Yi Sun-Sin - Korean Naval Commander Paper Toy - by Kamibot



This is the paper toy version of Yi Sun-Sin (April 28, 1545 – December 16, 1598), a Korean naval commander famed for his victories against the Japanese navy during the Imjin war in the Joseon Dynasty, who became an exemplar of conduct to both the Koreans and Japanese. Despite the fact that he had no prior naval training, Admiral Yi was never defeated at sea, and military historians have placed him on par with Admiral Horatio Nelson as one of the greatest naval commanders in history. His title of Samdo Sugun Tongjesa , literally meaning "Naval Commander of the Three Provinces", was the title used for the commander of the Korean navy until 1896. Over the course of his career, Admiral Yi fought in at least 23 naval engagements, all against the Japanese. In most of these battles, he was outnumbered and lacked necessary supplies. His most famous victory occurred at the Battle of Myeongnyang, where despite being outnumbered 133 warships to 13, he managed to disable or destroy 31 of the 133 Japanese warships without losing a single ship of his own. Yi died from a gunshot wound at the naval Battle of Noryang on December 16, 1598. His last words, "The battle is at its height. Beat my war drums. Do not announce my death", are often cited as an important part of his character.


Esta é a versão paper toy de Yi Sun-Sin (28 de abril de 1545 — 16 de Dezembro de 1598), um comandante naval coreano conhecido por suas vitórias contra a marinha do Japão durante a Guerra Imjin da dinastia Joseon.
Ele detinha o título de Samdo Sugun Tongjesa, que literalmente quer dizer "Comandante Naval das Três Províncias".
Yi também é conhecido pelo seu inovador emprego dos barcos-targaruga. Ele foi um dos poucos almirantes coreanos que foram vitoriosos em todas as batalhas navais (no seu caso 23) as quais ele comandou.
Yi foi morto por uma simples bala na batalha de Noryang (16 de Dezembro 1598).
Enquanto morria, disse "não seja conhecida [ainda] a minha morte" (querendo evitar a perda de moral das forças próprias e o ganho das inimigas).
