London - Londoner
The name of the city I live in is Jeonju.
Can I say a person who live in my city Jeonjunian? or how?

So you mean there's not any specific rule for that to be generalized and can just be used for some famous instances.
Would you please provide us with some other examples?
moon7296The name of the city I live in is Jeonju.My guess is that no one has yet established an English word for that, so you can be the first to invent it.
It appears that you want to add a consonant before adding the ending. That's fairly common, so you can use that approach if you wish. To be consistent with English usage you might consider the following as candidates for your new word:
Jeonjuian, Jeonjunian, Jeonjuer, Jeonjuner, Jeonjuese, Jeonjunese, Jeonjuite, Jeonjunite
Your suggestion of Jeonjunian is as good as any.
