Gangnam Style issopopularthatnumerouscelebritiesshowcasedthe Gangnam style dance on their televisionshowsandfamousathletesperformGangnamstyle during their dancing ceremonies afterscoringpointsintheirsport.EvenaU.S.Navyhumanoid robot, named CHARLI-2, dancedthe Gangnam style dance on 24. Oct. 2012 atVirginia institute of technology.Although most international fans don’tunderstand the majority of the lyrics, theword “Gangnam” remains engraved on manypeople’s tongues as they sing along to thesong’s catchy tune. These fans seem to knowthat Gangnam refers to a location in Korea,however,manyareunawareoftheimplicationsalluded to by the song, when it refers to“Gangnam style.”Gangnam district officially referred to asGangnam-gu, and is one of the 25 gu or localgovernment districts, which make up thecity of Seoul. According to the 2012 census,Gangnam is recorded to have a population of527,641,makingitthefourthmostpopulateddistrict in Seoul. Gangnam is also the thirdlargest district in Seoul with an area of 39.5km2.Until the early 1980’s Gangnam and itsneighboring areas were known as the leastdeveloped district in Seoul. However, aftera prodigious development during the last30 years, it earned the reputation of beingthe most affluent, dynamic, and influentialarea in both Seoul and South Korea. It evenbecame the site for the 2010 G-20 Summitand the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit. Thisprosperity and high class influence is whatinspired the song, Gangnam Style.In addition to being a prosperous district,Gangnam also offers a wide selection ofentertaining experiences. The Gangnamsubway station area is one of the largestmeeting points for young people, due to allthe famous restaurants and hang-out placeslocated there. The subway station itself andthe roads around it are directly connected tomany poplarized districts in Seoul, includingYangjae, Bundang, Sadang and Hannam. Itsgeographicalandcommercialmeritsnaturallylead the place to become more developed.The best shopping experience in thedistrict can be found in Apgujeong-dong andChungdam-dong, where department storesandmanyotherfashionstoresareconcentrated.The COEX mall at Samsung subway stationis another popular multi-complex shoppingmall where many restaurants, theaters, stores,and other places including the aquarium arelocated.At Gangnam, people can also learn aboutKoreanculture.TheKimchimuseumatCOEXinforms the world about one of the essentialsofKoreancuisine,Kimchi.AndatKukkiwon,the World Taekwondo Headquarters, peoplecan experience taekwondo basic stances, self-defense and board breaking at the low cost of20,000 won.Close to the modern COEX mall is theBuddhist Bongeunsa temple. It is a uniqueplacetovisitastravelerscanenjoythepeacefultemple-like atmosphere in the middle of sucha populated city. The temple offers a “templestay program” where tourists can experiencethe life of a monk for a few hours.Garosougil, which literally means “tree-linedstreet,”isbestknownforcozyrestaurantsand cafés. In addition to big franchise cafés,there are also several small cafés which offertheirownuniquemenus.Oneofthehighlightsof these cafés is that they serve famous fusionKorean style desserts. Patbingsoo is a populardessert, which has sweet red-bean porridgefonduecoverediniceflakesandsyrup.VariousPatbingsoowithdifferenttoppingsandflavorsare available.Since Gangnam literally means “South ofthe River,” Gangnam also has a huge boatingculture, including wind surfing, and waterskiing near the Han River. Also, Chunggye stream and Yangjae stream run throughGangnam, providing a modern publicrecreation space in downtown Seoul.All Service members and communitymembers assigned in South Korea have easyaccess to the many venues. Consequently, itwould be a big mistake not to look into thegreat opportunities offered by Gangnam.

