Tourists at Gwanghwamun Square in central Seoul, left, walk past sprinklers of cool mist on Tuesday as the temperature rose to 31 degrees Celsius (87.8 degrees Fahrenheit), while in Busan, right, residents face the wrath of Typhoon Prapiroon. The tropical cyclone barreled through Korea’s southern region on Tuesday and continued north toward waters off the east coast. It is forecast to pass near the Dokdo islets today and weaken to a tropical storm. [NEW1, YONHAP]
