Regions across the country will continue to sizzle on Friday as an intense heat wave persists.
The Korea Meteorological Administration says heat wave alerts will remain in place as temperatures are forecast to hit around 35 degrees Celsius under clear, sunny skies.
Morning lows are expected to range between 21 and 26 degrees Celsius, while afternoon highs surge to 29 to 37 degrees.
In some inland areas, the mercury may spike to 38 degrees amid high humidity levels.
Precautions should be taken when outdoors.
Health experts recommend avoiding outdoor activities during peak heat hours, drinking plenty of fluids and staying in cool, shaded areas to avoid heat stroke and other heat-related illnesses.
