KNR Adds PC Rooms to TrainsThe proliferation of Internet use and computer rooms have permeated every sector of Korean society. The latest evidence of the ubiquity of computer use and Korean's addiction to the Internet came yesterday when the Korean National Railroad announced that it had begun providing PC room service inside passenger trains.
Passenger trains offering the service will be equipped with 20 computers per car and the price will be set at 2500 won, or $ 2.30 for an hour of use.
Trains equipped with the PC room will run between Seoul Station in downtown Seoul and Pusan and Mokpo stations. Trains will depart from Pusan and Mokpo stations at 6:15 pm and 5:20 pm, respectively toward Seoul.
Meanwhile, trains with passenger cars equipped with baduk (go) game parlors will run bi-monthly on the line between Kyongbu and Honam.
