Talents:

Yi Sun-sin was a famous military strategist, general, and hero of the people renowned in the history of the Korean peninsula.

Yi Sun-sin worked alongside Admiral Won Gyun and Admiral Yi Eok-gi to beat back Japan’s naval forces during the Japan’s initial invasion of Korea in 1592 in four major engagements, earning a string of victories as exemplified by the Battle of Hansan Island.

Yi Sun-sin had risen to the rank of ‘Naval Commander of the Three Provinces’ by 1593, but was subsequently relieved of command and arrested as a result of a plot to remove him involving a Japanese double agent in the Korean Royal Court. Yi was later freed and returned to the army as a common soldier.

A terrible defeat at the hands of the Japanese navy in autumn of the same year saw Yi Sun-sin quickly restored to his former position whereupon he carried out a major restructuring of the navy and won a major victory in the Battle of Myeongnyang, Yi lost his life in the Battle Noryang Strait the following year, taking a stray arquebus bullet as the united Korean fleets worked to repel the Japanese armada.

Yi Sun-sin is also known as a prolific author of many excellent poems in addition to his military accomplishments, the most famous of which is probably the ‘The Song of Hansan Island’, roughly translated to: “The autumn night darkens the sea on a kingdom of water. Wild geese fly high in the chill air. My worried heart keeps me from sleep as the moonlight illuminates my bow and sword.”.
