The DVD set has been released
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To make things better and for all who have missed some episodes, the DVD set was released on August 17th. If one wants to get more in-depth information about the Admiral Yi Sun Shin, if it is possible locate a copy of a novel called THE SONG OF THE SWORD, which was a best seller in Korea back in 2003 and recalls the life of the admiral, after his arrest and his release. The author was inspired by the autobiography of Yi out of which some real text are used to add some realism to the text. The novel gives you a very deep and broad look at the Stoic character that Yi had. The book is called called El CANTO DE LA ESPADA and was released in other languages. I read my copy in Spanish.
