A ferry traveling from Incheon to Jeju Island and carrying 475 passengers sank off the coast of Jindo on April 16. Over 300 of the passengers were students from Danwon High School in Ansan, taking a school trip. The entertainment world halted activities cancelling drama, variety, and music programs, artists delaying comebacks, and celebrities cancelling or postponing scheduled appearances.
