Legend has it that years ago a dragon lived upon the largest island amongst an archipelago in the East Sea. Upon ascending to the heavens, it destroyed all but two islands, leaving behind Ulleungdo and Dokdo.

A Korean proverb teaches that three generations must accumulate virtue to visit Dokdo.  Once getting past that first step the second challenge becomes crossing the sea; ferries are often turned back and held in the port, and on the best days even the strongest of sea legs would find the crossing unforgiving.
