The Korean War was a war between North Korea and South Korea. The war began on 25 June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea.
At the end of World War II, the Soviet Union and the United States liberated Korea from imperial Japanese colonial control on 15 August 1945. But peace did not last five years, and countless people killed each other.
It is incomprehensible to think that both South and North Koreans suffered a great deal from Japanese colonialism. However, it is understandable to see that strong countries around the world have been playing politics over the Korean Peninsula.
Whose advantage is this? The people only die every time. What does it mean to them? A vain ideology? Who can repay the life?
- Dates: Jun 25, 1950 – Jul 27, 1953
- Total civilians killed: 2–3 million
- South Korea: 990,968 killed/wounded
- North Korea: 1,550,000 killed/wounded
Also, there were not a few cases of torture, atrocities, massacres and sexual assaults common in wars. There are many movies and books. Was there any happiness in it?
Dr. Victor Frankl says that even in that situation, one finds meaning in life. But war is all a tragedy. It’s just pain. Countless Korean War veterans testify. Who can compensate for the tragedy of war?
Mr. Man Hee Lee, a Korean War veteran, said the bullets and shells rained down, and they don’t know if their colleague was dead or alive. He couldn’t take off bloody military uniform. It was a tragedy of fratricidal conflict.

🇬🇧Korean War Veteran Tommy Clough was attached to the Gloucestershire Regiment. He was 19 years old when the Glosters were cut off from their brigade at the Battle of the Imjin River. Captured, he walked 600 miles to the prison camp. https://t.co/jEUQ97KyeV pic.twitter.com/86Ndj5N8Mo
Why do we repeat tragedy? Someone might be trying to get a benefit. Is it a virtue that I live better than others? I won’t raise my child like this. I want to raise a child who can be ashamed of having a lot.
I wish I could become such a wonderful adult.
