Origin of the Name "Yeongdo"
The former name of Yeong-do (Yeong Island) was Jeolyeong-do (Jeolyeong Island).
Mythologically, horses that could run a thousand miles, so-called "Chollima", lived on this island. Because the horses living on this island could run so fast that their shadows could not follow them, this island was called, "Jeolyeong-do".
After the South Korea government arranged their administrative divisions' names, the name of the island was changed to, "Yeongdo-gu. 
Yeongdo-gu is divided into 22 legal dong, which altogether comprise 11 administrative dong, as follows:
|Legal dong||Administrative dong|
|Yeongseon-dong 1-ga||Yeongseon 1-dong|
|Yeongseon-dong 3-ga||Yeongseon 2-dong|
|Bongnae-dong 1-ga||Bongnae 1-dong|
|Bongnae-dong 4-ga||Bongnae 2-dong|
