This Korean game is a hack of "Side Arms - Hyper Dyne" (Capcom), the Side Arms logo resides somewhere in the code. The font used in this game is also the standard Capcom font that appears in "Side Arms - Hyper Dyne", "1942", "Commando", etc...

The game name was the Korean ship in Chosun dynasty 1392-1910. It's the first iron covered ship all over the world. General Soonsin Lee expected the invasion of Japan. So, he ordered developing the ship. When Japan invaded in Chosun in 1592 and general Lee and the Chosun naval forces fought with the Japanese, the ship killed a lot of Japanese soldiers. At last, in 1598, Chosun defeated the Japanese and fended off the invasion.
