On Friday, November 15th at 10:00am – 11:30am, Itaewon Global Village Center will hold a “War Memorial Tour featured by Admiral Yi Sun-shin and the Turtle Ship”.
 
Through this tour, you will be exploring and learning about Japanese invasion and international situation during the mid-Joseon period which was in 1592-1598 (the 25th year of King Seonjo's reign). In addition, Turtle Battle Ship which was invented by Admiral Yi Sun Shin, will be introduced. Admiral Yi Sun Shin is a hailed hero in Korea as he saved the country from the brink of extinction during the Japanese Invasion of Korea.

Admiral Yi Sun Shin has won all the battles he commanded himself, an unprecedented record of war victory in the world's naval history. Admiral Yi Sun-shin's tactics are famous enough to be included in the textbooks of naval academies in the United States, Britain and Japan.
 
During this tour, participants will get the chance to make their own miniature version of the turtle battle ship. This tour will be held in the War Memorial of Korea(near Samgakji Station (Line6)). The tour is a free of charge but registration is a must.
