Red Tomb

Around July or August 1950, during the outbreak of the Korean War, in combat free zones un-occupied by North Korea, the Guidance Alliance Massacre began. During the outbreak of the Korean War they were forced into preventive custody. With only the thought of acting for their own advantage, the Rhee Syngman regime gathered them up and in valleys in every region around the country, without discrimination, slaughtered them or committed the crime of burying them at sea. The main agents of the massacre were, at that time, Rhee Syngman's bodyguards, the Counter Intelligence Corps and the military police. In this process, the fact that the police and right-wing groups took on a secondary role shows that through a consistent system of command, an organized massacre was committed.

Of the estimated 230,000-450,000 members across the country, the majority were farmers, and were people with no interest in political ideology. For no other reason than joining a government-made enlightenment group, these people, without even receiving a trial, were falsely victimized. All because of national ideological standards that had nothing directly to do with the Korean War.
