The (not so) new pollution

Smog in Seoul
Ultrafine dust density soars to ‘very bad’ level in greater Seoul:

The greater Seoul area was blanketed by extraordinarily heavy concentrations of locally generated ultrafine particles on Friday, but its air quality will return to normal over the weekend due to rainfall, a state monitoring agency said.

The institute forecast that the density of ultrafine and fine particles will remain at bad to very bad levels in the central region, including Seoul, throughout the day, as locally generated air pollutants accumulate due to stagnant atmospheric conditions.

But the central region’s air quality will return to normal beginning Saturday afternoon due to atmospheric diffusion and rainfall, it said. (Yonhap)

When I woke I could only see about 4 blocks. Turns out it wasn’t my eyeglasses needing a good scrubbing after all.