  • PAGE 24 • WELCOME EDITION www.army.mil/korea THE KOREAN WAROutbreak of the WarThe Korean War began with a surpriseattack June 25, 1950, when eight divisionsand an armored brigade (90,000 soldiers) ofthe North Korean People’s Army attacked inthree columns across the 38th parallel andinvaded the Republic of Korea. Many of theNKPA were battle-tested, having served inthe Chinese and Soviet armies in World WarII. The 98,000-strong ROK Army, its combattraining incomplete, and having no tanks andonly 89 howitzers, was no match for the better-equipped NKPA.Aided only by a 500-man U.S.Korean MilitaryAdvisory Group, the ROKAwasoverwhelmed. Spearheaded by tanks, NKPAforces moved rapidly through the UijongbuGap on the west side of the Korean peninsulaand captured Seoul, South Korea’s capital.The ROKA fled south in disarray across theHan River toward Pusan, a major port at thesoutheastern tip of the Korean peninsula.On June 25, the U.N. Security Councildenounced North Korea’s actions and calledfor a cessation of hostilities and withdrawalof the NKPA to the 38th parallel. PresidentHarry S. Truman directed General of the ArmyDouglas MacArthur, whose Far East Commandwas located in Tokyo, to evacuate Korea ofAmerican dependents and send ammunitionto the beleaguered ROKA. The followingday, Truman sanctioned the use of Americanair and naval forces below the 38th parallel.The next day, as the situation worsened, theUnited Nations requested its members tofurnish military assistance to repel the invasion.Truman then extended American air and navalactions to North Korea and authorized theuse of U.S. Army troops to protect Pusan.MacArthur, however, recommended committingKorean War overview, 1950-1953a U.S.Army regiment in the Seoul area. Trumanagreed, and on June 30 he told MacArthur touse all forces available to him.South to the NaktongGround forces most readily available toMacArthur included the 1st Cavalry Divisionand the 7th, 24th and 25th Infantry Divisions,all under 8th U.S. Army headquartered inJapan; the 29th Regimental Combat Team inOkinawa, Japan; and the 5th RCT from Hawaii.But these units were hard pressed to defendthe ROK because they were undermannedand their mobility and firepower had beenreduced by shortages of organic units andequipment. In an effort to delay the NKPAadvance, MacArthur ordered the 1st Battalion,21st Infantry Regiment of the 24th InfantryDivision moved to a defensive position astridethe main road near Osan, 10 miles belowSuwon. Named Task Force Smith after thebattalion commander, this 540-man commandlacked effective anti-tank weapons and wasill-prepared to stop the NKPA. Outflanked byan NKPA division and suffering some 200casualties and the loss of all equipment, TFSmith broke into a disorganized retreat.Meanwhile, at the United Nations’ request,the United States formed the United NationsCommand, which would integrate all Americanand allied forces. MacArthur became itscommander. He assigned command of groundforces in Korea to Eighth U.S. Army underLt. Gen. Walton H. Walker. At the request ofROK President Syngman Rhee, Walker alsoassumed command of the ROK Army.By the beginning of August, after the arrivalof the 29th RCT from Okinawa on July 26,Eighth U.S. Army held only a small portion ofsoutheastern Korea. Walker ordered a standalong a 140-mile line arching from the KoreaStrait to the East Sea west and north of Busan.Known as the “Pusan Perimeter,” Americandivisions occupied the western segment, basingtheir position along the Naktong River; the ROKArmy defended the northern segment. WithPusan secure, additional troops and equipmentbegan arriving to reinforce EUSA’s perilouslylong, thin defensive line.At the same time the arrival of the U.S.Army’s 5th RCT from Hawaii, the 2d InfantryDivision and the 1st Provisional Marine Brigadefrom the United States, and a British infantrybrigade, strengthened EUSA.IncheonHaving traded space for time, MacArthursaw that the deeper the NKPAdrove south, themore vulnerable it became to an amphibiousenvelopment. The amphibious force consistedof the 1st Marine Division and the 7th InfantryDivision, its ranks fleshed out with severalthousand Korean recruits. MacArthur’s decisionto land at Incheon was a dangerous butremarkably bold and successful gamble.Tidal conditions allowed only a small windowof opportunity for the landing. Moreover, hewould be