Hyeonpung-eup

During the Silla Period, this region was called Churyanghwa-hyeon or Samryanghwa-hyeon. Its name was changed to Hyeonhyo-hyeon (Hawang-gun) in the Unified Silla Period. It was also called Posan-hyeon during the reign of Goryeo’s King Euijong and renamed Hyeonpung-hyeon Milseong (present-day Miryang)-gun during the reign of King Hyeonjong. During the Joseon Period, a local administrator (Hyeongam) controlled 15 myeon in the area. With the reshuffle of administrative units in 1914, it became Hyeonpung-myeon (Dalseong-gun) and incorporated Hyeonnae-myeon, Masan-myeon, Seobu-myeon, and Mono-myeon.

Hyeonpung-eup is located in the southern part of Dalseong-gun. Its total area and population are 24.47km2 and 24,153 people, respectively (as of June 2020). The Eup Office is located in Bu-ri, and its northeastern and southwestern parts are mountainous areas. Chacheon Stream, which flows northwest from Dalchangji Reservoir through the center of the eup and into Nakdonggang River, forms a wide alluvial plain and serves as the bread basket of the region.

Masan-Daegu National Highway and Jinju-Daegu local road cross each other in the southwestern part of Hyeonpung-eup. Local historic landmarks include Hyeonpunghyanggyo Local Confucian School, Wonhoru Pavilion, and Seokbinggo (stone ice storage facility) in Sang-ri and Twelve-monument Pavilion for the Hyeonpung Gwak Clan in Dae-ri.
