    General Nami's Grave

    by snuggie Updated Apr 23, 2006

    Not far away from entrance of the island lies the grave of General Nami and this island was named after him. General Nami died at a young age of 28.General Nami was falsely denounced as a traitor and was executed together with his mother and faithful retainers. It was not until 1818 during the reign of King Sunjo that it was officially revealed that false evidence was used to convict General Nami.

    General Nami passed the military service examination at the age of 17 and suppressed a riot led by Lee Shi-Ae in the 13th year of King Sejo' reign of Joseon Dynasty, and then was promoted to 'Byeongjopanseo (Minister of National Defense)' at the age of 27.

    An peom by General Nami near his grave;
    "I will cut the boulders of Mt. Baekdu until my sword is worn away,
    I will water my horse with the waters of Duman River until it dries up,
    If a man cannot subjugate an entire nation by the age of 20,
    then no one will deem him a hero."
