Gyeongju Station [경주역/慶州驛] (Closed/폐역)

Twenty-Five Twenty-One (2022); Reply 1988 (2015-16)

While competing for the 13th Asian Games held in Gyeongju in 1999 (a fictional date), Na Hee-do (Kim Tae-ri) takes the train from here searching of her fence in episode 6 of Twenty-Five Twenty-One/25 21 (스물다섯 스물하나) (tvN, 2022). When Baek Yi-jin (Nam Joo-hyuk) hears that Hee-do has left the competing grounds, he fetches her at this station so that she will make it in time for her next competition.

This appears as ‘Kyongju Station’ (a different stylization of Gyeongju) where everyone arrives on their school trip in episode 3 of Reply 1988 (응답하라 1988) (tvN, 2015-16).

Gyeongju Station/Gyeongjuyeok [경주역/慶州驛] was a KORAIL-operated railway station that served the Jungang Line and the Donghae Line, located in Gyeongju’s neighborhood Seongdong [Seongdong-dong/성동동]. It opened on November 1 1918 as a regular station, was rebuilt in 1936 by the Railway Bureau of the Japanese Government-General of Korea during the Japanese colonial rule, and closed on December 28 2021.

In 2013, the station was designated as a railway cultural property (철도 문화재) and railroad monument (철도기념물) — railroad relics that are worth preserving as railroad history — selected by the Korea Railroad Corporation. Since its closure, it has been preserved in its original state.
