Most of the stones you're talking about are not gravestones, but rather the record of the king's story and their achievement.(Stone Monument) Turtle-shaped stones are a pedestal. (귀부, 龜趺)
In the myth, most turtles are considered symbols of longevity and patience. Korea has used such decorations meaning to pray that the king's achievements and the story will long memoried through the generations.
In the video I watched, this was in a tomb. Actually, that's why I wrote it that way. I didn't know what they were, so I couldn't really describe them. That's exactly what I wanted to say. This seems to be the same as my culture.
