rights activists in South Korea step up efforts to support and protect LGBTQ youth, with plans to build a long-term shelter and resource center in Seoul.

by HANSOOK OH

IN APRIL OF 2003, a gay South Korean high school student who went by the name Yook Woo-dang committed suicide in the Seoul office of a queer rights organization, Dong In Ryeon (also known by the English name Solidarity for LGBT Human Rights of Korea). Though just 18, Yook had already been active in the fight for LGBT equality, often writing opinion articles and even participating in demonstrations against the war in Iraq “under the rainbow flag.” Along with his last $30, the young, devout Catholic teen left a suicide note, which expressed both encouragement to his fellow queer rights activists, as well as his indignation with discrimination against sexual minorities, especially by the Christian right.

“How cruel and anti-biblical it is to discriminate against sexual minorities,” Yook wrote. “After death, I can proudly say that I am gay, with no need to suffer, no need to hide myself anymore.”
