Daegok Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 3 and Gyeongui Line. It is located in the city of Goyang, close to Ilsan. It is mainly used as a transfer station between the two lines rather than as an actual enter-and-exit stop, as the station is located in the midst of farmland with very little local resident demand.

It will host a third line for transfer in the future, as the Daegok-Sosa-Wonsi Line will be built and brought northward around 2015. This will allow for much faster, direct subway travel between Ilsan, Gimpo Airport, Bucheon, Siheung, and Ansan.
