|Hwangnyonggang River runs from Jangseong to Imgok, through Gwangsan, Yongjinsan, Eodeungsan mountains, and then past Songjeong and into Naju. Hwangnyong Maeul Village is a natural stronghold. It is estimated that the myth that a dragon lived in Bonghwangyeon Pond was associated with a general who bathed in deep waters in Hwangnyonggang River. Thus, the name of Hwangnyonggang must have come from Hwangnyong Maeul Village, and the name of the village from hwangnyong (yellow dragon), or the general who was in charge of defending the region. The name Bonghwangyeon Pond is also thought to be associated with the general, so the name of the river is interpreted through its association with Bonghwangyeon Pond.|
