Because Communist North Korea, with a large and well equiped army and supported by Russia and China, invaded lightly armed South Korea with the intent of subjugating it and bringing its people under the yoke of Communist tyranny. South Korea fought back and the United States and other members of the United Nations, came to its aid.

It was fought primarily because China was lost to communsim and figured that just by throwing money at it we would not stop the spread of cummunism. We also needed to prevent another nation from falling. When North Korea invaded South Korea we sent not only money but troops to stop the fall of South Korea. Thus getting the Korean War and keeping a nation free of evil communism...... also cause they could
