On 21 November 1948, Seonheul-ri was burnt down and villagers hid in Moksimul Cave. Later, they were found and killed by the army. The 9th Regiment of Hamdeok started killing Seonheul villagers hiding in Doteul Cave, and on the next day, killed around 40 villagers hiding in Moksimul Cave. Then the 9th Regiment tortured people and found other hideouts such as Daesubyi Cave and Benbaengdui Cave, and killed the people who were hiding there as well.
