Jegi-dong Station is station #125 on Line 1 of the Seoul Subway network.

This station is very close to the site of the former Seongdong Station, the original western terminus of the Gyeongchun Line from 1939 to 1971. Only a moments walk from the station is Gyeongdong Market, a large, well known medicinal market, and the Seoul Yangnyeongsi Herb Medicine Museum,[3] a free museum dedicated to educating visitors about traditional Korean medicine.
