I wish I could go to this South Korean military expo

A family member traveling in South Korea was leafing through the on-board magazine of the KTX Express bullet train system and found an ad for a military expo there (all in Korean, with the exception of the word "Expo" in Roman letters).  South Korea, of course, faces an active military threat from North Korea, which has thousands of artillery pieces aimed at Seoul from the other side of the DMZ.  Military conscription is universal for young males.

The graphics are quite alluring and make me wish that I could attend and participate in what looks like a great hands-on exhibit — see below.  Here is a machine translation of the text.

But it is this portion of the graphics that caught my relative's attention:

Firing a machine gun never looked like such fun.  Too bad my relative is flying home Labor Day.
