Suicide is one of the serious problems in korea. But suicide in subway is very small portion of total suicide.(Of course it doesn't mean you don't need to prevent suicide in subway.)

According to government source :

Total Suicide

YEAR PERSON (per 100,000 people)
2000 6,460 (14.6)
2001 6,933 (15.5)
2002 8,631 (19.1)
2003 10,932 (24)
2004 11,523 (25.2)
2005 12,047 (26.1)
2006 10,688 (23)
2007 12,174 (24.8)

Accidents by subway

YEAR/Total/by careless/by suicide try
2004 55 7 48
2005 69 9 60
2006 58 8 50
2007 63 6 57
2008 27 3 24
* 2008 = January to August

Jan, 2004 to August, 2008 : Total 272, dead 170 wounded 102

Well, that's pretty many ppl!
I would have never thought about 50-60 persons dying on metro tracks every year!
I thought it's like 3 maybe 5 in a year.

Will the prevention method be the "full screen doors" or only the "half" as in some metro systems??

I don't know exactly but, as far as I know, most of screen doors in korea are full screen door type, so I think it will be the same.

(About some statistics I got wrong figures, more precisely about titiles. It was accidents in subways, not death in subways. I edited it.)

Yes, Metro 9 will be operated by Veolia(80%) and Rotem(20%) consortium for 10 years.

Veolia Transport has won a 10-year contract to operate Seoul subway system's line 9, to be inaugurated in 2009.

The contract has been signed between the franchisee, SML9* (Seoul Metro Line 9), to which the City of Seoul has awarded the contract to build and operate this new line, and Southlink 9 Company Limited, an operating company 80%-held by Veolia Transport Korea and 20% by Korea's ROTEM group, a subsidiary of HYUNDAI Motors. Veolia Transport will recruit and train 550 people under this contract. The cumulative revenue for Veolia Transport is expected at approximately €507 million.

The 25-km Line 9, now under construction, will cross Seoul, linking the Gangnam district southeast of the city to Kimpo Airport in the west. It will have 25 stations and is scheduled to carry 760,000 passengers daily by 2013.

K-AGT

Korea became the fourth nation to develop AGT system, a driverless, rubber-tire-wheeled train, when KRRI succeeded in the development after working from 1999 to 2005 in cooperation with around 50 industrial, academic, and research entities, under the goal of developing a Korean light rail transit which is reliable, safe, and ecomnomical. THe transit has completed trial run of 100,000 km on the comprehensive trial track in the city of Gyong-san, Gyeong-bu, beginning in 2004 and ending in November 2008.
The light rail trainsit developed by KRRI has the maximum speed of 70km/h, and each car can carry an average of 57, and the maximum of 100 people. It is a large composite system composded of DC 750V side electric supply system, driverless signal control system, and light-structure track construction. The completed system has low operation/maintenance cost, and the constructio of the tracks cost USD 23-39 million which is relatively cheap, considering that it is 40-50% of the cost of the tracks for the subway system, which is USD55-78 million.
It has been decided that the K-AGT will enter the commercial track with the route from Minam to Anpyeng on the Line 3 of Busan Subway(Bansong Line).

Ride on new subway line to cost 900 won

Subway line No. 9, slated to launch in late May, will tentatively charge the standard 900 won ($0.65) for a ride despite opposition from the operating company, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said.

The 25.5-kilometer (15.8-mile) line will link Nonhyeon in southern Seoul and Gimpo in western Seoul, where Gimpo Airport is located. The route will also pass through Dangsan, Yeouido, Noryangjin, Dongjak and Gangnam Express Bus Terminal. An express train that takes 30 minutes to get from southern Seoul to Gimpo Airport will also be running. Under Seoul’s current public transportation fee system, a combined traveling distance of 10 kilometers by bus and subway costs 900 won. An additional fee of 100 won is added on for every extra 5 kilometers.

However, Metro 9, the private operator of the subway line, has proposed a basic fee of 1,582 won, citing inflation and a smaller number of passengers compared with other lines.

Gwangju Subway




Daejeon and Gwangju subway trains look similar because both are based on korean standard middle-weight EMU.
