Photo Of The Day: An Old Seoul Train
If you're looking to have your photo taken with a train in Seoul, it would not be a good idea posing next to a running subway train. Most subway station have installed safety doors on their platforms, which are there to serve a purpose: to ensure everyone's safety. But there are still stations which don't have these safety doors, and I don't exactly recommend you posing there. It's just not safe.
So, instead of risking your life posing with those moving trains, I recommend that you pose with this non-moving, old Seoul train standing in front of the National Museum of Modern History near the Gwanghwamun area. The National Museum of Modern History is accessible from Exit 7 of the Gwanghwamun Station, or Exit 4 of the Seodaemun Station. From either of these exits, it's a hundred meters or so.
Once you find it, you can gamely pose in front of this train and join the two statues, one of which is a Korean lady vendor selling snacks to the passengers of the train.
So, before this old Seoul train moved, and before she ran out of snacks to sell, they both provided me the photo of the day.
