Lunar New Year's Day traffic eases, expected to pick up again Saturday Updated: 2014-01-31 18:14:39 KST

Let's start with the traffic conditions on the nation's expressways on this Lunar New Year's Day
As you might expect with millions of people heading to and from their hometowns over this holiday period, major roads in and out of the metropolitan Seoul area have been jam-packed today, but congestion is easing as we move into the night.
The Korea Expressway Corporation says around 4-hundred thousand cars returned to Seoul on this Friday, while nearly the same number of cars left the capital.
Traffic coming back to Seoul is forecast to start getting congested from Saturday morning and steadily pick up during the day.
As of just a few moments ago, the estimated drive time from Seoul to the southern port city of Busan is 4 hours 40 minutes, Seoul to Gwangju is 3 hours 20 minutes and to the eastern city of Gangneung, it'll take 2 hours 40 minutes.
