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.
