The capital city of South Korea located along the Han River in the north of the country near the North Korean border. During the Korean War, the city was controlled at different times by both the North Korean military and the South Korean military. By the end of the war, Seoul was in the hands of South Korea, but a majority of the city had to be rebuilt because of the damage the war had wrought.
