Soyosan Station is a ground-level metro station on Line 1 of the Seoul Subway in Sangbongam Dong, Dongducheon, South Korea. It is named after the nearby Soyosan (587m),[3] a mountain beside the U.S. Army base Camp Casey. It is on this mountain, at the Jajae'am Hermitage, that the Buddhist Saint Wonhyo is said to have reached enlightenment.[4] Travel time between Soyosan station and Seoul Station via Seoul Subway Line 1 is approximately 78 minutes.

History[edit]

The station opened for business on January 11, 1976[5] and the station building was completed on September 21, 1982. This building was closed twenty-four years later, on May 7, 2006 and a temporary building erected in its place. Meanwhile, Line 1 of the Seoul Subway was being extended north through the city of Dongducheon, and Soyosan became its northern terminus, with a new station building completed, on December 15, 2006.[6]
