    [Anchor] Time now for our ‘Life & Info’ segment where you focus on information useful for your everyday life. All the trains on Seoul Subway Line 9 have been lengthened to six car trains from today as the line aims to shed its rather infamous title as ‘the most crowded line’ in the whole of South-Korean capital.
    Starting from the end of November, the Seoul Metropolitan Government says it also plans to increase the 37 trains currently running on a typical workday to 40, so an extra 3 trains a day.
    Subway Line 9 is especially crowded as you can see during morning and evening rush hours since the trains, before today anyway, are only four cars-long and because it’s on what is considered a golden route that stops at major transit stations at a much faster speed than other lines.
