Song Deokbong was a Korean female poet of the mid Joseon dynasty.

Life

Song Deokbong married the scholar Yu Huichun, who was exiled in 1547. When he boasted of his faithfulness to her, she reprimanded him in letters by saying his boasting of such matters does not do him any credit. She furthermore let him know that she mourned his mother for three years and arranged the funeral, which she implied were tasks of higher value. He took her admonishment without rancour and they continued to correspond with each other in verse.

She was seen as a virtuous woman writer.
