To mark the 68th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War on June 25, 85 people including war veterans and their family members have been invited to South Korea.

During the six-day trip, the veterans are set to visit the War Memorial of Korea in Seoul and the Odusan Unification Observatory in Paju. The invitees will also participate in a commemorative ceremony at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Busan on Tuesday. 

Ahead of the memorial events, the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs hosted a special session for the guests on Sunday to let them experience Korea’s traditional culture. During the event, the veterans tried on the traditional Korean hanbok and took pictures together.
