    Torrential rains are falling in southern parts of the country on Tuesday as the seasonal monsoon begins in full force.

    According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, up to 300 mm of rain is expected for most southern regions by late Tuesday. But in the capital region, rain will only fall in the southern part of Gyeonggi Province.