committing his last major reservesat a time when no more general reserve unitswere available in the United States.Following the successful, lightly opposedlandings at Incheon on Sept. 15, arduous street-to-street combat took place to liberate Seoul.On Sept. 29, the capital city was returned toPresident Rhee.Although many communist guerillas wouldremain behind, the NKPAvirtually disintegratedand ceased to be an effective fighting force.North to the YaluTruman authorized MacArthur to send hisforces north of the 38th parallel on Sept. 27,provided there was no indication that majorSoviet or Chinese Communist Forces wouldenter the war. The U.N. General Assemblyapproved the UNC’s entry into North Korea 10days later, when it called for the restoration ofpeace and security throughout Korea.Americanand ROK Army forces rapidly advancednorthward.Warnings of Chinese intervention increasedas the UNC pressed deeper into North Korea.At a Wake Island meeting on Oct. 15, Trumandirected MacArthur to continue his advance if hebelieved UNC forces had a reasonable chanceof success. Hoping to end operations before theonset of winter, MacArthur ordered all groundforces to advance to the northern border asrapidly as possible.The New WarBeginning on Oct. 25, UNC forces met stoutresistance almost everywhere across theirfront. On Nov. 1, the 1st Cavalry Division’s 8thCavalry Regiment fought fierce battles with theCCF. Severe fighting continued Nov. 5–6, afterwhich the CCF abruptly halted its activities inall sectors, leaving the UNC uncertain as towhether the CCF’s actions had been merelydefensive.Tenth Corps, reinforced by the U.S. 3rdInfantry Division, and EUSA slowly renewedtheir offensive. Thinning logistical lines ofsupport, inadequate intelligence and sub-zerocold added to the difficulties of the UNC. Withthe 7th Division leading, X Corps reached theYalu at the town of Hyesanjin. EighthArmy unitsbegan moving forward from the ChongchonFighting with the 2nd Infantry Division north of the Chongchon River, Sgt.

  • WELCOME EDITION • PAGE 25www.army.mil/koreaon Nov. 24, and were hit hard by strong CCFattacks. On Nov. 27, the attacks engulfed theleftmost forces of the X Corps at the Changjin(Chosin) Reservoir, and by Nov. 28th, UNCpositions began to crumble. MacArthurinformed Washington that the UNC faced anentirely new war. With more than 300,000Chinese in North Korea, he directed Walker towithdraw to escape envelopment by the CCF.MacArthur ordered X Corps to fall back to abeachhead around the port of Hungnam.Unrelenting CCF pressure, which oftenincluded surprise nighttime assaults andhand-to-hand combat and the rigors of a harshwinter, made the UNC’s retreat dangerous andcostly. The 2d Division, covering the withdrawalof I Corps and the ROK II Corps from theChongchon, encountered an entrenched CCFforce below the town of Kunu-ri. The CCFsurrounded and severely punished the 2dDivision as the unit fought its way through thegauntlet to escape.Changjin (Chosin) ReservoirAbandoning Pyongyang on Dec. 5, elementsof 8th U.S. Army reached the 38th parallel10 days later, where it prepared to protectSeoul and develop a coast-to-coast defense.Tenth Corps fought a 13-day running battleto the east coast as it withdrew to Hungnam.Near the Changjin Reservoir, the 1st MarineDivision and elements of the U.S. 7th Divisionmet stiff opposition from the CCF in positionsoverlooking the mountain road to the sea. The3d Division, positioned near Hungnam with XCorps, was sent inland to open the road andprotect the withdrawalof the Army and MarineCorps units. On Dec. 11,X Corps completed its moveto Hungnam, and Americanand ROK Army forces begantheir evacuation to Pusanthe same day. Tenth Corps,which became part of 8thU.S. Army , completed theevacuation Christmas Eve.A Change in LeadershipCCF attacks and successivewithdrawals had weakenedEUSA, and General Walker’saccidental death on Dec. 23, was anotherdispiriting blow. Lieutenant Gen.MatthewB. Ridgway, who arrived from Washington,D.C., on Dec. 26, took command of EUSA.Despite Ridgway’s hurried efforts to brace thedefensive line across the peninsula, he and hismen could not contain the CCF’s New Year’soffensive. Seoul fell in early January 1951.Ridgway pulled EUSA’s entire front belowthe 38th parallel. When the CCF offensivefaltered in mid-January, Ridgway was ready toresume the offensive and