Bio

Yi Sun-shin was a legendary general who led the Joseon navy during the Imjin War. Known for his wisdom, poise, and loyalty, he was a supreme patriot of his country. Unfortunately, despite this, he was chastised and  framed by his ranking superiors, leading to episodes of isolation and punishment. However, Yi Sun-shin did not complain and resolutely overcame all of these obstacles to become a hero of the region for generations to come.

In his youth, Yi Sun-shin was known as righteous, brave, and kind. He studied many classical books, especially those related to military tactics. Beyond this, he was accomplished in many other fields, including calligraphy, poetry, and writing. He even wrote the “Diary of Chaos” during the war.

Because of his obvious talents and his focus on self-growth – rather than hollowly flattering higher officials like many of his contemporaries – he was targeted by corrupt officials, and his rise to prominence was not smooth. Despite this, at age 40, he was promoted to military governor of the Jeolla Province. Immediately, Yi Sun-shin began to prepare for a potential invasion of the enemy. He chose to focus his energy on training their navy, and redesigned their turtle ships, which had been somewhat abandoned in previous years. Sure enough, within the year, his prediction of war came to be and while many of the other commanders fled in fear, he steadfastly engaged in battle. He took advantage of the wide and deep ocean to build flanking routes for his ships. He would encircle the enemy with a tactic known as “Crane Wing Formation.” His success with this tactic led to the “Battle of Hansan Island” where Yi Sun-shin overcame a 10-1 numbers disadvantage to become victorious. Afterwards, he took charge as the supreme admiral in charge of all the region’s naval forces.

Later, the enemy again sent many ships to mount another invasion. However, due to the political strife at the time, the opposing court ministers framed Yi Sun-shin, which lead to his imprisonment. This resulted in a collapse of the navy that he had worked so hard to cultivate. However, after several battlefield losses, the officials knew they had to release him in order to turn the tide against their opponent. When he returned, he immediately changed their fortunes, and during the Battle of Myeongnyang, he took another astounding victory.

It was shortly after though that the noble admiral was seriously injured in the Battle of Noryang. To keep the morale of the army high, he stated “The war is at its height – wear my armor and beat the war drum. Do not announce my injury!” His forces completed the victory, and Yi Sun-shin’s fearless resolve made him a legend of the Joseon Dynasty.
