The Korean war began when North Korea invaded South Korea in 1950, ostensibly because Syngman Rhee, the leader of South Korea had threatened to invade North Korea. The invasion was labeled as a pre-emptive strike. Actual fighting began in this way, although the real war was between the US and Soviet Union over control of the region.
