Seoul Subway Line 1 of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway links central Seoul, South Korea to Soyosan Station in the northeast, Incheon in the southwest, and Cheonan via Suwon in the south. This line covers a large part of the Seoul National Capital Area. The line first opened in 1974 between Seoul Station and Cheongnyangni Station, the only underground portion of the line (7.8 km). Commuter railway service was most recently extended to Cheonan in January 2005.

Frequent service is provided between Soyosan, Dongducheon, Uijeongbu, Cheongnyangni, Seoul, Yongsan, and Guro, where trains split between Incheon in the west and Byeongjeom and Cheonan in the south. Express trains operate from Yongsan and Seoul Stations to Dongincheon and Cheonan stations.

Most of the line's length travels along the Gyeongbu (Seoul-Cheonan), Gyeongin (Guro-Incheon), and Gyeongwon (Hoegi-Soyosan).

In June 2006, Jinwi and Jije Stations opened on the Gyeongbu Line, and Dangjeong Station (temporary name, may be opened as Hansei University Station) will be constructed between Gunpo and Uiwang Stations, also on the Gyeongbu Line. Part of the Gyeongwon Line from Dongducheon (formerly Dongan) to Uijeongbu was merged into Line 1 in December 2006.

Korea's first subway line was constructed with the technical and economic aid of Japan. However, some say that the total extent of Japanese aid was hidden from Koreans at that time.

Korail operates "Rapid Trains" for long distance commuter service on Line 1. There's Yongsan-Cheonan (A rapid), Yongsan-Dongincheon, Soyosan-Dongincheon, Seoul-Cheonan rapid (B rapid). Rapid train stations are marked below.
