Hapjeong Station (Korean pronunciation: [hapt͈ɕʌŋ]) is a subterranean station of Seoul Subway Line 2 and Seoul Subway Line 6. The station is located just north of the Han River in Mapo-gu; the name of the subway station comes from its local name. The name of the area means clam well.[3]

The station is the southern end of Hongdae area, which is the mecca of urban arts and indie music culture of Seoul, it is closest to the historical site of Jeoldu-san, a place where over 10,000 Koreans of the Roman Catholic faith were beheaded in 1866 under the orders of Daewon-gun. Yanghwajin Foreigners' Cemetery and the Holt International Children's Services are also located near the station; the northern end of Yanghwa Bridge is near the gates of the station.
