Gwangju-Jeollanamdo hold commemoration for Sewol disaster

 

Today marks the 5th memorial of the Sewol Ferry disaster that killed some 304 people in 2014.

 

The Gwangju Citizens' Group for Sewol Ferry Disaster said Tuesday that it will hold a commemoration at the May 18 Democracy Plaza in downtown Gwangju from 4:16 p.m.

 

Under the title of '5 Years since Sewol, Today's Us,' the event will be a place to share stories of how people's lives have changed since the accident.

 

There will be a series of commemorative events prepared in Jindo as well. A ritual will be held at Jindo Gymnasium from 9 a.m. to console victims' spirits and a commemorative play and art performances will also take place at around Paengmok Port where victims' bodies were recovered through.

 

At Mokpo New Port where the ferry is currently placed, a commemorative mass will be held from 2 p.m. while there is an exhibit of art pieces created by the victims' families and artists at Mokpo 5-way Junction Art Center.