adopted a strategyto inflict maximum casualties on the enemywith minimum losses to his troops. Ridgwayproposed a war of maneuver, slashing theenemy as it withdrew and fighting delayingactions when the enemy attacked. Land gainsbecame less important than damaging theCCF/NKPAand keeping the enemy off balance.Ridgway’s offensive began on Jan. 25,advancing slowly and methodically, ridge byridge, phase line by phase line, wiping outeach pocket of resistance before movingfarther north. Operations Thunderbolt, Killer,Ripper, and Rugged carried the U.N. forcesforward. EUSA liberated Seoul in mid-Marchand neared the 38th parallel. For the nextmonth, EUSA cautiously probed north of theparallel, expanding the front first to phase LineKANSAS, 10 miles above the 38th, and thento the Iron Triangle, an enemy logistical areanorth of Line Kansas.Ridgway’s ground strategy proved apt forthe new, more limited objectives thatAmericanand U.N. officials adopted of clearing theCCF/NKPA from South Korea and openingnegotiations with the enemy. Because ofdifferences regarding war strategy and goals,Truman relieved MacArthur as United NationsForces commander on April 11, and replacedhim with Ridgway. OnApril 14, Lieutenant Gen.James A. Van Fleet succeeded Ridgway ashead of EUSA.Eight days after Van Fleet assumedcommand, the enemy began its springoffensive. The major CCF and NKPA attackwas directed at Seoul. The I Corps containedthe enemy’s advance. EUSA halted the attackon May 20, after the enemy had penetrated30 miles. Seeking to preclude another enemyattack, Van Fleet ordered EUSA forward. Bythe end of May, EUSA had progressed to aposition just short of Line Kansas, havingvirtually cleared the ROK of enemy troops. VanFleet moved next to reach Line Wyoming, whichwould give EUSA control of the lower portionof the Iron Triangle. When the Soviet Union’sdelegate to the United Nations proposed acease-fire in Korea on June 23, 8th U.S. Armyoccupied Line Kansas and the Wyoming Bulge,ground suitable for a strong defense.The Static WarAs the fighting lapsed into patrolling andsmall local clashes, armistice negotiationsbegan on July 10, 1951. The opposingdelegations agreed that hostilities wouldcontinue until an armistice was signed. Exceptfor brief episodes, action along the front for thenext two years never regained the momentumof the first year. On Nov. 17, the two delegationsagreed that a line of demarcation during thearmistice would be the existing line of contactprovided an agreement was reached in 30days. On Nov. 12, Ridgway ordered Van Fleetto cease offensive operations. Fighting taperedoff to patrol clashes, raids and small battles forpossession of outposts in no-man’s land.The battlefield stalemate was periodicallyinterrupted by artillery duels, ambushes, raidsand costly small-scale hill battles such as OldBaldy. The battlefield lull enabled the Armyto return the 1st Cavalry and 24th InfantryDivisions to Japan and to replace them withthe 40th and 45th Infantry Divisions, two of theeight Army National Guard divisions that weremobilized during the war.Anew United NationsForces commander, Gen. Mark W. Clark,replaced Ridgway in May 1952, and LieutenantGeneral Maxwell D. Taylor replaced Van Fleetas 8th U.S.Army commander in February 1953.As armistice negotiations entered their finaland decisive phase in May, the enemy steppedup combat action. CCF forces launchedregimental attacks against EUSA outposts inthe west. In July, the enemy sought to wrestmore ground from the UNC by driving awedge eight miles deep into 8th Army’s centralsector. Taylor quickly contained the enemyand counterattacked, but with an armisticeagreement imminent, 8th U.S. Army haltedits attack on July 20 short of the original line.Finally, on July 27, 1953, the Armistice wassigned and all fighting stopped.After 37 months of combat, total UNCcasualties reached more than 550,000,including 95,000 dead. American lossesincluded 33,686 killed and 103,284 wounded.United States Army casualties alone totaled27,728 dead and 77,596 wounded. The bulk ofthese casualties occurred during the first yearof fighting. The estimate of enemy casualties,including prisoners, exceeded 1,500,000 ofwhom 900,000 were Chinese.TheArmy deployed eight divisions to Korea--the 1st Cavalry Division; the 2d, 3d, 7th, 24th,25th, 40th and 45th Infantry Divisions; andthe 5th, 29th and 187th RCTs.

