A Jeju Air Boeing 737-800, registration HL8089 performing flight 7C-133 from Seoul Gimpo to Jeju (South Korea) with 138 people on board, was on approach to Jeju's runway 07 when the first officer called for a go around below 1000 feet AGL due to landing gear and flaps not yet in position. The captain however extended landing gear and flaps and ocntinued for a safe landing.

The captain however was concerned that if the landing was delayed by a go around they would need to divert to Seoul Incheon Airport. The captain was suspended for 4 weeks, the first officer for 2 weeks.
