깊은 사고

In Seoul, I can easily hop onto the metro and escape to almost anywhere in Gyeonggi Province. Remote towns where passengers are few and far between are also served by metro.

In Singapore, you cannot justify for a MRT station if the area is not built up. Built up area is not a loose term, in fact, there is a specific definition for it. If our government's way of reasoning is applied in Korea, many metro stations in Gyeonggi Province would not have existed in the first place.

The real issue is about whether decent profit margin or public convenience and quality of life is of greater importance. Depending on your value system, both arguments hold.
