Sorokdo (Sorok island) is an island in Goheung, Jeolla, South Korea. "Sorok" means "small deer", which the island is supposed to resemble.
It takes five minutes to reach Sorokdo from Nokdong-hang (Nokdong harbor) in Goheung. As of 3 March 2009, Sorok-Daegyo (bridge) is open for traffic.
Sorokdo is the site of a leper colony with a history of patient abuse including slave labor, forced sterilizations, and starvation, under both Japanese and Korean administration.
