Some records indicate that there are nineteen Pong clans, but only the clans of Kanghwa and Haum can be documented as legitimate clans. The majority of the Pong clan lives in either Hwanghae Province or Kyonggi Province. According to legends, an old woman walking along the beach in Haum district of Kwanghwa found a stone box floating on the water. Inside was an extraordinary baby boy, whom she presented to Koryo king Injong in 1107. The king named the baby Pong-u and raised him within the precincts of his court. Pong-u’s descendants continued to live in the Haum area, and the clan came to be known as the Haum Pong clan. The founding ancestor of the Kanghwa Pong clan is unknown, and there is speculation that perhaps the Kanghwa Pong clan is in fact descended from the Haum Pong clan. German: unexplained.
