Jindo revisited
JINDO - The night at Paengmok Harbour is colder than that night one year ago when I was here to cover the Sewol tragedy. I spent a week here then, bearing witness to a kind of carnage that could be seen with the increasing body count each time a boat approached and the wailing that followed after identifications were made by family members.

Kim Man-hee's left eye went blind following cataract surgery in 1980 when he was 50. It was a fatal blow to someone who devoted his life to drawing traditional folk paintings or "minhwa."

From Paengmok port

Quenching more than thirst
From FISHING BOAT, Jindo - It was about 7 a.m. Monday. Four photographers including this reporter rented a boat to get near the site where the ferry Sewol sank. An armada of ships, small boats and dinghies were scattered throughout the area. The sea was calm, making one wonder if it was the same sea that had engulfed hundreds of students.
