Hanabusaya asiatica Nakai
The Hanabusaya asiatica is literally called the Kumkang lantern ("Kumkang Ch'orong") in Korean as it was found in the Kumkang Mountains by Nakai, a Japanese botanist, while Korea was under the rule of the Japanese Imperialism (1909 -- 1945). For this reason, Nakai named the flower after a Japanese governor-general to Korea at that time, Hanabusa.
