Goseong (Goseong-gun) is a county in Gangwon Province, South Korea.

Prior to the 1953 Armistice which ceased the Korean War, Goseong (which is located north of the 38th parallel) was a part of North Korea.[1] Kaesong, which is south of the 38th parallel and a part of South Korea before 1953, became part of the North after the Armistice.[2]
