Park Tae-seung, 87, speaks during an interview in his office in Yeongju City about his experiences as a child soldier, 70 years after he was drafted in 1950, at age 17, during the Korean War.

South Korea conscripted more than 30,000 soldiers between the ages of 14 to 17 for the war. An estimated 3,000 of them died. One survivor prays daily for their souls.
