Introduction
Located off the southern coast of the Korean peninsula, Cheongsando Island is part of the Dadohae National Park. As such, traces of battles against outside forces remain on the island, where approximately 2,600 people currently reside in pursuit of "happiness of slow life." Moreover, Cheongsando Island features numerous tourist attractions including stone artifacts, walking trails, and filming locations of Korean movie "Seopyeonje" and Korean TV drama series "Waltz of Spring."

Island History
Previously known as Seonsan, Seonwon, and Geumsongji, Cheongsando Island, which literally means "Blue Mountain Island" as given its name in 1483 for its green mountains and blue sea. In 1681, a navy camp was set up on the island to fight off a series of outside invasions. The island then became a military hub of the southern coastal region, which, on December 23, 1981, was designated as Dodohae National Park.
