'''Jangyu''' is a [[Administrative divisions of South Korea|''myeon'']] in [[Gimhae]], [[Gyeongsangnam-do]], [[South Korea]].  It is the site of the [[new city]] of Jangyu.  It is located in the historical Nakdong River valley of southern Korea, where the [[Gaya]] confederacy was once located before being absorbed into [[Silla]], one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.  Rapid development in this area began approximately 5 years ago in order to take pressure off the neighboring cities of Gimhae, of which it is commonly referred to as a suburb, and Changwon, the provincial capital. By Korean standards Jangyu, with a population of 110,000, is considered the countryside.
