A South Korean man burst into tears when he was reunited with his deceased wife through his virtual reality.
The virtual reunion was part of a TV documentary that creates VR experiences to see grieving family members and their loved ones who have passed away.
South Korean man Kim Jung-soo went to the MBC documentary titled [Translated from Korean] I Met You to see his deceased wife again.
It apparently took six months to prepare for the couple’s reunion.

Kim said his only wish in life was to “see only [his] wife’s shadow one more time”.
In the documentary, Kim’s children express their different views on their father’s wish.
Kim’s second daughter, Jong-yun, supported Kim after hearing of his wish. In one play of the documentary, she recalls tender moments between her parents.

On the other hand, Kim’s eldest daughter, Jong-bin, did not support her father at first. She believed he would struggle to move on from the past if he ‘met’ his wife one last time.
