On April 16, 2014, a ferry carrying predominantly young students departed from Incheon en route to Jeju.  The ferry boat capsized and due to a combination of corporate greed, irresponsibility of the captain and crew, and the petty bickering  between various Korean government agencies, the end result was an ineffective and late response which ultimately led to over 300 young lives that were needlessly lost.
