I booked the KTX first class from Busan to Seoul. You go to the platform 15-20 mins before departure. Basically no security checks whatsoever. When you book online, the tickets are immediately issued and you would have to print out a physical copy and save...More

I use the KTX for business trips. The trains are punctual. Once in the train, the car seats are comfortable. Would be great if they had charging stations. Otherwise, the KTX is a great comfortable ride when traveling in Korea city to city.

Very convenient. But the seats are a little too small for an adult. In my opinion maybe they can make the seats larger about 50%. I am an Asian still think it is too small. 非常便利。 但是唯有椅子似乎超嫌狹小。 我個人認為或許他們可以把椅子加大50%左右。 我身為一個亞洲人都嫌椅子有點小了。
