For the first time ever, man falls in love with a pillow, gets married to it

Will you marry a pillow? Take some time to imagine if you could ever take this decision? We’ll leave it to your imagination. However, probably for the first time ever, a South Korean fell in love with a pillow and got married to it. It indeed sounds unbelievable and crazy at the same.

Well, he won’t have to spend too much money on the pillow. He is now living a happy life. It is a strange story about a man identified as Lee Jin Gyu who seriously married a pillow which he named as Fate Testarossa. Even the Korean media made a full coverage of his wedding with an anime character on a pillow.


Many people found this love story strange like how can a man love an object and live with it for the rest of the life? While others even doubted that it might just be a publicity stunt. Lee Jin Gyu since then backed himself over the subject of these criticisms.

He added several times that he is really madly in love with the pillow Fate Testarossa. Lee named his ‘dakimura’ (kind of large, huggable pillow from Japan) after the character on it. It has been said that Fate is a character from an anime series named Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.

Ever since he bought the pillow, he started loving it to the core. In fact, he is even having a date with ‘Fate’ in malls, amusement, public parks and wherever places he goes, he takes Fate with him. Isn’t it really amusing? “My love for Fate is unchangeable, but I will take more time to think about our marriage”, said Lee before marrying Fate.

The wedding ceremony happened in a church, and their marriage garnered a lot of mixed reaction from the public.
