A growing number of South Koreans are joining a "yellow ribbon" campaign, to show their support for families still waiting for news of their loved ones who were on the ferry that sank on April 16.
To ease national grief, college students are encouraging people to wear yellow ribbons, a custom borrowed from the US to express hope that the missing will return, and change their online profile pictures to include yellow ribbons to support victims.
The campaign was started by a group of around 30 university students - members of a student organisation from various campuses called "Autonomous, Alter, Active Life Together" (ALT) - and swiftly spread across the country.
"The original meaning of the yellow ribbon is the wish for a safe return," said Lee Min-joo, a member of ALT.
South Korea mourns one of its worst ever disasters, a ferry sinking off the southwestern coast near Jindo Island, that will likely result in the death of more than 300 people, most of them high school children.
