New Korean Fad: Umbilical Cord Plated In Gold


In Seoul, South Korea, many parents have been preserving their children's umbilical cord in acrylic resin to a make personal seal and/or have it gold plated.

U&I Impressions reported that 80 to 100 umbilicals a monthhave been treated this way since they started their buisness in August. The prices of this service range from 80,000 won to 100,000 won ($76 to $96).

"The company got the idea from mothers just storing umbilical cords and navels in an album or what-not," stated Suk Tae-jin of Agamo. Keeping children's umbilical cords and creating calligraphy brushes out of their hair has long been a tradition.

.....uhhhh....wouldn't they start to decay, and stink? Sounds disgusting, but then again, in some traditions, its not uncommon to make placenta tea....yuck

No, they just dry up. My grandmother has my pop's cord in an album. It grossed the hell outta me when I was a kid.

Glad my mom doesn't do that.
