Chung-Mu was the given name of the great Admiral Yi Sun Sin of the Joseon Dynasty (also known as the Yi or Lee Dynasty). He was reputed to have invented, in 1592 AD, the first armoured battleship ("geo-buk-seon" / 거북선, meaning "turtle ship") which was the precursor of the present-day submarine. The fact that this pattern ends up with the left hand attack symbolizes his regrettable death having no chance to show his unrestrained potential, checked by the forced reservation of his loyalty to the king (1545-1598).
