The Admiral: Roaring Currents







1597, Second Japanese Invasion

Accused by a Japanese double agent,

Admiral Yi Sun-shin is relieved

of command and tortured.

In July, Joseon's navy is

decimated in Chilcheollyang.

Japan's army advances mercilessly,

capturing two crucial regions in August,

and setting its sights on the capital.

King Seonjo quickly pardons and reinstates Yi,

who immediately rallies his

remaining warships and troops.

He obtains 12 ships that escaped

the battle of Chilcheollyang,

and encamps on the Southern Sea.

Just 20km away in Haenam,

Japan's navy sets up base,

preparing to attack with over 300 ships.

So, Admiral,

when will the troops expect you sir?

What do you mean?

The Royal orders that you've been given.

You're supposed to join forces with the ground troops sir.

The General has been very clear. He expects you to be there.

I don't doubt that's what he wants.


All respect to you Admiral.

the enemy has a massive ships send to come this way!

We're starting to see several of your men deserting their posts.

He's correct. I count it at least 50 deserters..


Just please tell us what are you thinking Admiral.

The enemy has 200 ships prepared and are ready to

invade us in any moment now!

What strategy have you developed?

Show us!.

Show us what plan you have in mind to defeat the enemy?

Let's hear from the young officers at the table!

Do you think we can win?

Do you?

Don't any of you have an opinion

for the Admiral?


You need to erase all of the doubts here!

Aside from using that damaged turtle ship,

what do you plan on doing?

You best remember you're addressing our commander!

How dare you!

You should remember your place here!

I'm your superior officer!

Shut your mouth and listen!

You don't deserve to hold any rank!

We all knew the truth about you.

That you fled from Chilcheollyang!

Do you know why we have those 12 ships out there?

because I saved them from being

destroyed in the battle.

You keep your mouth shut if you don't know the truth.

Admiral, you know as well as

anyone that this battle is futile.

You know the kind of power our enemy has,

and how they're brutal and relentless!!

They're going to defeat you!

Will do you insist on sending men into a battle

they'll never win?

This meeting is adjourned.



He's given us a direct order!

We have to obey it!

Our main priority is to repair

the ships and train the men!

Get to it!

It's clear that we have to capture King Seonjo

to end this war once and for all.

We can't just let him slip through our fingers

like he has been able to do to us before.

We must have a solid plan

and coordinate to the perfect storm!

Do you agree?

Yes, commander.

Senjoe is our rightful prize.

We can't allow Konishi to dethrone him first.

But Chancellor Hideyoshi wants us to wait for his men to arrive

before we make our move.

So it seems that's the only option we have

for right now.

Wakizaka's ships are arriving.

Yes sir those are his ships,

they've been in a reconnaissance mission.

I hope they have good information.

How many trips?

They've done 2 already,

and they've been good missions.

So then,

What do we know the help being send to us?

Has the Chancellor told you anything at all?

The only thing I"I've been told is

that its someone essential to the battle.

He's goal is to take on Yi Sun-shin.

Make sure he won't be an issue for us any longer.


It is futile to battle such a formidable foe. I command
