Historical drama centered on the famous Korean Admiral Yi Soon-Shin (1545-1598), who saved Korea and China from conquest by Japan in a string of brilliant naval victories.

The drama deals with his life from childhood to his death in the midst of his final victorious battle against the Japanese, and shows the contributions made by his support staff and ship's crews. Written by The Grand Panjandrum

Yi Soon-Shin
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing show. I do not watch much television, and I am certainly not a fan of war dramas, but this show has my husband and me absolutely riveted. My husband served in the US military and was stationed in Korea, which is why he started watching this series. I couldn't help but get caught up in it myself. The acting, sets, costumes, and filming are all superb. The series focuses on Yi Soon-Shin's extraordinary abilities as a leader of leaders and a canny strategist; it's a refreshing change from the mindless muscle-headed "tough-guy" Hollywood war heroes we're used to seeing. So if you're looking for an Asian Rambo, don't bother with Yi Soon-Shin. But if you are a true history/military buff, you will not be disappointed.
