Local here: That is correct.

However: Normal ticket bound to the route. So as the alternative 
connection changes the route the ticket would probably not be valid 

Still I don't think you need to worry. Connecting trains usually wait 
and in this case I think it is actually the same train just relabelled 
(ICN 543 arriving on track 3 and leaving 3min later as ICN 1543 from 
track 3).

So if your worried, the best thing probably is to talk to the conductor 
once you are on the train...