Some of these youngmen perform their obligation to their country bybecoming integrated into the Eighth U.S. Armythrough a unique program known as KoreanAugmentation to the U.S. Army.KATUSA Soldiers are Republic of KoreaArmy Soldiers who serve under the U.S. chainof command, but are commanded by the ROKArmy in personnel management.The KATUSA program began in July 1950,through an informal agreement betweenthe ROK president and General of the ArmyDouglas MacArthur to augment U.S. forcesduring the early stages of the Korean War. Until1982, KATUSA Soldiers were selected fromeither the Army Basic Military Training Centeror cadres of ROK Army units.Currently, KATUSA Soldiers are chosenrandomly among a pool comprised of thosewho have demonstrated English proficiency asmeasured by a standardized test.The KATUSAprogram is important becauseKATUSA Soldiers comprise approximately 10percent of the total Eighth U.S.Army manpowerin Korea, with more than 3,500 KATUSASoldiers serving side-by-side with their U.S.counterparts.The program also serves as a combatmultiplier and increases combat readiness forthe U.S. and ROK combined defense capabilitythroughout the Korean peninsula. In addition,the program is symbolic of the U.S and ROKalliance and mutual support systems.Because of their limited service time,KATUSASoldiers have a promotion system thatdiffers from U.S. Soldiers. While theirAmericancounterparts gain promotion by amassing pointsand attending boards, KATUSASoldiers serve ina rank for a specified period of time and are thenautomatically promoted to the next highest rank.ROKA staff office has five major missions.These include KATUSAmanagement, KATUSAdiscipline, ROKA-directed training, U.S. andROK friendship activities and U.S. and ROKliaison work.Serving as a KATUSA Soldier is a traditionthat strengthens the Republic of Korea and theROK-U.S. military Alliance.Korean Augmentation to the United States Army(Above, below and left) KATUSA-U.S. Soldier Friendship Week, 2012.

  • WELCOME EDITION • PAGE 27www.army.mil/koreaKOREAN DEMILITARIZED ZONEPANMUNJOM — The Korean Warbegan on a Sunday morning in 1950, whenCommunist North Korean struck South Koreain a pre-dawn infantry and artillery assault. Overthe next three years it is estimated that aboutone million South Koreans were killed or wentmissing in the conflict.An additional 33,686 U.S.Servicemembers perished in battle at placeswith names like “Heartbreak Ridge” and “PorkChop Hill.”Almost exactly three years after the conflictbegan, a cease-fire was declared on July 27,1953 and since that time North and South Koreahave been separated by one of the world’smost intensely guarded borders. The KoreanDMZ cuts across the peninsula near the 38thparallel, along the line of fighting positions heldby each side when the cease-fire was called.That cease-fire remains in effect today.A journey to the DMZ helps to illustrate theimportance of the U.S. military presence inKorea, and the vital partnership of the US-ROKAlliance.Interesting sites to visit include DorasanStation, a railroad that runs between the twoKoreas; the “Third Infiltration Tunnel”, oneof four known tunnels constructed by NorthKorea; The Military Armistice CommissionBuilding, and the Bridge of No Return, a historicremnant of the Cold War era, which crossesthe DMZ in the Joint Security Area. The bridgeis especially noteworthy as it was used forprisoner exchanges at the end of the KoreanWar. The name originates from the fact thatprisoners were given the choice to remain inthe country of their captivity or cross over tothe other country. But if they chose to cross thebridge, they would never be allowed to return.Today, a trip to the Korean DemilitarizedZone can be a surreal experience.Often described as the most heavilydefended border in the world, this remains oneof the only places on earth where large armiesstill stand toe-to-toe in formidable opposition.Inside the DMZ, Panmunjom is a heavilyfortified encampment, patrolled at all times byROK soldiers in stoic silence. Rigid protocoldictates that visitors are not to wave, shout orgesticulate in any way toward North Koreanguards positioned just yards away. For themost part, it’s exactly what one would expectfrom such a place. But the DMZ reveals a fewsurprises. It may be the last place one wouldexpect to find a popular tourist attraction with agift shop and a one-hole golf course.Servicemembers, Civilians and FamilyMembers are encouraged to visit the DMZwhile stationed in Korea.

