Identification of the Stars listed in "Seong Kyung"
The position and magnitude of 1449 stars listed in "Seong Kyung" (by Byung Kil Nahm, 1861) are compared with those in modern western star catalogues for their identification. 923 stars out of 1449 stars were identified within the range of accuracy, delta RA <= 20.0s, delta dec. <= 1.0 min. and delta m <= 0 or +- 1. When delta RA and delta dec. increased to delta RA <= 1.0 min., delta dec. <= 15.0 min. and delta m = 0 or +- 1, 339 more stars could be included in the list.
