North Koreans refer to the Korean War as the "Glorious Fatherland Liberation
War," which they claim (and most believe) they won.
 South Koreans refer to the War by the date it started- 6/25... They just
say "six, two, five war" in Korean. They'll know what you mean if you say
"Korean War," however.
