Isu Station is a subway station on the Seoul Subway Line 4 and Line 7 in the boundary Dongjak-gu Sadang-dong Seocho - gu Seoul, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Even though the Line 4 station is also called Chongshin University Station, it is a misnomer since the actual school of that name is a mile away into the western hills, and is much closer to other stations, especially Namseong Station.

Name[edit]

Before the construction of Seoul Subway Line 7, the station's name was officially Chongshin University Station. However, after the construction of Line 7, Seoul Metro changed the name of the station to Isu Station and Namseong Station became Namseong (Chongshin University) Station because the Namseong station is especially close by Chongshin University. The university sued Seoul Metro because the university wanted to express their school name at a transfer station to publicize their university. Although the university had lost their suit, the decision was reverted due to the university's violent protest. Therefore, Isu station currently holds two different names depending on the subway route, "Chongshin University (Isu) station" for Line 4 and "Isu station" for Line 7.
