Why do people tell us about Nelson or Drake all the time when Yi Soon-sin exists and nobody talks about him? Did any of those admirals win a battle without losing a ship? Did they win 13 boats to 120 to 333 ships? Did they sink 500 ships without losing not even one?
Well, Yi Soon-sin does.
The first time you hear about him you say that is impossible, I should check this, but when you hear about Hansando, Myeongyang, Sacheon, Okpo, Noryang...
But Yi Soon-sin has enemies from Japan:
- Toyotomi Hideyoshi
- Wakizaka Yasuharu
- Todo Takatora
- Konishi Yukinawa
But also enemies in Korea, who sent him to jail:
-The Western Faction
But some friends:
And some like Won Kyun who is first a friend and then he sends him to jail.
Sometimes the information is not exact.because they invent all Yi Soon-sin's life and not only the battles.
