Admiral Yi Sun-shin

If I am not mistaken, this statue near Gyeongbok Palace is of Admiral Yi Sun-shin, the great Korean military figure whose turtle boats were instrumental in defeating the Japanese in the sixteenth century.   It is located on Sejongno (Sejong Road) near Gyeongbokgung (Gyeongbok Palace) in the centre of Seoul.
