Dogok Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 3 and Bundang Line. This station serves one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Korea; the Samsung Tower Palace complex, which includes the tallest building in South Korea, has a direct passageway link with the station. Another set of high-wealth residential apartments - the Dongbu Centreville - is also linked by an underground passageway. Other nearby high-wealth apartments include Dogok Rexle complex and Daechi I-Park.

Due to pipes running underneath the 4-way road intersection at which this station is located, it is built deep underground. For example, the Bundang Line platform is 6 floors below ground level.
