      The second terminal at Incheon International Airport was put through a comprehensive security test on Thursday ahead of its opening in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

      Some 2,250 people acting as tourists were screened for hazardous liquids and non-metallic objects as they went through the body scanners. They were paid W50,000 to W100,000 to take part in the test run, with the total bill amounting to W200 million (US$1=W1,134).
