Today (the 20th) the sky was gray all day. In particular, a special fine dust advisory was issued in the metropolitan area for the first time in half a year. There was even a thick fog that prevented the plane from taking off. The gray sky that makes it scary to go outside like this is expected to continue until tomorrow.
First news, this is reporter Park Min-gyu.
The road was covered with fog.
All you see is the tail lights of the car in front and the traffic lights.
This is due to thick fog and fine dust.
Even when the day is bright, this stuffiness continues.
Namsan Tower and Gwanghwamun were covered in haze.
The whole city was in a state of ‘zero clock’, where you could not see an inch ahead.
Our reporter team is currently filming the 63 Building in Yeouido.
It also looks blurry.
Even though our location is about 2km straight from the building, it’s not too far away, it’s hard to see.
As this situation continued throughout the afternoon, fewer citizens than usual visited Hangang Park.

[남상현/충남 천안시 두정동 : 좋은 뷰를 기대했는데 오늘은 거의 안 보이는 수준이라서 실망을 많이 했습니다. (실망을 하셨어요?) 네. 괜히 나왔다…]
Flight cancellations and delays followed one after another due to fine dust and fog that covered the country.
Flight 65 did not take off on time at Gimpo Airport alone.
Fine dust was prevalent not only in the metropolitan area but also in Chungcheong, Gwangju, Daegu, and Ulsan.
As the air flow is not easing, it is expected that tomorrow will be similar.
The concentration of ultrafine dust, which is particularly harmful to the respiratory system, is also high, so be careful.

Starting with Jeju tomorrow night, rain and strong winds blow across the country, and the air quality is expected to improve from Monday.
