Chuseok travel update: All roads running smoothly but Incheon airport sees record crowds Updated: 2017-10-01 12:14:06 KST

Let's start with an update on the traffic and travel situation here in Korea, as it's the first weekend of the Chuseok holiday.
The usual mass exodus of cars from cities has not materialized, because of this year's unusually long 10-day break has spread out the congestion.
For the second day in a row, traffic on the expressways have been running relatively smoothly, and authorities say it has been no worse than a regular weekend.
However rain has started to fall throughout the country so people are advised to drive carefully.
The roads may not be busy, but it seems the airports are.
Korea's main gateway, Incheon International Airport, reported a record 115-thousand took flights out of the country on Saturday, and that number could be even greater today.
Because of the huge numbers, travelers are advised head to the airport early, as security and check-in lines could get backed up.
Buses and trains have also been seeing high number of passengers and many routes were sold out today both online and at stations.
