[VIDEO NEWS] 23-hour lines for the Chuseok harvest holiday

Aug 29,2018
1) People are still physically waiting in line to get tickets despite Korail having announced that it’s possible to get train tickets for the Chuseok harvest holiday (Sept. 23-25) online starting this year.

2) A worker from Korail said that the number of people physically waiting is on the decline, but it’s hard to say that the number has reduced by much compared to this past Lunar New Year.

3) Many people still physically come because they believe online ticketing is not as reliable as getting tickets at the stalls.

4) Some people have waited starting from the day before or from dawn, with one even having waited for 23 hours.

5) Online ticketing for the Yeongnam region (Busan, Ulsan, Daegu, North and South Gyeongsang) was possible until 3 p.m. Aug. 28.

6) Tickets for the Jeolla regions, Honam and Yeongdong line are now available.
