Burial was a dominant funerary practice during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), but that is rapidly changing. JoongAng Ilbo
In a nation where taking care of your ancestors after they pass away has long been nearly as important as how you treat them in life, funeral customs are among Korea's most important traditions. But after hundreds of years of burying the departed and tending their graves, Koreans have switched their preference to cremations in barely a generation.
"Cremation was considered unfilial in the past, so people didn't opt for it that much", said Sunwoo Seung-tae, the head of operations for Seoul Seunghwawon, a city-run crematory located on the outskirts of Goyang City, Gyeonggi.

According to a representative, Yoo Hae Jin, Uhm Tae Woong, Cha Tae Hyun, Lee Su Geun, Sung Shi Kyung and Kim Jong Min all gave it their best filming this episode to try to fill the void left by Joo Won. Beginning with “Genius gugak player” Song So Hee’s folk song performance, the members unified and undertook the “bokbulbok” (chance) game

Name: Suljeongni Three-story Stone Pagoda of, Changnyeong, Period: Unified Silla Period, Location: Changnyeong County, South Gyeongsang ,Status: National Treasure No. 34

This pagoda is graceful enough to be compared with the Three-story Stone Pagoda in Bulguksa Temple (National Treasure No. 33). It is presumed that such Buddhist relics exist because of the influence of Changnyeong in the Silla Dynasty.
The three-story pagoda body stands on a two-story platform, which was common in stone pagodas in the Unified Silla Dynasty. The roof stone is horizontal but the four corners are a little raised, making a simple figure
Name: Commemorative Stele of Silla King Jinheung, Period: Silla Period,Location: Changnyeong County, South Gyeongsang, Status: National Treasure No. 33
King Jinheung of the Silla Dynasty built the monument after he made a royal tour of Bitbeolgaya (now Changnyeong) that he had incorporated into the Silla territory.
At that time, Bitbeolgaya was an important territory for Silla to progress toward the West, with historians describing it as "the pivot of a fan". Accordingly, it was incorporated into Silla territory in the 16th year (555) of King Jinheung.
In 561, King Jinheung made a royal tour of the area. Four years later, it was incorporated with Daeyaju (today's Hapcheon) and called either Bisabeol-gun or Bijahwa-gun.
The monument was at the foot of the hill of Mokmasanseong Fortress at first, but in 1924 it was moved to the present site and placed inside a pavilion
