a city in North Korea
- The initial "R" is replaced with "N" (or with nothing or other consonants in other examples) in the South Korean standard, which is also reflected in the spelling, the jamo ㄹ (l/r) (L/R) is replaced with ㄴ (n) (N). The modern standard South Korean romanisation doesn't use ŏ to romanise the vowel IPA(key): [ɔ] (jamo: ㅓ (eo)) as is still done in North Korea, a digraph eo is used instead.
