While on-site, I had the opportunity to test one of the English operators with a travel request. To my surprise and enjoyment, she was able to get me the information within a minute I got my answer.
The 120 Call Center bolsters a 97.6% positive customer service rating, which is amazing. One of the reasons for the high rating is because of the center's director, Lee, Se-jong (이세정). He's focused on making 120 the best it can be and to achieve that, he volunteers on the floor one day a week to better understand the needs of the operators and callers.
If you're living in Gyeonggi-do or traveling in the area, I honestly feel this service can benefit you. Simply pick up the phone and dial 120 within Gyeonggi Province. Outside the area, dial 031-120 to reach the call center.

On a more serious note, the speed at which these Korean trains blow through the stations is a little on the frightening side. This platform has no screen doors installed that would prevent someone from jumping (or falling) into the tracks. Seoul has done a great job of installing them on most stations, but outside Seoul, like here, it's optional. Personally, I'd like to see them installed universally because they provide such great safety measures.
