"Hongwon Port Jeoneo (Gizzard Shad) & Crab Festival"

According to Sejong Sillok Jiriji ("King Sejong's Treatise on Geography"), Chungcheong-do, Gyeongsang-do and Hamgyeong-do are the prominent fishery for gizzard shad. This fish species was given its name, jeoneo, because it is so delicious that people don't care about how much money they spend to purchase it. It is caught in large volumes during the spawning period, when they become plump and their bones become soft, and this is when the festival is held.
