Big Specialties in Seoul Metro


Seoul is a model city in the field of “Transportation.” Unlike other cities, Seoul Metro runs 365 days a year except for leap year, when it runs 366 days, and you can enjoy Seoul City Tour by subway with various routes and numerous themes. For instance, by taking the subway line No.5, you can see all modern aspects of Seoul by stopping at Yeouinaru, Seodaemun, Gwanghwamun, Jongro 3ga, Dongdaemun, and so on. But those are just part of package and there is more in it except those! So, From now on, I’ll let you know the unknown specialties of Seoul Metro. The train is now approaching. Please behind yellow line and watch your step. 🙂


First specialty is Happy Bookstore. Is it cool enough that every transfer stations in line No.5~8 has strong scent of books? This bookstore also won the grand prize in ‘Creative Management’ which was held at the Seoul City Hall on 19 November 2009 and it’s widely perceived as a wonderful place by Seoulites because it’s not a commercial space, but a cultural space in public transportation. It’s a real shelter for citizens who are leading busy lives in the city.



Second specialty is Famous eateries in Station. Especially In ‘Jongno 3ga station’ with sub. line No.5, there is a famous eatery specializing in tteokguk(rice-cake soup) and dumpling soup. I could realize its popularity because people lined the route outside the restaurant. Its meat bun was so cute that it was a waste to be eating it alone so I got it to go a little. It reminds me the phrase, “What looks good tastes good.” 😉 The next stop of this train is Gwanghwamun station. I also paid a brief visit to another famous restaurant, BRCD(Bread is Ready, Coffee is Done) in this station. I felt comfortable with harmonious atmosphere and wood interiors as soon as I walked in.




Last speciality is the fact Seoul Metro is filled with many careful concerns of every tiny bits of life for citizens. It has entrances for the disabled and kids and in the train, straps are various in height. Every platform has Screen Door for the purpose of preventing accidents and there is a beautiful piece of poetry on the Screen Door that really comforts and relieves citizens. And the first picture shows people who provide a cup of hot tea for citizens in subway station. They are very considerate and kind.

All right then. Are you all in agreement on that Seoul metro is not just a common form of transportation but a fashionable, easy and neat form of transportation for young romance seekers or solitary people or just family visits? As you saw, Seoul Metro is Seoul’s pride and it’s a kind of “must-use transportation” while travelling in Seoul! You should try this green means, too!
