Starting Friday morning Seoul residents will be able to ride on the new subway line number nine. It spans 25 km, linking Gimpo Airport Station, west of Seoul, and Shin-nonhyeon Station in Gangnam-gu, south of the Han River.
It's expected to take only half an hour to travel the distance between the two on express trains. The opening was originally set for late May but was postponed due to problems occurring in test operations of the new transfer fare system.
