Traffic congestion is a concern as large-scale rallies are scheduled to take place throughout downtown Seoul on the weekend.

The Freedom Unification Party, led by Pastor Kwang-Hoon Jeon, will hold a rally in front of the Dongwha Duty Free Shop on Sejong-daero from 1:00 pm on the 3rd.

At 4:00 p.m., the 17th Candlelight Parade will be held from City Hall Station to the main road in front of Sungnyemun Gate, hosted by the Candlelight Transition Movement.

On the same day, several rallies are scheduled in Yeouido, including the National Bus Workers' Convention hosted by the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions' Public Transportation Union from noon.

A police official said, "If possible, use public transportation such as the subway, and if you use a vehicle, please check traffic information in advance."
