Yi Sun-sin

No one would deny the virtuous deed of Admiral Yi Sun-sin who saved the falling Joseon Dynasty and people of despair with the invasion of Japanese invaders. When Admiral Yi SUn-sin was appointed as Jeollajwasusa one year prior to the Imjin War breaking out, a friend of him had the following dream.
There was a large tree with its height reaching to the sky and has dense branches. On the tree, there were several thousands and tens of thousands people climbed up and rested their bodies on the tree. And, when the root of the was pulled off and about to fall, a person buttressed the large tree with his body to support, and looking closely to him, it was Yi Chungmugong.

How could Admiral Yi Sun-sin make his friend to have such an inspiration to dream like that? The dream could be thought of as making up the story to glorify the heroic records of Admiral Yi Sun-sin. However, on the other side of this dream story, it would be reasonable to reflect the expectation on Admiral Yi Sun-sin due to the unstable domestic and overseas political situation.

Consequently, Admiral Yi Sun-sin rescued the country in dire peril during the seven years of war, Imjin War, the largest war in East Asia of the 16th century. No one would deny the virtuous deed of Admiral Yi Sun-sin who saved the falling Joseon Dynasty and people of despair with the invasion of Japanese invaders.
