What You Do Not Know About the Korean War
In 2018, Kim Jong Un abruptly stepped out onto the world stage. In 1950, the Korean War broke out and altered Taiwan’s fate; at the same time, Taiwan changed the course of the war. When the war ended in 1953, 14,000 mainland Chinese soldiers who defied the Communist Party of China moved to Taiwan, and 7,000 prisoners of war returned to the mainland. Seventy years later, the Korean War has become a “forgotten war,” but tensions on the Korean Peninsula remain in a heightened state.
