War Memorial Museum of Korea

On the last day of our stay in Seoul, we didn't have much time left. So, we passed by the War Memorial Musuem of Korea to take a look. It was built to exhibit and memorialize the military history of Korea. We didn't have a chance to go inside but just took some pictures around the site. As you can see, if you are into antique war machines, you may find it worth a visit. For us, we were more interested in a nearby protest.

We had no idea what the banners was about (Google translate didn't help that much). However, we could tell that someone's son died and the mother was not happy with how it was handled. We later on found out from a Korean couple that it's about how a solider in training was killed but was not properly recognized. In a country where military service is mandatory, this kind of conflict is probably unavoidable.
