Migeum (Seoul National University Bundang Hospital) Station is a subway station located in Geumgok-dong. It is between Jeongja Station and Ori Station on the Bundang Line. It will become a transfer station to the Shinbundang Line in 2017.[needs update]
There was a debate between Seongnam City and Suwon City regarding whether Migeum should be included in the Phase 2 extension of Shinbundang Line. Supporters argued that the distance between Jeongja Station and SB01, an originally planned station to follow Jeongja, would be unusually long at 3.76 km. They also argued that the inclusion of Migeum will alleviate traffic in the area. Meanwhile,the Suwon opposition claims that the inclusion would delay travel time to Gwanggyo, a planned area of Suwon in construction.
One of the largest commercial districts in Bundang, Migeum has a variety of boutiques, Korean and Western restaurants, chicken-and-beer restaurants, karaoke places, Korean-style barbecues, hagwons and a 2001 Outlet department store. Tancheon stream is close by.
