    Departing at 1AM, ORD should be pretty quiet. Short of a lot of snow shutting the airport down (a LOT of snow) you should be fine. Your biggest danger is that the flight to ORD cancels - hopefully there's another one after yours. If not and your flight does cancel, be sure to ask about alternate routing - maybe through IAH to the west coast then catch a flight to ICN.

    Technically your ORD-ICN flight isn't a redeye. The night departure and early morning arrival is due to the large time difference and long flight time - ICN is 16 or so hours ahead of ORD so it's already about 7PM in ICN when you're leaving ORD at 1AM. Your flight includes a night and a half - depart ORD 1AM on the 29th and arrive ICN at 6AM on the 31st - but you'll only see one night since you'll jump 24 hours ahead when you cross the international date line.
