Shit. That company caters a great deal to the international student crown (the Koreans mainly) and the resident Korean community.

I have a bad feeling that I'm going to see some very sad posts on my Facebook wall soon.

cbc went to mi-joo travel but they were closed; a lady and her son had just shown up to try and go to the office and they were interviewed, the lady says that she heard 9 people had died and she was very sad... because they were all korean....

I hate to say it but it's kind of a cultural thing. They're not being dicks or anything, it's just...yeah. Hard to explain.

To expand:
It's kinda like there's only 70million Koreans (North + South + expats) worldwide so its sad when they lose their numbers.

It's also why they're extremely full of pride when a Korean win an olympic event, scientific breakthrough, samsung etc

I think that tour company is going to go under lol

10 years ago, I once worked at Korean travel agency in Burnaby.
buses they use for Rockey mountain and west cost tours are SHT!
Always had a bus broken down or stuck in snow, in the middle of no where

Also, most of passengers are visitors from korea, who pays for their medical?
I'm sure these low price no margin bus tour packages dont include insurance.

I haven't been on a single bus that is equipped with seatbelts, except for that fold-out front seat beside the stairwell that has one on some coach buses.

Whoever's in the ICU will fall right back into a coma after seeing the medical bills.

travel insurance is only around $30 and a lot of insurance plans and credit cards include it as well; i would hope they're all covered


as for Mijoo's bus safety/quality, apparently WA state has had them rated as "satisfactory"

Is probably one of those cases where tour bus company's cheap out/skip on maintenance and check ups on their tours buses to cut cost down.

Not a bus expert, but from the image, that bus looks old and should of been decommissioned.

Bad luck for the company, with Koreans/Asian, once a company gets into such accident, they won't stay in business much longer unless they do something dramatic to improve it.
