Photography book on Korean War published

The writer Pak To (or Park Do, can't know for sure) published this spring in Ohmynews a long series of photographs, which he had collected from NARA (US National Archives & Records Administration). (The series "Korean War in Photographs at Ohmynews). I used to link extensively to the series, so let it be said also that Pak has published a book with some 500 photographs with the name 지울 수 없는 이미지 ("Unerasable Images", Noonbit Publishers) (from Chosun Ilbo).

Can't tell what the book is like, but the photographs we've seen in Ohmy are heartbreaking, sad, sometimes horrible, definitely worth seeing.

Here are a couple of examples:
