Civil Service on the Go!

I went to Myeongdong on New Year’s Eve — I’ve been going to that shopping heaven almost everyday since I started Kpopmall! On my way back, I took the bus to Jonggak and transferred to subway line 1 (blue). I boarded the second car so I had to walk inside to get to the last car (tenth), which is nearest our exit in Dongmyo station. I got stuck inside car number 5 and I thought I was in the twilight zone!
The fifth car was packed full of people that I couldn’t even take a decent picture. The car is called 경기도청 이동민원실 (Gyeonggido’s Moving Civil Service) and it is specially designed with a refrigerated display case, automated machine for civil records, a mini-library, counseling booths, cellphone charging device and of course, brochures!

Honey, baked goodies and sandwiches on sale!

The lady manning the food section started giving out candies to passengers when a woman bought her goodies.

cellphone chargers plus

Low cellphone battery? No problemo! You could even try the two Galaxy Tabs on display. What? No iphone?!
free wifi

I couldn’t get nicer pictures. Hopefully, I could get to ride this train again. In case you visit Seoul and use subway line 1, why not ride the fifth car and if you’re lucky you could get to ride this one ;p


  1. is it just new ate Betchay? ako din, sa haba ng byahe ko sa line 1, laging yung uupuan ko lang hinahanap ko, tapos magbabasa or tulog… or chat if may kasama, hehe.. it would have been a good experience…

  2. hays…sana sana maraming line dito sa pinas para hindi na mahirap ang bumiyahe…It was very convenient for me to visit some spots in Seoul when I visited Korea last time using subway station.
