Today, on the one-year anniversary of the sinking of the Sewol ferry in South Korea, President Park Geun-hye announced that the boat will be salvaged.

Elise Hu, NPR’s correspondent in Seoul speaks with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about what has changed, as far as regulations go, in the last year since the ship sank 11 miles off the coast of South Korea, killing more than 300 people – most of them teenagers.
