Two mothers whose children died in the Sewol ferry disaster visited the University of Seoul (UOS) and held a meeting with its students to share what they have gone through and answered the students’ questions on April 25th. The event was planned by Siwon, the 2016 Student Council, the 2nd Sewol Ferry Disaster Anniversary Planning Group, the union of UOS students to remind other students of the Sewol ferry disaster and the victims, and Howl, the UOS social humanities academy group. About 50 students attended, watched a video about the disaster, and had a conversation with the families of the deceased students.

Before the meeting started, there was a peaceful atmosphere, but after watching the video and listening to the families’ anecdotes for about three hours, many in the audience cried for several minutes. The families argued that students should be more concerned with associated issues like their struggle to reveal the truth behind their children’s deaths. They also added that some people have criticized their acts, claiming that the families wanted more money from the government; however, all they wanted was to have the public know and understand those whom they have lost, “their beloved children.” Due to this meeting, UOS students who attended seemed to pay more attention to the fading memory of Sewol catastrophe.
