Knitting together the country's major cities is Korea's high speed railways.
And as over 100-thousand riders enjoy trips on the smoothly gliding bullet trains each day the high speed rail industry has grown into something more than just a mode of transportation here.
Back in 2004 Korea first imported the technology from France.
Six years have passed since then and now Korea is poised to export its homegrown high speed railway technology abroad.
Although competition in exporting rail technology is fierce among countries like China and Japan Korea's chances of successfully exporting its know-how are quite high considering that Korea's technology is competitive in price.
Back in September California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger visited Korea to discuss with President Lee Myung-bak ways to drum up a possible collaboration on an express train linking San Francisco and Los Angeles a project worth 42 billion US dollars.
[Interview : ] "I'm very impressed with the efficiency of the high speed rail and the kind of speed it travels‚ how quietly it travels. We look forward to having South Korea being part of the bidding process."
And the domestic expansion of the KTX seems to be far from over.
In September‚ a new plan was unveiled by the government to create new lines and upgrade train speeds.
And such is expected to help connect the entire country so that most of the Korean population can have access to high-speed rail while making 95 percent of the country accessible within just two hours.
A new line connecting Seoul to Busan was recently established shaving the travel time between the two cities from 2 hours and 45 minutes to 2 hours 18 minutes.
[Reporter : Lee Ji-yoon‚ email@example.com] "Korea will continue to seek ways in advancing its high speed rail industry with the hopes of exporting its know-how to other countries in the near future.
