Pungeoje is the term for rituals held in the coastal regions to pray for peace in the village, safety for the fishermen at sea, and a big catch.

Byeolsingut and haesinje are other terms used to refer to this big catch ritual. Prayers for safety and a big catch are offered to the sea deity Yongwang (Dragon King), the procedures generally officiated by a shaman. Byeolsingut of the eastern and southern coasts; pungeoje from the island of Hwangdo off Anmyeondo on the western coast; and haesinje of Ulleung and Jeju islands are some of the most widely known big catch rituals.
