You mean an express train on the Gyeonggi Line (Munsan - Yongsan) don't know but could be interesting a direct connection to the Jungang Line and make an Express Metropolitan service Munsan - Yongsan - Wangsinmi - Wonju.

I'm much interested in the Donghae Nambu Line. First line for commuter services in Busan area, but in a first moment only until Gijang or Ilgwang. (I think is more interesting a connection from Sasang through the Airport to Gimhae and the freight branch to the Busan New Port)

Donghae-Nambu Line upgrade in Busan (Udong and Jaesong stations) in June 2014. Photos taken by me before back to Spain

Why was under reconstruction? BTW is not the only to open soon:


철도마니아(Railway Mania)

And by the end of this year (Wikipedia says by the end of 2015), SMRT will add a new final station at the far end of Line 6. Sinnae Station, transfer with Gyeongchun Line.

It was closed because it was too close to nearby Haengshin station (600m).
With the newly-developed site, however, korail decided to build new station.
The newly built station is 900m away from Haengshin station.

The city of Changwon in Gyeongsannam-do province has changed its Urban Transportation plans. Initial plans called for a subway line, but Changwon has finally decided to turn to a Tram system to link it's 3 constituent districts of Masan, Changwon and Jinhae.

Daegu monorail (line 3)

Daegu monorail had some test runs last month.

Chinese media is speculating that Seoul may consider ordering Chinese rolling stock for their replacement program. 200 cars are planned to be ordered this month, and an additional 420 by 2018. The mayor of Seoul, on a recent visit to China, mentioned that the current situation of only one domestic builder (Hyundai Rotem), was not desirable. Perhaps this is merely a play to keep Rotem from being too complacent and not overcharge...

Maybe they will get trains built in China but I doubt they will buy Chinese cars. Definitely a negotiation ploy, like Ryanair contemplating buying COMAC jets

Aside from ROTEM Korean system already bought foreign cars from Bombadier.

Thank you for the Daegu Monorail pictures. I understand they plan to open in May of 2015. Does anyone know the exact date? Thank you.

I don't think it has been decided by Daegu yet. It was delayed from Dec 2014 to May 2015, but there isn't an exact date. All the websites I checked have only May 2015.

The mayor of Daejeon announced Dec. 4 that the planned metro line 2 will be a tram-based system with some street running. This will be the first streetcar system in S. Korea since the last streetcars were abolished in 1968 in Seoul and Busan. An initial test track of 5km length will be built by 2018, and revenue operations will begin in 2020. Apparently portions of the line which would conflict with road traffic excessively will run underground.

Don't know the reason to construct a tramway instead a full-metro

When I was in Daejeon, the Subway Line 1 has good capacity, maybe, can say it was too crowded.
