Other information

Heukseok(Chung-Ang University) Station is a train station of Seoul Subway Line 9, in Dongjak District, Seoul, South Korea.

Argument about Station name

When deciding station name of Line 9, Chung-Ang Univeristy, located near Heukseok Station, suggested the station name as "Chung-Ang University Station"(중앙대역) or "Chung-Ang University·Heukseok Station"(중앙대흑석역), but station name is decided as "Heukseok Station".

Later, Seoul Government changed that decision, and add "Chung-Ang University" in station name. So, final station name is decided as "Heukseok (Chung-Ang University)" (흑석(중앙대입구)).
