Haui-do is an island off the South Korean coast in the Yellow Sea, part of Sinan County in Jeollanam-do province. Its name means 'a lotus floating on water' and although it is an island by name, it actually comprises 56 separate islands, only nine of which are inhabited.[1] Approximately 57 kilometers to shore, it has an area of 14.46 km² and is home to more than 1,900 people.[2] It was the birthplace of former South Korean president Kim Dae-jung.[3]
