Under the third mayor of Gimpo City, Kim Dongsik (김동식), the line was going to be an extension of Line 5. This idea was rejected by Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corporation (now Seoul Metro) as they wanted to build a subway yard in the town of Yangchon-eup.
Construction is expected to cost 1.6503 trillion won with 1.2 trillion from Korea Land and Housing Corporation. Two car vehicles will operate at intervals of three minutes during peak hours with a maximum occupancy of 122 people per car. The line will use rolling stock by Hyundai Rotem. Travel time from one end to the other will be an estimated 30 minutes and transfers are available at Gimpo Airport Station. In 2012, planners expected 88,257 passengers during the first year of operation (then 2018), 91,501 in 2021, and 92,561 in 2026 with an operating deficit of roughly 10 billion won.
