The Honam Line (KTX) is the high-speed railway between Seoul and Mokpo in South Korea. There is also a spur line to Gwangju. From West Daejeon south, however, trains use the normal Honam Line, so "high speed" travel is only reached between Gwangmyeong and West Daejeon. There are plans to build a separate high speed rail line from Daejeon to Mokpo via Gwangju.


The following is a list of the stations on the high-speed Honam Line from north to south.

Note that only trains on the Gyeongbu Line continue to Seoul Station, while services on the Honam Line terminate at Yongsan.
