S. Korean Cluster Bomb

In the War Memorial of Korea in Seoul a cluster bomb is pictured with other weapons. S. Korea has not signed the Cluster Munitions Ban and there are Korean corporatons which manufacture such weapons. Why weapons that have killed tens of thousands of civilians (between 25 and 50% children) in locations post-conflict would be boastfully on display in a place that, according to the War Memorial's website, is about "learned lessons from war" in order to "never experience the tragedy of war again"? Maybe they just want the S. Korean public to know that their safety is ensured by such an impressive arsenal, at least if they are ever threatened by another nation's young civilians.
