For doting parents, gold-plated umbilical cords: "Forget desktop photographs of your children. Doting South Korean parents can preserve their child’s umbilical cord in acrylic resin to make a personal seal or even have it gold plated.

"In this Confucian society where family values are highly prized, suppliers also offer services for parents to have traditional Korean calligraphy brushes made from their child’s hair."

They do a reasonable job at explaining what, but hardly even attempt why.
