There is a local saying in Dongju: "Fuzheng in the summer, Dapu in the winter." Dapu Village is located on the southern end of the island, sheltering it from the northeastern winds of winter, while Fuzheng Village, in the north, is more comfortable in the summer, when the wind blows from the southeast. Early residents of the islands lived by this saying, moving between the harbors of these two villages to fish depending on the season.

Fuzheng was once the most prosperous village on Dongju, but due to the gradual decrease in fish catches, residents of the village moved elsewhere, and it is no longer the bustling place it once was; all that is left are the dilapidated stone houses, the Dongquan Lighthouse overlooking the village, and the White Horse Respected King Temple that protects it.
