It's wrong because one lives on an island, not in it. One lives in a city or town or district: so you could say, "I live in Jeju City in Jeju Province on Jeju-do Island."

2 reasons. 1)Because it's an island. In English, you live ON an island. 2)Because 'island' is part of the location's name, 'Saltspring Island', so it should start with a capital letter. "I live on Saltspring Island"
