Thankfully a major accident was averted

The airline said the Airbus A321-200 was carrying about 200 passengers on a domestic flight to Daegu International Airport, about 240 km southeast of Seoul. When the aircraft was approximately 200 m (650 ft) above the ground, a passenger seated near the emergency door manually opened the door lever. In the video related to the incident, it can be seen how the passengers are shouting after the door opened. The footage showed a strong wind blowing inside the plane with the doors open in mid-air, causing passengers’ hair to fly wildly. Fortunately, there was no major accident, the plane was safely landed on time.
