Good pix.

Why so hard to find S.Korea military pix? U gotta learn something from Chinese propaganda department

There are also good pics of S.Korea troops in Iraq, I saw some in Chinese forums.


Keep them coming..

I just did a small search on Chinese sites:

Hey good pictures.
I think the lack of photos may have to do with the fact that every guy needs to serve. So they go into the military and do their time and come out and usually they're not really into it as "hobbyists." Those guys who are into it generally would stay in the services and those who come out would have other interests.
Plus also, South Korea's deployment to Iraq isn't very popular so I guess there just isn't a lot of photos of them going around.

Probably because they're not expected to be out for too long. After all, Korea is not that big of a place. Either way, the smaller the better, especially if you consider how hilly Korea is.
