Some facts omitted from media.
The ship build by Japan in 1994. Max Passenger: 804 Ship's Name: Naminoue-Maru Sold to Korea in 2012. Ship's Name: Sewol The new owner made unapproved modification from original spec and thus changing the center of gravity. 1) Additional deck was added and increased the passenger capacity from 804 to 921. 2) Removal of front loading-ramp to increase the bow cargo space. 3) Life boat was reduced to extend the new deck. 4) Cargo containers were tide down with rope, not chain.

Interesting in the modifications. Also I know how the media can omit or make up facts when they publish.
