Strengths:No need to repeat all the superlatives for Chujado. If a potential hiker has a weak stomach, the high-speed ferry to the island is going to be a gamble. Prepare ahead of time for any sea conditions. Even the most harrowing ride over will be a must-do trip to experience this island’s grandeur. An Olle climb puts a whole new perspective to an otherwise superb piece of land known for yellow corvina.
Weaknesses:Too small to even hint at. Limiting the number of Olle walkers in the future will prove proof positive to guarantee Chujado’s bragging rights do no diminish. Too many people will be a bane. Dare mentioning, there’s many stumps on the newly cut courses, a problem that can be remedied.

Quotable:“According to Jee Seung Il, Korea’s Ministry of Knowledge Economy has dubbed Chujado “a special area for the yellow corvina,” and “between 70 to 80 percent of the island’s economic income is generated by the yellow corvina.” Until 2006, since no corvina processing plants existed on Chujado to deal with the fish once it was caught, Chuja fishermen sent their catch to the mainland for such processing along with the economic activity generated by that end of the business.” -- Chris Moule, Jeju Weekly
