When to re-issue a RTW ticket

I have bought a RTW in Business and will be starting from Seoul next month.
Now I need to change some routings in the middle of the trip (within USA). Shall I re-issue the ticket after flying the 1st sector?

It doesn't matter... But the sooner you change it, the more seats will be available.

It depends.... Has the fare gone down from RTW's starting in ICN? If so, you may be able to take advantage of a new fare by reissuing now. Otherwise, I would wait until after the first segment.

I am not sure whether the fare has come down or not.

By reading other posts, I thought I no longer able to ticket RTW from other countries by paying their fare (I am based in Hong Kong). If I re-issue the ticket before starting my RTW (from Seoul), does it mean I need to pay the Hong Kong fare now?

Please correct me if I am wrong.
