Yi Eokgi – When the Eastern part of the Korean navy collapsed in front of the Japanese onslaught, Yi Eokgi was in command of half the Jeollanam Navy despite being only 32 (15 years younger than Yi Sun-shin). He participated in many of Yi Sun-shin’s battles as a respected capable commander.

        “This is the nation’s most symbolic statue, in the heart of Seoul,” said Lee Sang-keun, secretary-general of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, which has led the criticism of Yi’s statue. Yi Sun Shin has long been taught to be one of Korea's national heroes, while Won Kyun has been relegated as a national antagonist. Also, a close inspection of Yi Sun Shin's writings suggest that Won Kyun wasn't as incompetent as taught in Korean schools and perpetuated through academia.
