Short trains on the Seoul subway?

Is it just me, or do the trains running on Seoul's subway look more squat than most subway trains? The doors also look shorter. Are they? And what's that about, anyway, if they are?

not really,
I don't know what your definition is for short,
I live in Seoul now,
and I used to live in NYC and took subway everyday(L and 6) and the trains in NYC and Seoul are about the same height.

Depends. The L train is 480ft and the 6 train is 600ft.

I think he's talking about the structural height of the trains...

If you don't have to duck to get in, then there's no comparison to some carriages on the London Tube.
