Omokgyo Station is a station in the west of Seoul on Seoul Subway Line 5. It is considered the principal station of the affluent Mok-dong area, and the Hyperion Towers are right outside Exit 2. Mokdong Baseball Stadium, home of the Korea Baseball Organization's Nexen Heroes, is a short walk from Exit 4.

It is one of two stations close to the Seoul Immigration Office,[1] which is located 650 metres (2,130 ft) from Exit 7 and which many South Korean expatriates visit at least once during their stay in South Korea.[citation needed]
