The name BUsan, "Cauldron Mountain", refers to the ring of peaks, rising to over 2,500 feet behind the city. During the Yi dynasty Busan had key roles not only in trade with Japan, but in repelling its invasions. In 1592 that Admiral Yi-Sun-Shin defeated the Japanese armada with his ironclad "turtle ships" off the coast nearby. Trade with the outside world started in 1876, when the Yi Dynasty was forced to abandon its isolationist policy and sign a treaty imposed by Japan. During the Korean War, Busan served as the country's temporary capital.
