Monday marks the 68th anniversary of the outbreak of the 1950-1953 Korean War on June 25. In commemoration, the National Assembly and ROK Army Headquarters host a two-day photo exhibition of 239 photographs taken by late US Army sergeant Thomas B. Hutton, who fought in the Korean War. 

His grandson Col. Brandon D. Newton, currently stationed in South Korea, donated the pictures to the ROK Army Headquarters. The photographs show not only of the livelihoods of Koreans at the time, but also historical buildings in Seoul and Daejeon, such as Seoul Station, and the Japanese Government-General building.
