What happened at the danwon high school?
i wont go into too much detail (wikipedia will be a better help for more info), but on april 16, 2014, a ferry carrying 476 people (mostly year 2 students from danwon high school going on a trip to jeju island) sank. 304 passengers died in the disaster (again, mostly high school students, and mainly bc they were advised to stay in their rooms. Had they left and were on the deck, most of them would have been able to be saved). news at first reported false numbers of how many were rescued, but real numbers later started coming up, and death toll only kept increasing, without many rescues.
there was a lot of government corruption affiliated with this (that people still dont know the full details to), and only recently has searches begun again for the 10 still missing (yes, for three years, they were in the sea because the gov ordered the cease searches for the missing bodies)
it honestly breaks my heat and makes me cry every time i think about this disaster.
