Interview of Cheongsong county governor, Kyung-Hee Yoon
○What is the representative cultural resource of Cheongsong-gun?
Cheongsong!! No matter who denies, we have the best mountain in Korea, the mountain of the mountain, Juwangsan!
Every single person in Korea knows about the greatness of Juwangsan.
UNESCO World Geological Park, the city of Slow City, and the whole Cheongsong-gun is listed as UNESCO World Geological Park.
From now on, we’ll make the most of this. We also have a reputation. What does Cheongsong mean?
Cheongsong in Chinese characters literally means green pine tree, which also represents ‘cleanliness.’ If Cheongsong-gun preserves the clean image well, I believe that one day we will shine.
When people say, ‘Oxygen Café Cheongsong-gun, they mean, ‘everything is fresh and clean like oxygen.’ We tend to use the phrase for image marketing as well.
Cheongsong is actually clean like oxygen and has a good reputation. When you think of Cheongsong,
don’t you get the image of generous people and clean natural environment?
○What is the current status of Cheognsong’s Golden Apple’s domestic sales and export?
Everyone in Korea knows about Cheongsong’s Golden Apple.
We, public officials, are all wearing jackets, and I have two kinds of apples for them: the red apple and the yellow apple.
The red apple is the famous ‘Busa’ apple, Cheongsong’s representative apple brand. The yellow apple indicates the golden apple of Cheongsong-gun, and it’s also registered as a brand too.
The official product name is ‘Golden Jin,’ and it is very luxurious and costs twice the price of the red apples.
We don’t have any supply left for the export. They are hard to get in Korea as well.
The taste of golden apples is also quite different from the regular ones. It is a very high-end product.
Domestic sales are enough for us right now, but in 10 years, we’re planning to make it even more high-quality to open the road of export.
We need to resound Cheongsong apple’s fame all around the world.
As an agricultural area, Cheongsong is working on high-quality apples to go beyond Korea and be the best in the world.
No agricultural areas in Korea can mimic the Cheongsong apples.
The cultivation technology is 50%~60% less than Cheongsong’s technology.
Cheongsong has a huge daily temperature range. The land is in the form of the basin, which is a great environment to produce delicious and high-quality apples.
We’re also working on many scientific types of research for Cheongsong apple’s cultivation technology.
By now, you’ll know how great the Cheongsong apple is. They are the best!
