Daegok Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 3 and the Gyeongui Line. It is located in the city of Goyang, close to Ilsan.[2] It is mainly used as a transfer station between the two lines rather than as an actual enter-and-exit stop, as the station is located in the midst of farmland with very little local resident demand.

It will host a third line for transfer in the future, as the Sosa–Daegok Line will be built and brought northward around 2021. This will allow for much faster, direct subway travel between Ilsan, Gimpo Airport, Bucheon, Siheung, and Ansan.
