Thanks Run Forever

Last month, while strolling on the streets of Seoul, we chanced upon a photo exhibit about the Korean War. This year will mark the 60th anniversary of North Korea’s bold attack on its southern “brother” that began on June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953.

The photo exhibit is called “Thanks Run Forever” and it features old photos of the war and general 411 on the participating countries. They sure have used a good scanning software for this exhibit. The Philippine flag wave mightily alongside the other admirable countries sent its soldier to help South Korea defend its democracy.

The photo exhibit is located at Cheonggyecheon Plaza (near Gwanghwamun). As far as I know, they move it to other places. I saw the same exhibit last October at Gwanghwamun Plaza.


^^Now, it is Korea’s responsibility to inspire people of other countries, give them hope for future and return their favor.

Here are some of the pictures I took with the Samsung NV100-HD I got from the Korea Tourism Organization:

  1. hi ms betchay!

    thank you for sharing this to us. having helped South Korea during the war, i think, is one of the proud things that we could have done as Filipinos and I’m glad that they are recognizing our efforts. I do hope that the Filipinos would not forget our Korean war veterans. And certainly, I do think that South Korea should be an inspiration to us because if they can rise from the ashes of war, so could we.

  2. cannot help but feel proud that we were one of the countries that sent soldiers to help South Korea. i’ve read that 112 Filipino Soldiers died because of that. i took a picture of the names of the Filipinos who perished.
