Seungjae and Yian are still on their trip, and learn some traditional martial arts together. Yiel is so sweet! Sam takes William and Ben to visit Block B Bastarz uncles, and then have dinner with PO. It felt weird that they only invited him and not the other guys. They played well with the kids too. Then William and Ben visit a market and Ben gets a surprise. I've never seen that happen before, poor Ben! Sian and his sisters have a little role in a drama, and get some acting help from Shinee's Minho. We spend the morning with Gunhoo and Naeun. Then their father takes them to see some flowers and play at the playground. They try to find their way through a maze, and someone gets lost.

Yi Seung-jun's Documentary "In the Absence" About Sewol Tragedy (CW)

"In the Absence is an unflinching look at the Sewol ferry disaster in South Korea. Employing extensive archival material and in-depth historical research, it tells the story of the Sewol, a ferry that capsized and sank in the Yellow Sea on 16 April 2014, killing more than 300 people, mostly high school students on a field trip. Visual and audio material gathered at the time is integrated with new footage to create what is both a compelling narrative and a valuable historical document." CONTENT WARNING: This doc features footage from inside the ferry/its passengers and real time footage as it sank (though nothing inside the cabin of people as it was sinking).
