Amugae Kim (33), who takes the subway line 9 and leaves from Yeouido Station in Seoul to Yeomchang Station, said, “All of the people flocked to the subway, creating confusion. I just spent 4 subway cars,” he said. “I usually get home in 30 minutes, but today it will take about an hour.” A 28-year-old office worker in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do, said, “When I went to work, it was not snowy, so I rode a bicycle to work. I thought it would be faster to walk.”
Around 7 p.m. that day, the vicinity of the Seoul subway, including Sinchon Station and Noryangjin Station, were crowded with people walking carefully. A delivery driver who carefully drives a motorcycle with both feet on the ground and a citizen who slipped while riding a bicycle also stood out. Online, “It took 15 minutes to get home from work, but it took more than an hour because the car was blocked”, “I went to work early because it snowed, but the arrival time is much later than usual”, “However, snow removal work was done today rather than last time.” The article was posted.
