Aengmu was the working name of a famed kisaeng of Daegu in the early 20th century. The name literally means "parrot." She was a leading donor to the National Debt Repayment Movement. Donating 100 won to the cause in 1907, she explained that it was inappropriate for her to donate more than a man; but if a man donated more, she would also donate more, even unto death.[1]

Her real name is not known; neither are her dates of birth and death.
