An armistice is not actually the ending of a war but a way to stop fighting to see if something can be worked out. Most groups fighting a war want to win it. Perhaps they see that an armistice is not a true win. WW2 ended with an armistice and no one side actually won or lost.

When did the Korean war end what was unusual about the end of this war?

This may not be what you expected, but it is the answer to what you asked. 1. The Korean War was not a war, it was a United Nations Police action. 2. IT HAS NOT ENDED! A cease fire was signed on 27 July 1953. That did not decide the issue to anybody's satisfaction. There was no surrender, and no Peace Treaty. And by the way, they still shoot at each other occasionally, so even the Cease Fire is tenuous. See the Related Link.

How did Korean war come to a conclusion?

A ceasefire stopped the fighting on July 27, 1953. There was an armistice signed by North Korea, China and the UN but not South Korea. Korea is still split into North Korea, which is communist, and South Korea which is non-communist. The border, protected by a demilitarized zone, was established along the 38th parallel. Before the armistice, talks had gone on for nearly 2 years. Eisenhower had promised that if he was elected in the election of 1952, he would go to Korea and end the war. There was no simple way to end the conflict. Talks had collapsed in October 1952. In 1953, the US threatened to bomb China, but eventually a ceasefire was declared between UN forces and Korean/Chinese forces. The "De-Militarized Zone" which designates the border between North and South Korea has remained one of the most heavily-armed stretches of land on Earth. The stability of the region is threatened by the development of nuclear weapons by North Korea. === ===Through an armistice on July 27, 1953
