Migeum Station (미금역) is a subway station located in Geumgok-dong. It is between Jeongja Station and Ori Station on the Bundang Line.

Though small compared its neighbors throughout Bundang and Seongnam, Migeum has a variety of boutiques, Korean and Western restaurants, hofs, singing rooms, Korean-style barbecues, hagwons and a 2001 Outlet department store. Tancheon stream is also in the vicinity.

There is an ongoing debate between Seongnam city and Suwon city regarding whether Migeum should be included in the Phase 2 extension of Sin Bundang Line. Supporters argue that the distance between Jeongja Station and SB01, an originally planned station to follow Jeongja, is unusually long at 3.76km. They also argue that the inclusion of Migeum will alleviate traffic in the area. Meanwhile, opposition in Suwon claims that the inclusion will delay travel time to Gwanggyo, a planned area of Suwon in construction. Phase 2 of Sin Bundang Line is expected to open in 2016.[1]
