It is worth noting that the remains of 913 Chinese soldiers have been buried at the cemetery since 2014.

In order to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers, the Chinese Air Force dispatched two J-20 fighters to escort the remains of these Chinese volunteer soldiers.
It is estimated that 197,000 Chinese People's Volunteers soldiers died during the war, with the majority of them buried on the Korean Peninsula. For the past nine years, China and South Korea have worked together to hand over the remains of fallen soldiers in South Korea.
