Yeongdong (Korean pronunciation: [jʌŋ.doŋ]; literally "east of the passes") is the name of the region coinciding with eastern Gangwon Province in South Korea and eastern Kangwŏn Province in North Korea.
|North Korean name|
Although Yeongseo describes the western half of the two provinces and Gwandong describes both halves together, "Yeongdong" is used much more frequently in South Korea than either of the other two names, and may be taken loosely to refer to the entire region.
