Whew! I can’t believe how many hours it takes to do the research and execute these maps. When I lived in the states, I would get so lost on highways that I’d stop driving and let someone else take me but now I can’t seem to get enough of maps and understanding where I live.
So Anjeong-ri, Songwha-ri and Gaeksa-ri are villages?
Below, I’ve created maps for the three popular villages(-ri) right outside of Humphreys. My goal is for everyone to better understand where they live so that they can easily explain locations to their friends, Korean or English. Understanding the municipality hierarchy in Korea is not easy, I tried to study it in Language Exchange and my Korean friends broke my brain trying to explain to me how the designations at the end of places refer to the population size. Suffice it to say, the words that are tagged at the end of a name often indicates the number of people living there. Paengseong used to be Paengseong-myeon until it was promoted to -eup in 1979.
Do you know which villages in Paengseong these popular locations are in?
Korea Mart aka Orange Mart – Gaeksa-ri
Lotteria – Gaeksa-ri
Jump Nori – Gaeksa-ri
Topresso – Songwha-ri
Pyeongtaek International Exchange Foundation – Songwha-ri
Art Camp – Anjeong-ri
Brownstone Apts – Anjeong-ri
3/8 Market St – Anjeong-ri
Riverside Apartments – Wonjeong-ri
Rex Village – Daesa-ri
That being said, these villages are tiny and their borders can be hard to discern so use villages to get a general understanding of where something is located.
How did you get this information, Sig?
I made these maps using Naver. Anyone can find the outline for villages, towns and cities for Korea, it’s super easy. Go to Naver Maps, and paste the hangul for the place you are looking for and you will get an outline. Go ahead, try it now. Copy and Paste this into the Naver Map Search Bar to see the outline for Paengseong.
