Among the nine victims, three died while they were stuck in their flooded apartment in half-sous-ground ("banjiha"), according to the ministry.

A landslide buried the house of another victim in the mountain province of Gangwon. President Yoon, who went to the Banjiha apartment on Tuesday, admitted that the South Koreans had "undergone a lot of damage" and asked, during a government meeting, to take care of the most disadvantaged . "People with financial or physical difficulties are necessarily more vulnerable to natural disasters," he said. According to the latest Gallup Korea survey, Mr. Yoon's popularity rating has dropped only 24% since he entered in May. He is criticized for not going to the government's emergency control center when the rain started to fall. According to local media, his absence was due to a flood around his house, but his services denied this explanation, ensuring that he had decided to stay with him because his team already had the situation in hand.
