Those who purchase one of the passes can buy a Railway Pass designed to give unlimited use of KTX bullet trains during a given period or a 20-50 percent discount of KTX tickets on given days. It costs 92,700 won for a three-day pass and 123,600 won for a five-day pass.
The passes will be available through the online ticketing agency Ticketlink (www.ticketlink.co.kr).
