When I lived in the US, I watched the news every night. I was generally knowledgeable about current events. I keep up with US and world news fairly well through various news apps, but I only pick up on Korean news when I specifically seek it out. However, a simple walk through Korean streets tells me what is still in the news here- the Sewol Ferry. Yellow ribbons and banners line many streets, reminding me that this tragedy is still fresh to many.
