Seoul subway's total length = 304km
But I honestly don't know how much of that is actually underground

Adding one to the other, you get more than 250 km underground rails below Paris. Though, I don't have any accurate source on this. By using Google Earth, I've been able to map clearly the underground parts of the Paris metro RER network. In red are pictured underground parts, in black are pictured the parts in open air (at grade, elevated or dug but uncovered).

That's a pretty impressive network

I don't know where did you see those pics but i can assure you that the portion of L10 between Lago and Casa de Campo is not underground. Before Batán you can even see the Parque de Atracciones from the train.
There are other parts, like a part in L5 (i don't know which one exactly) but Empalme station is overground as well as L9b.

Hope this helped!

Same here

The title of this thread is highly ambiguous and I can imagine at least four ways to understand it:

1. the longest undergound distance between two stations,
2. the subway line with the longest underground stretch,
3. the city with the longest subway system if only underground stretches count,
4. the city with the longest subway (also called "underground") system.

All these topics seem to be mixed up in this chaotic thread

Yeah, sorry about that. I debated about the wording of the title, and I figured that to have somethiing that perfectly described the thread would end up being a bit wordy, so I just decided to make mpst of the description inside.

But wow, I thought this thread was dead and burried. I had no idea it was active as recently as May! lol
