Kaep'ung County is a county in North Hwanghae province, North Korea. Formerly part of the Kaesong urban area, the county was merged with North Hwanghae when Kaesong was demoted in 2003. The area is the site of the royal tombs of kings Kongmin and Wanggon.

Administrative Divisions[edit]

The county is divided into one town (ŭp) and 18 'ri' (villages).


Kaep'ung is served by Kaep'ung and Ryohyŏn stations of the Korean State Railway. These are both on the P'yŏngbu line.
