History[edit]

Yeongdeungpo Station opened on September 18, 1899, as a stop on the Gyeongin Line. On April 1, 1936, trains on the Gyeongbu Line began calling here. The station's name was changed to "Namgyeongseong" (South Gyeongseong, Gyeongseong being the then name of Seoul), but it reverted to its current name on April 1, 1943, and on January 1, 1949, the station was given "Level 5" in its classification of importance. The station building was destroyed on June 30, 1950, five days after the beginning of the Korean War, and a new building was not completed until January 12, 1965. On February 1, 1968, the station was deemed to be of "Level 4" importance. Trains on the Seoul Subway began running through Yeongdeungpo on August 15, 1974. The station stopped handling freight on May 1, 2006.[1]
