So how can a word have the "sea" character (海)in it and mean navigator? A navigator for sailors? But Korea isn't known for their sailors, right?

From korean wikipedia this word seems to be used primarily in naval contexts, as a title for a specific type of naval officer. They are in charge of directing navigation at sea. Check out the naval history of commander 이순신, Korea does have a rich naval history.
