    The Old Seoul Station (Hangul: 구서울역사; Hanja: 舊서울驛舍, literally meaning Old Seoul Station Building), originally named Keijo (Gyeongseong) Station and designed by Tsukamoto Yasushi of Tokyo Imperial University, was finished on November, 1925. This red brick building, designed in an eclectic style, features a Byzantine-style central dome and a centralized and symmetrical layout. The station was renamed "Seoul Station" in 1947. The station was expanded throughout the post-Korean War era, and a new terminal adjacent to the existing one was completed in 2004 to coincide with the introduction of KTX high-speed rail service.
