Tenleytown in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
If one Jeong-nang is hung frome [sic] the door, it means that the residents of the home are away, but in a nearby area. If two are hung frome the door, it means that the residents are traveling far from home. If three are hung from the door, it means that the residents are traveling out of town and would not be returning home for a few days.
Hanging Jeong-nang was a way for the neighbors to communicate trust and information to each other, which was possible on Jeju Island because there are no beggars or thieves.
