Lee Jin-Gyu dressed the pillow in a wedding dress and married his love in a special ceremony with a local priest. A friend of Lee has explained, that Lee is completely obsessed with the pillow, taking it everywhere. Lee has brought the pillow out to restaurants, where the pillow gets its own seat and meal. Since the wedding, Lee has been given the nickname of otaku. It’s a Japanese term that translates into something between obsessive and nerd. No matter the odd and controversial relationship, what matters is whether Lee is happy or not. (Via: metro.co.uk)
