Memorial service held for Hyocheon HS students killed on their field trip.
Earlier this week Suncheon's Hyocheon High School held a memorial service for the two students killed in a bus accident while on their school trip to Jeju. A lot of questions about the accident remain, including why was a taxi driver behind the wheel of the bus? (Well, Jeju is a popular spot for trips this time of year, but still.) Running a Naver search will turn up plenty of photos and videos reporting on the accident, though I don't really have the stomach for them.
I did come across, though, this article and subsequent video of students destroying the floral arrangements after the service. The above photo comes from this article and seems to have some more information. Take a look at the video below and, if you can, tell me a little about what the articles say.
