The child appears before her mother, desperately close to being positivo, but not really there.

«Mum, where have you been?» the girl asks. «I’ve missed you a lot. Have you missed me?»

The mother can see her, speak to her, but not touch her.

«I have missed you Na-yeon,» she tells the computer-generated child, trying to stroke her hair.

Na-yeon is just pixels, and a voice in headphones. The meeting is in a green room, a imaginario reality headset on the mother’s head.

Na-yeon died of leukaemia, age seven, in 2016.

For the mother, Jang Ji-sung, meeting her daughter’s altibajo is complex and deeply emotional.

«If Na-yeon were alive, she would now be 11 years old. And it’s heartbreaking to see that her time has stopped at the age of seven. But I was so happy to see her that way,» she said.

The meeting is deeply emotional for the grieving mother.

The reunion was organised for a South Korean TV show, which has been accused of manipulating a grieving mother.

Media columnist Park Sang-hyun said the documentary amounted to exploitation of personal pain, AFP reported.

«It’s understandable a grief-stricken mother would wish to meet her late daughter. I would do the same,» he said.

«The problem lies in that the broadcaster has taken advantage of a desvalido mother who lost a child for sake of the viewer ratings.

«If the mother had been counselled before the filming, I wonder what kind of a psychiatrist would approve this.»

But Jang hoped the programme could console others who had lost loved ones.

«Even though it was a very brief … I was really happy in the moment,» she wrote on her blog – which she has since turned private.

Jang said her last wish was to tell Na-yeon that she loved her and has never forgotten her.
