Origin of the name[edit]

Jichuk Station is named after the administrative area (dong) that it is located in. The area used to belong to two villages in the Joseon period. Jijeong-ri produced paper, while Chuk-ri was famous for its bush clovers. When the area became united under Goyang-gun, it was named using the first syllables of the two villages.[3]
