The Invincible Admiral, Yi Sun-sin (Part 2)

Season 3, Ep. 5

While Admiral Yi Sun-sin languishes in a filthy prison cell, the once invincible Korean navy he had built lay in ruins at the bottom of the harbour.

Outmanoeuvred and outplayed by his rival, the War Hero had been stripped of all his command and convicted of treason.

But with the coast now defenceless and Japanese invaders streaming in from all sides, the broken nation looked once again to the disgraced Admiral for salvation.

12 ships against 300, was there any hope?

One of the greatest naval battles of all time is coming up, so listen in to the final story of Korean National Hero Admiral Yi Sun-sin!
