What people are saying:

The 6.5-meter-high bronze statue of Admiral Yi Sun-sin, a war hero, is located in Gwanghwamun Square in front of Gyeongbokgung Palace. The statue of the admiral is standing, holding a sword in his right hand, and the soldier's determination on his face. There is a miniature ghost ship near the statue, which represents the warship the admiral commanded during the war. There is also a small museum to commemorate the admiral. There is also a fountain called "12.23" in front of the statue, representing 23 battles won by the admiral with 12 military ships. It is recommended that you start your trip to Seoul from here, starting with the statue of King Sejong, and then walking to the main palace. There is a nice free museum under the two statues to introduce you to the stories of these two great Koreans. The section on Admiral Yi Xuan detailed the great navel battle, showing how he overcame many difficulties from the Japanese invasion and saved South Korea, all thanks to strategy and better ship design. There are also real stories about David and Goliath.
