The turtle first arrived on land to look for the rabbit in Waldeong Island, Waldeong Island has many posts that tell of the legend of Byeoljubu-jeon. The rabbit that reached the front sea of Waldeong Island was frightened by the shadow of Waldeong Island in the moonlight and jumped into the sea. A small island in the shape of a rabbit emerged where the rabbit perished. It is now called Rabbit Island. To the left of Waldeong Island sits the Turtle Island. This island has a clear shape of a turtle. Bito Island is flanked by Turtle Island and Rabbit Island deep in the mystery of Byeoljubu-jeon.
