Apart from knowing that this peninsula is in South Korea, I know nothing about it other than its name, Goseong, and its main city, Tongyeong. When I first saw the old map on the card, I really thought it looked just like a dragon and wondered if it was deliberate.
The name apparently means "command post" and refers to Admiral Yi Sun-sin who was a 16th century naval commander. He died undefeated in war, so my idea of his command post looking like a dragon my not be too fanciful after all.
