On the 8th anniversary of the Sewol ferry disaster, President Moon Jae-in said, "To reveal the truth of the Sewol ferry without a sanctuary is to send children away completely and to solidify the safety of the country."

President Moon Jae-in said in an SNS post on the morning of the 16th, saying, "There are still things that have not been revealed."

He also urged the "Special Investigation Committee on Social Disasters, which was launched to find out the truth, support damage, and improve the system, to do their best until the end."

President Moon said, "It hurts more in April every year."

Then, referring to the '4.16 Memory Classroom', a remembrance of the Danwon High School classroom, and the memory culture festival 'Again, Light', he said, "Our determination not to repeat the tragedy will create new hope beyond the 'memory wall'. "Everyone's actions will be cherished and we will open a world that respects life," he said.

President Moon emphasized, "The Sewol family is getting through each day by touching the child's hair on the T-shirt." "The whole nation will always remember it together."
