[Ratings: Wed, 04.16.14] Dramas and Variety Shows Cancel to Focus on Sunken Ferry
Wednesday night was without entertainment as the entire nation put its focus on the tragedy of the ferry that sank near Jindo in the early mornings of April 16.
The ferry was holding more than 400 passengers with the majority being students on a class field trip to Jejudo. Six have been confirmed dead with close to 300 still missing.
As information about the tragedy began to spread, broadcast stations quickly made the decision to cancel all drama and variety show programs and aired news specials on the incoming updates on the incident.
It is unclear if broadcasts will run as scheduled on April 17.
We send our deepest condolences and prayers.
