People in Korea have just wrapped up a long holiday weekend that included festive occasions like Children's Day and Buddha's Birthday.
But instead of recharging at home or celebrating the holidays, many people chose to pay respects to the victims of the Sewol-ho ferry disaster.
At a group memorial altar set up in the city of Ansan where most of the victims were from visitors from all around the country came with friends or family.
Since it opened a week ago, the Ansan Memorial Hall has received about 1.3 million visitors.
Outside the mass memorial hall about 10 parents of some of the youngest ferry passengers continued their silent protest for a fourth day on Tuesday.
They held up signs expressing their discontent with the government over its handling of tragedy.
Many of the victims' families blame the government for the slow rescue process.
