Sewol Ferry Disaster Anniversary: Remembering All The Victims

Sewol Ferry Disaster Anniversary: Remembering All The Victims


On the 16th of April 2014, a ferry carrying more than 400 people, with the majority being students from one high school, Danwon High School, capsized. About 172 people managed to escape and were rescued, while more than 300 innocent lives were lost on that day. There are many theories, none of which we will be addressing now, as to the cause of the accident and whether it could have been avoided. We just want to honour the victims. We managed to get in contact with the school and we were exploring ways we could honour them. Unfortunately, we underestimated how long the process would take and didn’t have enough time to finish the project we were working on. Together with the school, although we were able to speak with some of the survivors, we decided not to interview them on camera.

Nevertheless, through talking with some of the families and our independent research, we have gathered the names and pictures of the victims as a way to remember and honour them. We would also like to wish Gwon Mingyung, Lee Seung Hyun, Park Chaeyeon, Kim Joo-a, Kim Daehyun and Teacher Kim Chowon, six Sewol victims celebrating their birthdays in April, a big and happy birthday.
