Gloria, my father only made it one more day than yours did. My mother lived 55 more years, never remarried. I don't know how she did it.

An fascinating article there is a more in depth one on http://explorermf.wordpress.com/2010/02/21/16th-century-mummy-captivates-a-nation/
It is a pity that there is no mention of Yi Eung Tae's wife's name.

Intriguing and fascinating. His love is certainly eternal, even now we are reading about his love.
