KAL TPE-ICN over/around Typhoon Talim?

I'm in Taiwan right now, planning on flying on KAL (book as a DL codeshare) from TPE-ICN this coming Friday as the first leg back to the US. I've been watching the evolving path of Typhoon Talim, which is currently putting it directly between the two cities at the time of my flight. Would I expect this flight to still happen in these conditions? Would the flight route around the storm, or possibly over the outside portion of it? Trying to decide whether or not to pre-emptively reroute, since without a current weather bulletin, I'd need to pay the change fee. Advice appreciated

In the USA, I haven't heard much about this weather event. Is it expected to impact ICN flights (late Friday afternoon and Tuesday morning) and/or downtown Seoul? I'll be arriving and departing on big airplanes.

The storm will be well south of ICN on Friday (but north of Taiwan, which is my concern), and probably dissipated by Tuesday.

Taiwan's tracker site is here:

Just monitor Korean Air's homepage. Right now, on their site (in Korean) it only mentions Okinawa flights being affected.

Seoul weather has been consistently expected to be warm and sunny during the next week or so according to weather.com and other forecasts.
