I am a Uzbek student in China and I want to come back to Uzbekistan via flights from Shanghai to Seoul (Incheon) and Seoul (Incheon) to Tashkent. Transit time is 19-20 hours; do I need a transit visa for South Korea?

Please give me official references. Thanks.

Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines:

TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Visa required, except for Passengers transiting through Seoul (ICN) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 24 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination.

So no, you don't need a visa.
