This earthquake is the third largest among earthquakes that occurred on the Korean Peninsula and in the surrounding waters this year. There were 10 earthquakes with a magnitude of 3.0 or higher that occurred on the Korean Peninsula and in the surrounding waters this year.

There was one earthquake with a magnitude of 4.0 or higher (on May 15, in the sea area 52 km northeast of Donghae-si, Gangwon-do), and the remaining nine were 3.0 or more and less than 4.0. Broadening the range beyond magnitude 2.0, there have been a total of 59 earthquakes this year.
