Turning turtle


At the Turtle Ship Festival, which is designed to mark the 471st birthday of Admiral Yi Sun-shin on April 28, children float self-made turtle-shaped toy ships on the Cheonggyecheon in central Seoul on Tuesday. Admiral Yi made turtle ships and defeated Japanese invaders with the iron-clad battleship in 1592. [NEWSIS]
