Jungnangcheon is a stream that is 20km-long and a maximum 150m-wide, spanning over a total basin area of 288 ㎢. It runs south by Imun-dong, Dongdaemun-gu and past Gunjagyo and Jangangyo Bridges before joining Cheonggyecheon, bending towards the west and flowing into Hangang River. In the old days, it was known as Seowoncheon in Dobong-dong area and Junggwanggae by people in Myeonmok-dong. Because it flows in between fields, it was also called saetgae or saetgang, and, for other instances, Hancheon or Hannae as it flows into a river. Ever since Jungnyanggyo was written with a Chinese letter ‘浪’, meaning waves in the map of Gyeongseongbu published by Japanese in 1911, various literature marked the stream as Jungnangcheon (中浪川), the presently known name.
