Goseong-gun is located at the southern end of central Gyeongnam. It was the capital of Sogaya, an ancient kingdom of advanced culture.[1] It is endowed with natural tourism resources of beautiful mountains, ocean, and fields.

It is adjacent to Geoje, Sacheon, Tongyeong, Masan, and Jinju. It is also linked to the Daejeon-Tongyeong Expressway, National Roads No. 14 and No. 33. [2]


Its location is quite southern, which makes the climate mild and warm all year around. That is, Goseong is classified as an oceanic climate. The southeast wind blows during the summer and the northwest wind, which is the seasonal wind, blows during the winter.


Goseong was the center of the Gaya kingdom during ancient years. Goseong county held an annual "Sogaya festival" reemerging marching of ancient people with legends.

Additionally, events also deal with General Yi Sun-sin who beat Japanese invaders at Danghangpo which is near port of Goseong.[3]

Between 1 April and 12 June 2016, the county will host the Gyeongnam Goseong Dinosaur World Expo (see 'Fossil sites' below for more info).


Goseong was designated as a cluster for shipbuilding, including development with its neighbor, Geoje area.

In July 2007, the Ministry of Finance and Economy confirmed the establishment of the complex after securing the land. The construction is scheduled to begin in April 2008. [4]

Fossil sites

Goseong is known for, among other things, its fossilized dinosaur footprints. The county will host the Gyeongnam Goseong Dinosaur World Expo in 2016 for 73 days, between 1 April and 12 June, at Danghangpo Tourist Site and Sangjogam County Park. Goseong county participated in the International dinosaur festival of Zigong, Sichuan Province of China which is a sister city.

The whole area was on the way of propelling registration of UNESCO natural heritages with other southern coast-lying regions. Fossil sites on the southern coast of Korea are the largest scale in Asia.[5]
