South Korea celebrates its 66th Armed Forces Day with an air force and military show on Wednesday marking the day the country's forces broke through the 38th parallel during the Korean War.

North and South Korea are still technically at war since the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a ceasefire, rather than a peace treaty.
