Remembering Sewol Ferry Tragedy

Thursday, 16 April 2015

It has been one year since the Sewol Ferry tragedy in which 304 passengers were died. Most of them are high school student from Danwon High School (Ansan City). The ferry sank on its voyage from Incheon to Jeju on April 16, 2014. The tragedy, among South Korea’s worst peacetime disasters, led to criminal convictions, the resignation of the country’s prime minister and the death of the billionaire religious leader who owned the ferry.

The video below showed how the ship sank.

When the ferry sinking, some students took some videos. It was so heartbroken for me, when I keep hearing the words "I don't wanna die". Some of them still smiling at the beginning without knowing what will happen to them in the next few minutes. I send my condolences to all the victims and may all the family members will be stronger in living their life.


  1. It is a heartbreaking news back then. Sedih sangat sebab boleh nampak dan ada rakaman vid ni.

    1. memang sedih...
