A military official (musin) of the mid Joseon period, who lived from 1575 (the 8th year of the reign of King Seonjo) to 1627 (the 5th year of the reign of King Injo)

Yi Sangan’s common ancestral seat (bongwan) was Gwangju who was known by the courtesy name (ja) of Jeongi. His father, Yi Gwangrok, was a military officer of the Five Commands (Chunguiwi), and his mother was a daughter of Kwon Jeok. Yi Sangan was adopted by his uncle Yi Gwangguk.

In 1603, Yi Sangan passed a triennial military examination (singnyeon mugwa). In the following year, he was appointed as Herald (Seonjeongwan), and then became a Tutor at the Bureau of Military Training (Hullyeonwon Seupdokgwan). In 1615, Yi Sangan was appointed as Magistrate (Pangwan) in the region of Haeju; however he resigned due to illness. In the following year, he was reappointed as Magistrate (Gunsu) for the counties of Jindo and Goksan. He also served as Magistrate of Gasan, Changju and Ganggye. During the Manchu Invasions of 1627, Yi Sangan fought alongside Nam Iheung, the Army Commander-in-Chief (Byeongma Jeoldosa), and was killed in the Battle of Anju.

In a posthumous conferment of honors, Yi Sangan was promoted to the position of Fifth State Councilor (Uchanseong) with the rank of a high-level official (Sungjeongdaebu). Chungminsa Shrine in Anju was erected in honor of the memories of Yi Sangan and Nam Iheung. Yi Sangan’s posthumous title (siho) was Chungmin.

Yi Sangan’s tomb is located in Hadaewon-dong, Jungwon-gu, Seongnam-si. The epitaph on his memorial stone (sindobi) was written by Yi Gyeongseok Magistrate of Yangju.
