Jungangno Station is a station of Daegu Metro Line 1 in Jung-gu, Daegu, South Korea. With its prime location at the heart of Daegu and its proximity to a major shopping district, it is the second-busiest station in the Daegu Metro,[1] after Banwoldang Station, which is the only transfer point between the Line 1 and Line 2. Many facilities, including a branch of Kyobo Book Centre, movie theaters, and several large banks are in the vicinity.

This station served as the terminus point for Line 1 from November 26, 1997, to May 2, 1998. Despite its large foot traffic, the platforms for this station are narrower than other Line 1 stations.[2] It is also connected to the Daehyun PriMall, an underground shopping center, giving it a much larger than normal access area.

In 2003, an arsonist set fire to a train stopped at Jungangno Station. The fire killed at least 198 people.[3][4]
