Jamsil Station is an underground station on the Seoul Subway Line 2 and Line 8. Lotte World is continuous with the Line 2 station; the station is also called Songpa-gu Office Station (송파구청역), due to the proximity of the office building (right outside Exit 10 of the Line 8 station).[1]

The Line 2 station is located in Jamsil-dong and the Line 8 station in Sincheon-dong, both neighborhoods being within Songpa-gu, Seoul.
