Close to three million Chinese soldiers fought in the Korean War between 1950 and 1953, in support of communist North Korea. More than 180,000 died.
Now, 60 years since the end of the war, the BBC has been to Henan province, China's main agricultural area, to meet two survivors of the conflict: Zhang Kaiyi and Zhang Hengshui.
