Sincheorwon Traditional Market

  • Sincheorwonri was incorporated to North Korea after the liberation in 1945. It was recovered during the Korean War in 1950, and civilians started to settle in the area since June of 1954. The town originally belonged to Jipori, but Sincheorwonri was divided when Cheorwon county hall from Cheorwon-eup moved to Jipori. The locals voluntarily established Sincheorwon Market after 1954 as a place for exchanging living necessities. The beautiful scenery of nearby Myeongseong Mountain (922m) attracts hikers throughout the year.

Cheorwon - Local Delicacies

  • Cheorwon Pork Ribs

    A person visiting Cheorwon should try this rare food. It is Cheorwon Pork Ribs, and its inclusion of wasabi makes it different from those of other regions. The combination of pork ribs and wasabi sounds like an awkward union, but it gives an unique and savory flavor, solidifying the food as a must-item for tourists visiting Cheorwon. It is easy to assume wasabi used for pork ribs comes from Japan, but it is a home-grown product. The fact that it is locally produced in Cheorwon makes it more special.
