Definition of Incheon:
1. A city and a harbor in South Korea near Seoul
We visited Seoul, Busan, and Incheon on our trip to Korea.
Incheon is the third biggest Korean city.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: the spelling
Inchon would be probably believable, but it lacks the subtlety of Korean pronunciation and does not comply with the generally approved transcription of Korean names and words, making Incheon the correct form of the city name.
