Yi Sun Shin Goes to the DMZ

OK, a brief break from the DPRK trip for this commercial announcement...

They are going to sail a replica Turtleboat through the part of the Han River that runs through the DMZ. Now, I don’t know if you saw Heaven’s Soldiers, but it would seem that the producers weren all that far off with the idea of pairing Yi Sun Shin with North and South Korean soldiers in 2005 – only this time it is the Turtleboat that travels to 2005, not the Korean soldiers slipping back into the 1500s...
