It was decided to suspend 22 regular trains, including the Gyeongbu, Gyeongjeon, Daegu, Donghae, and Yeongdong lines, and modify 12 sections. A KORAIL official said, “The decision whether to adjust additional trains depends on the course of the typhoon.” “If there is an important schedule, it can be changed in advance, and the purchased ticket is automatically refunded without any fees, even if it has not been cancelled.” If purchased with cash, it can be returned at stations nationwide within a year.
