Actress Park Bo Young spoke up about how much the Sewol Ferry incident pains her.
During a wrap-up interview of “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” on April 17, Park Bo Young stated that she would lift up the Sewol Ferry if she had super strength like Do Bong Soon. She added, “Since my character Do Bong Soon is very light-hearted, I’m afraid that this may sound light-hearted also. But I am one of many citizens who were in pain after hearing news of the Sewol Ferry.”
The actress continued, “I don’t understand why people are hesitant to speak about the ferry incident. Sewol Ferry isn’t a governmental issue. I saw a quote online that said, ‘We cannot forget because it has not ended.’ There actually are students that still haven’t been able to go back to their families’ arms. I don’t think we should ever forget about the incident to support those beautiful students that were on Sewol Ferry.”
Park Bo Young mentioned that the drama was actually filmed near the site of the Sewol Ferry candlelight vigil once. “People’s shouts were able to be heard during filming, but no one made a fuss about it,” she explained. “Everyone thought it was to be expected.”
Lastly, the star said, “I believe every citizen feels the same way about the Sewol Ferry incident. My heart still aches every time I pass by Gwanghwamun.”
