Coast guard footage shows the recovery of a South Korean ferry after it hit rocks near Hongdo Island.
The vessel was towed by rescue boats following the accident on Tuesday morning
All 104 passengers and five crew on board were rescued.
It's in stark contrast to the Sewol ferry capsize just months earlier, the country's worst maritime disaster in almost half a century.
Fifteen of the Sewol's crew are on trial over the accident in which more than 300 people died, the majority of them schoolchildren.
