The Line 9 subway, which stops at National Assembly Station, will run 56 more services a day from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. this weekend when the crowds on the riverside park is expected to hit their peak, the municipality said.

Seoul’s Yeouido draws thousands of people a day for the festival.

On April 7 last year during the festival, for example, up to 9,000 people visited Yeouido. It is expected to be most crowded in the afternoon, according to an official from the city government.

An increased number of security guards will be placed at five stations in the area to ensure public safety, it said.

Cars will be blocked from major roads in Yeouido for 24 hours from noon to the next day between April 4 and 12.
