Rubus coreanus, known as bokbunja,[3] Korean blackberry,[3] or Korean bramble,[4] is a species of raspberry native to Korea, Japan, and China.[5] It produces edible berries (not true berries in the botanical sense) that are fermented into bokbunja ju, a Korean fruit wine (although the majority of fruit commercially grown for producing this drink are actually Rubus occidentalis, native to North America).[6][7][8][9]

The wine made of bokbunja is called bokbunjaju (Korean: 복분자주).
