Then when he goes out to eat he takes it with him and it gets its own seat and its own meal

Lee Jin-gyu - who fell for his 'dakimakura', a kind of large pillow popular in the country - wed the much-loved bedroom item during a special ceremony.

Lee, 28, dressed his pillow in a lavish wedding frock for the service, which was held in front of a local priest.

A friend said: "He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it everywhere. They go out to the park or the funfair where it will go on all the rides with him. Then when he goes out to eat he takes it with him and it gets its own seat and its own meal."
