My mother is Korean and I really want to grow this bean for her for a taste of home.

I have a fairly long trade list if you're interested in anything I have. If not then let me know what you're looking for I just may have it or have a way to get some!

Try the link below. It's a large page, but the section about 7th from the bottom lists them:

Insuk's Wang Kong: 80 days. Phaseolus coccineus A true red flowering runner bean. I used to raise runner beans with great success in Idaho, but have failed with all types here in Iowa except for this one. Vigorous, colorful and productive, but a mix of seed colors. 1 oz. Pkt. - $3.00 OG
