The Line 3 part of Oksu Station is one of four stations on Line 3 not underground (The others are Jichuk, Wondang, and Daegok). The Yongsan-Deokso Line part was recently renovated with a glass-covered top which lets in sunlight. Because of its beautiful view of the Han River, it is often seen in movies and advertisements. The manhwa webtoon Oksu Station Ghost is set at the Line 3 platforms.
