I was extremely worried about navigating around Seoul being a non Korean speaking tourist. Every station has signs in both Korean and English. There is no standardized spelling for some stations in English so give a little leeway for phonetic spelling.

Every metro line has a different color and name, and if you have any doubts, you can always ask somebody. I ask the guy sitting in the small shop. Another thing about the metro is that you'll save a lot off time and money. JUST DO IT

This is the most convenient subway system in the world--with around 10 lines crisscrossing the city and connecting it to suburbs. The bathrooms in any station are clean and well maintained. The signs were very clear everywhere including inside the train (letting you know which station you're approaching and which side you're getting off). The announcement was done in four... More

Easy to work out as the signs are also in English. Clear maps with the main attractions marked with arrows so you can find your way out of the underground etc. Very clean trains and polite travellers too.

The Seoul Metro is the largest and most efficient I have ever seen. The Metro is definitely something any visitor to Seoul should explore. Some if the Metro stations are filled with shops and vendors set-up in long, subterranean hallways that seem to go on for miles. A must see.

stations are everywhere in a short range of walking. convenient and fast, spacious, clean, and very reliable in schedule. walking distance inside the station is still convenient, not too far to change line. Get the T Money card, really reduced travel time compared to buy 1 way ticket.
