April 16th marks one year since the Sewol ferry sank. On this morning of the 16th, first year students at Seong-An High School (Ansan Sangrook-gu) have a moment of silence in memory of the Sewol victims. Gyeonggi-do sounded the emergency sirens at 10 a.m. for one minute to commemorate the 1-year anniversary of the Sewol tragedy.

Comments from Naver:


The family of the victims lost a member of their family, and it must be so hard on them hearing people criticize them…


Please, stop writing negative comments ;;


You didn’t deserve what happened to you. Those adults who don’t think about anything but money were the bad ones. Korea must protect you, and your precious futures. We are truly sorry.


I want to cry just looking at the news. It seems like it happened just yesterday… but it’s already been a year.. I will never forget ..


Oh this is so sad. 304 people that day who stayed put, and who through no fault of their own perished. And on that day the president went on a trip abroad. Does that make any sense? What were you afraid of? What were you hiding? You also left on March 1st Day. tsk You throw away our tax money on useless things and keep talking about the same things psh What scandal or accident will happen the next time the president leaves? And again that we can decrease instances of political corruption through debates? Chicken Geun-hye, you seem to be mocking the victims’ families and all Korean people. Madame Park, you disgust me. How dare you call yourself President when you are like that? How pathetic are the people of Korea? We must remember the tears of the children of the Sewol.


Let us also remember the rescue workers.


Why did you take away those promising children? … Does anyone even care?


They say the ground is stronger after it rains.. Students, after you overcome your sadness, please make a better Korea than the one we have now… We are all rooting for you.


You are all so kind and look so nice. Even though your math trips were canceled because of the accident, and now you have to do volunteer service instead, you all have such beautiful hearts and are so sad for your friends. Adults should be more like you.
