Garnet bearing metasediments from the Ogcheon Supergroup in the Goesan area, southern Korea, preserve evidence of several earlier deformation and metamorphic events, previously unrecognized. This study, based on a 3-D thin section observation of the rock, has revealed six distinctive planar structures including five foliations and micro-fold acial planes inside the porphyroblasts (S₁ to S₃) and five foliations in the matrix (S₂ to S₆), besides weak structures locally overprinting some of these matrix foliations. The rocks studied experienced early formation of shallow foliation during D₁, succeeded by NE-SW shortening (D₂), vertical shortening towards the NE-SW (D₃), NW-SE shortening (D₄) that developed the regional NE strike, vertical shortening (D₅) causing the variable dips of early planar structures, E-W shortening (D₆) causing local northwards rotation of the NE structures and some younger weak deformation.
