Although there are many special characteristics of Korea, perhaps one of the most eye-catching ones is that Korea is a divided nation.
Unfortunately, Korea, (or the “Koreas”) is the last and only divided country in 2019. Knowing more about the background of the Korean war may not only enhance the understanding of Korean culture but may also help sympathize with your friends. Located in Yongsan district, “The War Memorial of Korea” exhibits preserved materials from the past. Anyone of all ages is welcome to join in a wide array of programs and events such as military music and honor guard events, drawing contest, cultural event and more. And most importantly, the admission fee is free!
