Also known as South Chungcheong Province

Chungcheongbuk Do Province
There are close to 2 million Koreans living in Chungcheongnam Do with another 20,000 foreigners living and working in the province. Chungnam-do is very low and flat with no point exceeding 1,000 meters high making it the lowest province in the country.
