The film mainly follows the famous 1597 Battle of Myeongryang during the Japanese invasion of Korea (1592-1598), where the iconic Joseon admiral Yi Sun-sin managed to destroy a total of 31 of 133 Japanese warships with only 13 ships remaining in his command. The battle, which took place in the Myeongryang Strait off the southwest coast of the Korean Peninsula, is considered one of the greatest victories of Yi.Written by
The fact check of the movie is completely off history. But it claims it is accurate. In actual battle, General Yi used the meticulous planning and strategy to defeat the enemy with minimal loss. The movie makes it seem like Yi wont it out of luck and courage.
Actual events that are recorded in the historical document aren't even used. All turtle ships were destroyed in the previous battle but the movie wanted to make it dramatic... cheasy drama at that.
Many historical records show that the Japanese fleet was 130 ships. Only one document recorded it as 300 out of mistake according to historians and the movie decided to go with that because 300 is more dramatic than 130 obviously.
And there is no swirling tornado in the water. It was just fast current. The things the movie got wrong are countless. What's worse is that these fake dramas didn't make the story any more interesting. Actual history is far more interesting and dramatic.
General Yi's actual battles and story is one of the most dramatic in world history. And this movie isn't it. This movie is a pure GARBAGE!
