Muhak was a Korean Buddhist monk that lived during the transition between the Goryeo and the Joseon kingdoms. Muhak was a Buddhist monk and an advisor to Yi Seong-gye who became King Taejo, the founder of the Joseon Dynasty. Muhak was his Buddhist name, it is thought that Muhak's reputation as a geomancer influenced Yi's decision to move the capital from Gaeseong to Hanyang. According to a historical account dating from 14th century, Yi Seong-gye asked Muhak to find a site for the new capital. After searching for a suitable place, the monk saw an old farmer passing by on his ox; the farmer pointed toward the northwest and said to him, wangsimni meaning'go ten more ri.' The startled Muhak went to the northwest as he was told and ended up at the southern foot of Mt. Bugak, where Gyeongbokgung now stands. Wangsimni Station on the Seoul Subway is named according to this record. A portrait of Muhak is enshirined in Josadong; this pavillon, located inside Silleuksa, is used to pay tribute to the three Buddhist priests Jigong, Naong Hyegeun and Muhak.
This shrine is now the oldest remaining building of the founded circa 580 temple. Gihwa 1376–1433 Portrayed by Ahn Gil-kang in the 2012 SBS TV series The Great Seer.

Trains run every 4~5 minutes during rush hours & every 7~8 minutes during off peak hours between Wangsimni and Jukjeon. Trains run except during rush hours.

First generation trains were introduced since the line's opening, second generation trains were introduced when the Bundang Line was extended from Suseo to Seolleung in 2003, third generation trains are being introduced as more extensions open.
