A Map for Non-Korean Bundang Residents

I started this map in early 2013. Many in the Bundang and Yongin area have contributed to it. It’s publicly editable so please feel free to add locations.

It’s also not limited to Bundang, so if you know good locations anywhere in Korea, please add them.

Bundang Line Opens Stops in Yongin

Three new stops opened on the Bundang Line this week recently, part of a plan to eventually connect to Line 1 in Suwon.

The new(ish) stops are Guseong, Singal and Giheung, opening up Yongin as a convenient new area for Bundang residents to work and play.

The Bundang Line is in yellow on the pictured map.

On a related note, Popular Gusts dug up a 1988 article about Seoul’s plans for the metro. Notice that 24 years ago, Seongnam was very peripheral.

Thanks to Our Readers! Here’s the 맙소사! Year in Review

Thanks to our readers, 2011 was a huge success for us!

Extra special thanks to Jen, who’s been a content machine.

Check out the link below and see a summary for the year.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Wish I knew earlier — rides were free today. This brought out families and couples to take a ride on trains with no drivers. The overall experience was similar to Disney’s monorail, smooth and quiet.

One important thing to note is that the exit numbers at Gangnam have been changed.

Sin Bundang Line Opens Today

After a few last-minute delays, Sin Bundang express subway line opened today, connecting Jeongja to Gangnam in 16 minutes. Anyone worried that Seoul was too far away from Bundang will now have a speedy option to complement the extensive bus coverage already available to Bundang residents.

More of Pangyo’s Trippy New Metro Station

Here are some more pictures from inside Pangyo’s new nightclub metro station.  Check the end of the post for the new line’s operating times.

Inside Pangyo Station

Who brought the glowsticks?

Too bad those harsh florescent lights will really kill your buzz.

Inside Pangyo Station

You gotta admit, it looks pretty cool.

Along with the new views, I’ve also learned that the line will run on the same daily hours as the rest of the Seoul Metro, 6 am. to 12:30 am.

As for my last Sin Bundang post, I’m still trying to find out about a new opening date.
