The USA was fighting for South Korea to try to prevent communist rule and help with their containment of communism. The USSR was helping North Korea to try and unite Korea under communist rule.
North Korea attacked first, pushing past the capital and cornering most of the South Korean army.
Then the US troops arrived and helped push the North Koreans back past the capital.
Douglas Macarthur wished to continue pushing and try to take North Korea entirely by launching an amphibious attack.
The plan was going to work, but then the Chinese, fearing that the USA would try to attack them, joined the war.
They pushed the US troops back over the 38th parallel, and after 2 years, the 38th parallel was decided as the border between Korea.
