Noryangjin Station (노량진역) is a train station in central Seoul, South Korea. The station is located in the Noryangjin-dong (neighborhood) of Dongjak-gu (ward) and is also a stop on Seoul Subway Line 1 and Seoul Subway Line 9. This stop is a popular destination for those seeking to eat raw fish, and other assorted seafood, as a large, covered sea food market is located next to the station, accessible by foot bridge. The Line 1 station is also notable in that it has only one exit, a rarity when compared to most other stations connected to the Seoul rail system.

Line 1 and Line 9 currently do not offer a direct transfer, but the exits for the two stations are only about 25 meters apart, with clear signs pointing to each other, and include a free transfer if you are using an electronic card. Currently a tunnel is under construction with an budget of 18.3 billion won [2] and an expected opening date of September 25, 2014.
