Jincheon County (Jincheon-gun) is a county in Chungcheongbuk-do (North Chungcheong) Province, South Korea.

Location[edit]

Jincheon belongs to the middle of Chungcheongbuk-do. It borders several cities of its province but also meets Gyeonggi-do. The southwestern part of this area is mountainous.

Industry[edit]

Farming has quickly moved from the 2nd most successful industry to the major contribution of this region. Hyundai Autonet moved its former factories into Jincheon and got to operate from February 2008.[1]

CJ also revealed its plan to construct a processing complex.

Festival[edit]

Jincheon holds a World Taekwondo Hwarang festival every year. The festival becomes an opportunity for all fans of Taegwondo to get together in its motherlands.

The festival has more meaning as experience, since it not only provides a splendid tour opportunity in Korea, but participants also experience the spirit of Korean martial arts.[2]
