It is no doubt that technology has help humankind in a lot of ways, from entertainment to comfort it is really one of man’s greatest inventions.
Netizens from around the world witnessed an emotional moment from a mother who was able to have a glimpse of her dead daughter through virtual reality.
Jang Ji-Sung is from South Korea whose daughter passed away last 2016 due to a severe illness that cannot be treated. Her deceased daughter, Nayeon, was only seven years old when she ceased living in this world. After three years Jang Ji-Sung was able to see her daughter through virtual reality, a mainstream technology that we have today. The staffs who have witnessed the memorable meeting were not able to hold back their tears
In the video it can be seen that Jang Ji-Sung is wearing a VR camera with greenscreen to see his daughter’s image and surroundings as if it were true and that they were together.
With every “I miss you and How are you” of Jang Ji-Sung to Nayeon, you can really feel how much longing she has for her daughter. Jang Ji-Sung was able to talk to Nayeon through the virtual reality. She also noticed that her daughter is wearing her favorite slippers.
In their conversation, Nayeon said to her mom to hold her hand and that they can go to the sky and visit her house. They also sang “Happy Birthday” like it was Nayeon’s birthday. There was rice cake prepared as it is one of Nayeon’s favorite food when she was still living.
Nayeon’s birthday wishes were the following, her mother should not cry anymore, her father should stop smoking cigarettes and may her siblings don’t fight with each other anymore.
This scene was made into a Korean documentary titled “I Met You” which is published by Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation and can be viewed on Youtube.
