References in the modern Korean literature in this area to the Korean medicinal plant name written in Chinese script and expressed as Sanggisaeng have been extremely confusing. This name has been considered as six species, specifically Loranthus parasiticus, Loranthus tanakae, Taxillus yadoriki, Taxillus chinensis, Korthalsella japonica, and Viscum album var. coloratum. Recently, it was suggested that sanggisaeng is not distributed in Korea; however, the plant name Sanggisaeng recorded in old Korean literature sources, such as in the Hyang-yak-chae- chwi-wol-lyeong, Hyang-yak-jib-seong-bang, and Dong-ui-bo-gam sources, among others, was identified using the name V. album var. coloratum, whereas in China, Sanggisaeng was referred to as T. sutchuenensis. The Hangeul name of Sanggisaeng had been Ppongnamugyeousali, but now the name Gyeousali is widely used.
KeyWords: Hangeul plant name, Sanggisaeng, Viscum, Gyeousali, Ppongnamugyeousali
