A friend of mine at my hostel here in Seoul needs to get to Gimpo Airport in the morning and is asking what time the subway system commences operation.

I've looked at the Wikitravel page for Seoul and the Wikipedia page for the Seoul Metro, but this information is proving a little difficult to find.

This is what it says in the official Seoul government tourist site:

The subway operation hours are from 5:30 to approximately 24:00.

Apparently, the subway system is run by three different companies but I don't think this has any influence on the opening hours but just on the design of certain stations.
