Part where they got pushed back to the 38th twice.
This was false. The Chinese entered in the war at the time of the second map.

Nope. They only had to push back as allied Korean units were loosing the plot and they were not prepared to face off with an Army of millions.
Eventually they came out on top quite swiftly, pushing all these millions to the 38th and forcing the commies to stop the war that they started. Remember major US deployment started with the Pusan pocket. Fast forward to 2016 South Korea is global economic power house and regional military power. While the North is a poor, deplorable wasteland.
And this was false too. The Chinese defeated the troops of the US and their allies. Big and painful defeats for them.
