Would presume Jan 1 and the issue was they ran out of miles purchased for 2014 or something similar

Maybe the proper term is booking, but here on DDF most call a hold a hold and if you ticketed it "I booked it" or "I ticketed it".

Just made another "booking", got them to hold it till the dep date (mid Jan).

There is a whole procedure to use miles for family, but once it is done, you are good to go.

From the KE website.
Hopefully it comes back as planned.
*cross fingers*

※ Chase Ultimate Rewards point transfer is temporarily unavailable. It is planned to re-open during Jan, 2015.

Via FT.

Seems like per KE site this will return in January 2015.

Awesome news, See below on reply from Chase regarding Korean air

Dear *********,

Thank you for contacting Chase about transferring points
to Korean Air.

Please note, for contractual reasons, Korean Air was
removed as a points transfer partner in Ultimate Rewards.
I apologize for any inconvenience caused.

However, Chase has renegotiated the contract for Korean
Air and it will return as a points transfer partner on
January 25, 2015.
