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.

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.
