Kujang County is a kun, or county, in southeastern North Pyongan Province, North Korea. It was created in 1952 from part of Nyongbyon County, as part of a nationwide reorganization of local government. It borders Nyongbyon on the west, Hyangsan and Unsan on the north, Nyongwon on the east, and Kaechon and Tokchon cities to the south.
The Myohyang Mountains stretch across the eastern part of Kujang. The highest point is Kalbong (칼봉, 1530 m) in the north. The Chongchon River flows through the center of the county, and the Kuryong River flows along its western flank. The average annual temperature is 8.4 °C, with a January mean of -10.4 °C and an August mean of 24.2 °C. The average annual rainfall is 1300 mm, making for a comparatively cool and wet climate. Due to the mountainous terrain, only 17% of the county's land is cultivated, while 74% is occupied by forestland.
Zinc, coal, and mica are mined in the district. Factories produce cement and rail cars. The Manp'o, P'yŏngdŏk and Ch'ŏngnyŏn P'arwŏn railroad lines intersect in Kujang, along with various spur lines serving the county's mines. There is also a road grid.
