After the bridge across the Yalu River was opened on 1 November 1911, connecting Sinŭiju to Dandong, China, Sŏnch'ŏn station became a stop for international trains to and from Manchuria. It is still a stopping point for international trains between P'yŏngyang and Beijing.
On 27 December 1910, Korean independence activist An Myŏng-gŭn, cousin of An Chung-gŭn (who had assassinated Ito Hirobumi the previous year), attempted to assassinate the Japanese Governor-General of Korea, Terauchi Masatake, at Sŏnch'ŏn station; this was one of the precursors to the 105-Man Incident.
