Thank you for your comment. Here we have the key to the description:

G - General purpose (Hood unit with side walkways);
T - Turbocharged diesel engine;
22 - 12 cylinders [+ 10 to designate the 645E-series engine];
C - three powered axles per each Flexicoil truck [Co-Co];
W - [wide gauge] D77-series traction motors (which will only fit axle widths 1435 mm gauge and above);
-2 - Use of the wide underframe, and certain mechanical and electrical fitments.

As far as can be determined, this is the only GT22CW or GT22CW-2 built in Korea for domestic use, but the Hyundai builder's number series records are not fully recorded. If further information is available, this author would be pleased to see this.
