There are statues all over Korea dedicated to Admiral Yi, who was famous for attacking and defeating the invading navy of Japan in the late 1500s using a flotilla of iron-clad “turtle boats”. This one is my favourite and can be found in the park at the base of the Pusan Tower. What a guy.
Of course, this dragon did not really belong to Admiral Yi who, as far as I can tell, possessed no pets. But it’s nice to dream sometimes. I love dragons.
