In Korean, sajaseong-eo (Hangul: 사자성어; Hanja: 四字成語) are four-character idioms, the analog of Chinese chengyu and Japanese yojijukugo, and generally but not always of Chinese origin.[1] They have analogous categorization to the analogs in other languages, such as gosaseong-eo (고사성어; 故事成語) for historical idioms.

A list (in Korean) can be found at 부록:사자성어; a list with English translations may be found at: "Structure of four character idioms".
