South Korean Special Army soldiers perform martial arts during a rehearsal on Sept. 25 for Armed Forces Day.

Members of the South Korean military put on quite a show during a rehearsal ahead of the annual Armed Forces Day celebrations which takes place Oct. 1, the day that South-Korean forces broke through the 38th parallel during the Korean War.  The two Koreas remain technically at war since the Korean conflict was concluded with a truce rather than a peace treaty, and the day is a reminder of those who lost their lives during the war and those who are currently serving.
