Dangjin is a city in South Chungcheong Province, Republic of Korea, located on the south shore of the Bay of Asan. Dangjin has sea borders with Incheon, Pyeongtaek, and Hwaseong, and land borders with Seosan, Yesan, and Asan. Its name means "Tang ferry," and refers to the historic role of Dangjin's harbor in connecting Korea to the other side of the Yellow Sea. This role continues to be important in the city's economy, which relies on a mixture of agriculture and heavy industry. The city has the same Hanja name (唐津市) as Karatsu in Saga Prefecture, Japan.
