ABSTRACT
The article presents an abbreviated version of an article, which appeared in the "International Herald Tribune/Asahi Shinbun" on March 3, 2008. It explores the impact of the Korean War and the Vietnam War on the people of East Asia. The bloody Korean War, which erupted in June 1950, raged for three years. The cease-fire of July 1953 resulted in the creation of a strip of buffer zone, now known as the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Cheorwon lay north of the 38th parallel, but after the fighting in the Korean War, it became incorporated into South Korea.
