Fourteen months have passed, but there is literally no difference from my last photo of the same "pose" of this casualty. The difference, indeed, is only time. Lately I heard that this particular South Korean government still wants to preserve her as a monument, but it can all change with the new government, as people remember less and less about this tragedy.

Thank you for your comments.

I also don't think that the remembrance of this tragedy should be focused on the complete ferry's hull.

Here's the best documentary (imho) on the subject. I felt sad and angry at the same time, watching the inert and inept authorities doing nothing while there was still time to save large number of those who ended up perishing in the accident.

For those of us who didn't remember this tragedy, here is a brief reminder: "...The Sewol sank on April 16 last year, killing 304 people, most of them high school students on an organised trip.

The ferry's captain, Lee Jun-Seok was found guilty of murder and was sentenced to life imprisonment..."

Do they really need the whole ship as a monument? All respect to the victims but wouldn't a piece of the hull with the names of those who died be more fitting? The rest of the money that would be used for maintenance of the monument could go to charity.

Thanks for sharing and explanation
Best Regards
