The record-breaking heat wave continued to grip the entire nation as Typhoon Francisco is moving toward Korea.
The mercury went as high as 40 degrees Celsius in some parts of the country, making it the hottest day of the season so far.
The Korea Meteorological Administration forecast Monday the eighth typhoon of the season will lose strength as it approaches the Korean Peninsula before landing in the southern coastal region on Tuesday night.
The typhoon, which will bring heavy rain and strong winds, is expected to help alleviate sweltering heat.
