These wild greens grow all over South Korea in the Spring. Many years ago it was solely a wild green, but now it is farmed in gardens and has a wider availability. This green has a strong smell, herbal fragrance, and is slightly bitter to the taste when eaten raw. However, adding the sugar and cooking the mugwort (ssuk) greens in this recipe helps to cut down and balance out the bitterness.
