Out for a spin
A bullet train passes Jeongeup in North Jeolla on Thursday during a test-drive on the Honam High Speed Railway. Construction on the 182-kilometer (113-mile) KTX railway, which will enable passengers to go from Seoul to Gwangju, South Jeolla, in 93 minutes, is scheduled to finish in March. Trains using this railway, called the KTX2, will have 410 seats with more space in between them. Installed on each seat will be 220V electric plugs.
