the computation for subway fares are:

A color-coded system, as well as a numerical system are used for routing. All station entrances, platforms and destinations are color-coded and clearly marked in English. Large subway maps are posted at each station and in each subway car. Although many foreign residents refer to each line by color (i.e. orange line or blue line), locals go by the numbers (orange = line 3, while blue may be line 3 or line 1). Each station has a number code (Seoul Station is 426 meaning line 4 stop 26).
You can buy a magnetized yellow ticket at a vending machine or ticket window at any subway stop. Validate the ticket by inserting it and picking it up as you go through the turnstile; make sure you keep it unbent or uncrumpled for use at the destination turnstile that will retain one-way tickets. Stand in line for boarding and board quickly. Stops are announced in Korean and English; markings on the subway map inside each car generally indicate which side the doors open for exiting at each station. In general, subway trains operate at intervals of two and a half to three minutes during the morning and evening rush hours and at intervals of four to six minutes during the non-rush hours. Depending on the line, trains begin running between 5:40 and 6:00 to stop between 22:30 and 23:00.
