Why did the Korean War start?

The Korean War seemed to be a war between South Korea and North Korea, because the north wanted to expand beyond its 49 parallel and the south wouldn't hear of it. This was true but really the superpowers (USA and Russia) were just using it as a front to combat each other. USA started the war to undermine Communism and protect the American way of life.
