Visa Free Entry for Philippine Tourists

I am visiting Seoul with my family late December and already preparing required docs for visa. Is the new ruling for a visa free entry to Korea only applies to tourists entering through Yanyang Int'l Airport?  We are entering via Incheon International Airport so we still need a visa?  Hoping for your quick reply.

    Good morning! When we check it with ' The Ministry of Culture and Tourism', that plan is only for group tourist not a individual tourist. Thank you.

      Hi as far as i know the VISA FREE policy was applicable only for Philippine Tourists who availed Group Tours from chosen agencies who offered charter flights via Yang Yang International Airport. So if you and you're family is planning to travel on your own, you probably all need to acquired a VISA.
