From the American standpoint it was a draw. America went in to stop Korea from becoming communist, since it feared the "domino effect," the idea that if one country fell to communism then the surrounding ones would to, like dominoes. It was a draw because North Korea became communist while South Korea did not.

From a Korean stand point, there is no winner or loser. The Korean War has yet to end. There is no peace treaty, only a cease fire. The DMZ between North and South Korea has stopped fighting, but technically they are still at war.

There was no winner. An armistice occurred, and the country was divided by the 38th parallel into North Korea and South Korea, respectively.

: Who actually won the Korean War?Nobody won the Korean War. The Korean peninsula was divided into a communist north and anti-communist south before the war.
