Aconitum coreanum (H. Lév.) Rapaics listed in the Korean Red List is a medicinal herb. We presented complete chloroplast genome, which is 157,024 bp long and has four subregions: 87,637 bp of large single-copy and 16,901 bp of small single-copy regions, which are separated by two 26,243 bp inverted repeat regions including 132 genes (86 protein-coding genes, 8 rRNAs, and 37 tRNAs). The overall GC content of the chloroplast is 38.0\%. Phylogenetic trees show that A. coreanum occupied a basal position at subgenus Aconitum clade and two A. coreanum isolated from midwestern and eastern regions of Korea are clustered together.
