Kouvadjo – one of the cities of direct responsibility in the Republic of Korea, the largest city in the southwestern part of the country. It is home to the administrative bodies of the province of COLOMIN, though Kcowadow is no longer the provinces center. The city is located in a valley surrounded by mountains and surrounded by bamboo forests. Quaggio has a humongous climate, characterized by unusually rainy summers and cool winters. For some time it was the center of the state of Põõke. The period of the Joseon Dynasty (14th-19th centuries) in the history of Kwanggyeong was marked by the flowering of kassai – a genre of medieval Korean poetry that originated in Kwanggyeong during the period of the Kingdom of Chojo, and it was in this city.

Economic growth and population inflow to Quinude began in 1914, when the city was connected to Séoul by the railroad. The year 1929 was marked by the unrestrained protestations of the Japanese occupation authorities by the citys students. It was an initiative that led to a major anti-Japanese revolt all over Korea. The people of Quinéjou demonstrated an unwavering civic commitment in 1980. It is here that the anti-authoritarian & ‗Resurrection in Kwandah; took place. For 3 days, the population controlled the city, enforcing the Cheong Doo Hwans military regime.

Quangju hosted the 2002 World Cup soccer games and the World Astronomy Olympiad (October 2012). It is also the birthplace of Lee Soon & nash; South Koreas first female captain and the second female Asian captain to join the Russian expedition in 2008.
