Most information is found on the Korean Wikipedia. You can use Google Translate through it, I did some research on the Korean Expressway network last year for the Dutch wegenwiki.

This section of No.23 Provincial Road (so called 자유로) has been incoporated into No.77 National Highway since 2008.

KOREAN ROAD NUMBER SYSTEM

Quote:
Basic Formula

from West to East : an even number
from South to North : an odd number

Quote:

Trunk Line

from West to East : 10, 20, 30, 40, ....
from South to North : 15, 25, 35, 45, .....

AncillaryTrunk Line

if ancillary trunk line is on between trunk line No. 10 and No. 20, an even number is given, like 12, 14, 16, 18.
or if ancillary trunk line is on between trunk line No. 15 and No.20, an odd number is given, like 17, 19, 21, 23.

for example :
from West to East : 10-20(12,14,16,18), 20-30(22,24,26,28), 30-40(32,34,36,38), ...
from South to North : 15-25(17,19,21,23), 25-35(27,29,31,33), 35-45(37,39,41,43), ...

Short-Distance Branch Line

if it's the branch line of trunk line No.20(from West to East), it will become 20X type(202, 204, 206, ...)
or if it's the branch line of trunk line No.25 (from South to North), it will become 10X type(251, 253, 255, ...)

Metropolis Loop Line

Formula : Metropolitan area postal number's first figure + 00
for example if this line is in Seoul or Gyeonggi province(100), the number will be 1XX type.
or if this line is in Daejeon(300), the number will be 3XX type.

Gyeongbu Expressway

Gyeongbu Expressway is Korea's first highway, so the number assigned on this express way is, regradless of Number System, No. 1.

from South to North : an odd number is given, like 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, ...

I think there's no formula in this section or I couldn't find it.

I look forward that one day Chinese highways can connect Korean highways via Pyongyang and Dandong!

The red line on top indicates an expressway. Without is just a surface road. In most cases I've encountered, a doubled digit (11, 22, etc.) indicates a ring road or segment of a ring.

Has the exchange of fire between North and South led to any security related issues on the highways there? Especially near the border.

There is an 8-lane expressway adjacent to the DMZ.

Left: Imjin River & border with North Korea.

Tow pictures captured by user Slodi. I believe it's road nbr 7.
Road markings are quite interesting on the top picture.

What about them. Aside from the fact the the lane markings are the same as those in the US/Canada, there's nothing special about them.

I did not say it clearly enough. I mean the way lanes are split and separated by double continuous lines. 2+2+1. It's not that usual.

Top link shows just a local road towards Bulguska Temple.

Road 7 is under second link.

There are these near the border. They look like over engineered advertising hoardings but if anything bad happens all the concrete at the top drops on the road destroying it. Reassuring to anyone living south of them, slightly concerning to anyone living to the north. There is also a different design on smaller roads which doesn't have a roof, I guess they are designed to topple inwards and block the road with debris. I will take some pictures myself at some point.

Nice video of Expressways 15, 100 and 330. (in that order)

Expressway 15 is the main north-south route along the west coast of Korea. Expressway 100 is the ring road of Seoul and Expressway 330 is a new link to the Songdo skyscraper forest.
