Bokjeong Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 8 and Bundang Line. This station has one of the most sophisticated and convenient transfer systems in the Seoul Subway in which the Bundang Line platform is directly beneath the Line 8 platform. Passengers can transfer between the lines simply by taking one flight of stairs/escalators. However, since the station is situated directly below a major highway interchange with no nearby residential or industrial area, the vicinity of the station has no significant source of passengers, so this station is used mainly as a transfer point.

The only aboveground section of Line 8 lies between here and Sanseong Station, although both stations are situated underground.

The station is within walking distance of Seoul International School in the city of Seongnam; this station is on the border between Seoul and Seongnam.
