Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget


For those of you who may not want to see the actual picture, it's essentially an image from a Korean ghost story called Bongcheon-dong Ghost.  It's considered by many to be one of the most horrifying online comics of all time.

The story follows a Korean schoolgirl coming home from school at 11:20 p.m. As she walks near her apartment complex, she meets a ghost asking for her baby. She tries to trick the ghost and run away, but it only enrages the ghost, causing it to fly towards her. The girl passes out and is later retrieved by some neighbours. We later learn that it was the ghost of Mrs. Cho, who lost had custody of her two-year-old daughter and committed suicide.

The story references the real-life 2002 suicide of “Mrs. Cho”, a woman who lived in the area. The reason behind her suicide was the loss of her child due to a divorce settlement. It is well known for its two jump scare animations and sounds of grinding bone.

Believe me, if I could turn back time... I would never have gone on http://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep while bored.  (It was daytime, but still.)
