CCF124th Division prepares to attack

But ... they were going against our Marines.

CCF 42nd Army Commanders prepare to attack

Commanders of the veteran CCF 42nd Army 124th Div, prepare to attack X Corps in east Lin-Chiang Hyesanjin area, late October 1950

The CCF 124th division was the only major Chinese force to meet defeat in their First Phase Campaign. The 124th did roll back a ROK regiment, but then ran into the 7th Marines of 1stMarDiv. They took a terrible beating, which led to the CCF leaders deciding to destroy all of 1stMarDiv as a keystone of their next, or Second Phase, Campaign.

They didn't succeed with that plan, either.
