“The Seoul Metropolitan Subway is an integrated urban rail transit system consisting of 19 rapid transit, light metro, commuter rail and people mover lines. The first line, Line 1, started construction in 1971 and opened in 1974, with through-operation to Korail suburban railways. Today, it is one of the largest and most efficient metro systems in the world, with 331.5 km (206.0 mi) of track on lines 1–9 alone. It has wireless and internet service on all trains” (according to Wikipedia).
