It's great to see Hyundai Rotem developing this. Even if it was designed with export in mind, it could be successful domestically as well. Korean cities tend to be very dense, so networks with a few well-chosen corridors could work in quite a few places. Jeonju, Ulsan, and Suwon (to name just a few) ought to jump on this.

Not surprising, given that an alternative fleet of diesel buses requires petroleum bought with hard currency (often yen funneled by North Korean pachinko parlor owners living in Japan). DPRK is so poor that it regularly buys tons of used/discarded bicycles from Japan just to burn the rubber tires as fuel for power generation.

Seems that the trains used in Pyongyang metro are mostly from the former East Germany and USSR.

Suin Line

This looks to be a map of the Suin Line. Seems like it goes from the end of Seoul Line 4 to at Oido Station to Songdo Station and intersects Incheon Line 1 at Woninjae Station along the way

Hello Korean fellows!

Here in Sao Paulo we have been having this weird problem with the brand new Hyundai Rotem driverless trainsets purchased for Line 4, namely water leakage from the roof (even though the line is fully underground, except depot):



These trains are little over 2 years old. They say it's the air-conditioning. Has this ever happened in other Hyundai Rotem trains?
