A gun (군; ) is an administrative unit in both North Korea and South Korea similar to the unit of county. In South Korea, A gun has a population of less than 150,000 (more than that would make it a city or si), is less densely populated than a gu, and is more rural in character than either of the other 2 divisions. Gun are comparable to British non-metropolitan districts. Counties are divided into towns (eup) and districts (myeon).
