  • If your international friends ask where to visit in Seoul, you should recommend this site. Specially they are from our allies in the forgotten war. They are free and they can learn lots of Korean history related to the war.
  • Very beautiful place! I recommend visiting and remembering those who paid the ultimate price for freedom in Korea.
