Orangeville, Ontario
(Dufferin County in Southern Ontario)

Established in the 1830s by Irish Ulster and British emigrants, but it was named after industrious Orange Lawrence who arrived in 1844 from Connecticut who bought land, built mills, opened a general store and tavern, founded the first school and was postmaster. So strong was his influence that everyone agreed it appropriate that the village be named Orangeville.

Gangnam (a district of Seoul, South Korea).

Some of you may be familiar with Psy's Gangnam Style video...I'm Korean, and I'd never heard of him, or K-pop, until last year. My 76-year-old father looked at me like I'd grown 2 heads when I said I had no idea who Psy was. LOL.
