I do not understand why it translated ‘Dodamsambong Peaks’, because bong is meaning peaks.
‘Dodam’ means just name of local.
‘Sam’ means three and ‘bong’ means peak.
so Dodamsambong is meaning ‘three peak located in Dodam’

Story of Jeong Do-jeon
Sambongsan Mountain in Jeongseon-gun, Gangwon-do, was washed away during the flood and became the current Dodam Sambong Peak. Jeongseon County is said to have been unfairly demanding taxes on Sambong, which flowed all the way to Danyang. Jeong Do-jeon, a young boy at that time, showed his wit and insisted, “We didn’t ask you to float Sambong off Jeongseon, but we had no reason to pay taxes on the peaks that are useless because they are being damaged by blocking the water.”
A married couple‘s story
The biggest rock is called Janggunbong (Husband Rock), the rock on the left side which appears to be showing coquetry is called Cheopbong (Mistress Rock), and the rock on the right side which is turning away from the big rock is called Cheobong (Wife Rock). The peaks are said to represent an angry wife turning away from her husband who has taken a concubine in order to secure a male heir.
