They take a walking tour of the United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Busan while speaking about the construction and maintenance of the cemetery, the design and its purpose, the important landmarks, the unique history of the site as the only United Nations cemetery in the world, and the way in which it honours the history of the Korean War and the memories of the soldiers who fought and died during its battles.
