Gupabal Station is a station on South Korea's Seoul Subway Line 3. Some trains finish at this station, although it is not the end of the line. The station opened on July 12, 1985.

The name comes from 'Pabal', a Joseon-era post station that was in the area. Nearby attractions include Jingwan Neighborhood Park, Gupabal Falls, Bukhansan National Park and Seooreung royal tombs.[1] Lotte Mall, Eunpyeong NewTown and Eunpyeong Hanok village are near the station.

Gupabal Station is part of the New Town Project in Seoul. This urban development plan aims to make parts of the city more equal. The plan puts Gupabal Station at the center of Eunpyeong New Town district.[2]
