According the Korean news, an OZ flight 8942 (A321)from Cheju island to Gimpo was hit by lightening on 6/4 around 16:55 local time. It was approaching the airport and decended to 300 meters, when the aircraft did this, it was hit by hail and thunder and the very front of the plane (where the radar is in, dropped). In addition to this, there was a big hole in the engine and the glass on the cockpit cracked.
The captain immediately declared emergency and went around once to see if there was no problem with the landing gear and safely landed.
This flight had elementary school children that went to their school trip and were returning to Seoul. The cabin was in a pnaick when there was damage to the aircraft but it safely landed without any major injuries.

Congrats to Asiana and the captain of the aircraft who didn't panick and landed the plane safely at GIM.
I never heard of the radar section flying off an aircraft upon approach. Wow, glad for the elementary children though.
