Aeogae is a subway station in Mapo-gu, which is located in Seoul, South Korea. It is served by Seoul Subway Line 5.

"Aeogae" is one of a very few station names in the Seoul subway system which is not ultimately derived from Chinese. The name is derived from a native Korean designation meaning "small ridge." This is the literal translation of the neighborhood called Ahyeon-dong, in which this station is located.