Soldiersand FMWR advisors work hand-in-hand withcommanders, command sergeants major,and first sergeants to provide superior leisureprograms and help direct the resolution ofquality of life issues for Soldiers.What is BOSS?The Better Opportunities for Single SoldiersProgram supports the overall quality of singleand unaccompanied Soldiers’ lives. BOSSidentifies real Soldier well being issues andconcerns by recommending improvementsthrough the chain of command.BOSS encourages and assists single Soldiersin identifying and planning for recreational andleisure activities.Additionally, it gives single Soldiers theopportunity to participate in and contribute totheir respective communities.History of BOSSThe BOSS program was established in 1989to respond to the recreational needs of singleSoldiers, who make up 40 percent of the Army.As the program was implemented throughouttheArmy, it became evident that well being wasthe primary concern of single Soldiers. In 1991,the Chief of Staff of theArmy officially expandedBOSS to include all aspects of soldiers’ lives.BOSS members later began to express aninterest in participating in community serviceprojects.Recreation and leisure, well being (Qualityof Life), and community service are the corecomponents of the BOSS program.Director of FMWRUSAG Red

Knowing how to sound out words can help with reading streetsigns, subway station names, and names of businesses. Many English and otherforeign words are written in Hangul in Korean. You’ll be amazed at how many signsyou can read and excited when you discover that you recognize English wordswritten in Hangul. There have been many different styles of romanization for Koreanover the years. Recently a revised romanization of Korean has been adopted. It wasdeveloped by the National Academy of the Korean Language from 1995 and wasreleased to the public on July 7, 2000, by South Koreas Ministry of Culture andTourism. This guide uses that revised romanization standard. To properly pronounceromanized Korean, use the pronunciation guide at the right.ROMANIZED KOREAN PRONUNCIATION GUIDEConsonants in Korean sound similar to English consonants. Generally, hard consonants inKorean like “k” and “p” are not as hard as the English versions unless a double consonantlike “kk” or “pp” is used. There are many exceptions that you will learn through experience.Vowels can be a little bit tricky. The romanized korean letter “i” is always pronounced with along “e” sound like in the word “seen”. The romanized letters “e” and “ae” are pronouncedwith a short “e” sound like “beg”. The letters “oe” together sound like the word “way”. Theletter “a” is pronounced with the short “a” sound like in the word “blah”. The letter “o” ispronounced like the vowel sound in the word “boat”. The letter “u” is pronounced like thevowel sound in “swoon”. The vowel combination “eo” is pronounced like “aw” in “saw”. Thevowel combination “eu” is pronounced like the vowel sound in “good”. The vowel combina-tion “ui” is pronounced like “whee”. All of the vowel combinations that start with the letter“y” and “w” are pronounced with a “y” or “w” sound added to the beginning of the sound.
