Say ‘Insam’ Rather than Ginseng

Voluntary Agency Network of Korea (“VANK”) and Geumsan Ginseng & Herb Development Agency (“Agency”), initiated a petition calling for the English name of the plant “insam” to be distinct from the all-encompassing term “ginseng.”

VANK and the Agency argue that the Korean name “insam” should be used for ginseng, just as the Korean name “kimchi”, “tteokbokki”, and “gimbap” are used for these Korean dishes. This is because ginseng has a distinct cultivation, diversity, and health benefits that are unique to Korea.

The two organizations are advocating for “insam” to be listed in English dictionaries separately from the currently registered term “ginseng.”
