A Jeju Air Boeing 737-800, registration HL8322 performing flight 7C-264 from Seoul Gimpo to Pusan (South Korea) with 138 people on board, was on final approach to Pusan's runway 36L at 12:08L (03:08Z) when the aircraft just before touchdown rolled left causing the left wing tip to contact the runway surface. The crew initiated a go around, climbed to 5000 feet, positioned for another approach to runway 35L and landed without further incident.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 90 minutes, then departed for the return flight 7C-265 with 158 people on board.

Following the arrival in Seoul the aircraft is still on the ground 5 days and 7 hours later.

South Korea's Ministry of Transport reported on Mar 15th 2021, the left winglet was damaged when the aircraft unexpectedly rolled to the left causing the left wing tip to contact the ground. Jeju's Maintenance did not detect any damage to the left wing tip in a post flight inspection after landing in Pusan and released the aircraft to flight. The winglet damage was discovered only after landing back in Seoul. ARAIB (Accident Investigation Board) have opened an investigation into the occurrence.
