ACF 530: The Fabulous Kim Sisters at The Korea Society, Thursday, April 15th, 2010

"Try to Remember," An Evening of The Kim Sisters

The next event in The Korea Society's series Facing the War: Six Decades of Film Since the Korean War will celebrate the fabulous Kim Sisters. It will consist of a video montage followed by a Q&A with Sue Kim Bonifazio.

The year is 1960, and The Kim Sisters have set the Vegas Strip afire with rich harmonies and an ability to play dozens of instruments. The sisters had been in the United States only two short years at the legendary Thunderbird—after singing for American GI's during and after the Korean War. From there, they became a staple of Rat Pack-era Las Vegas, booking clubs across the United States and appearing a record 22 times on the Ed Sullivan Show. Join us as we trace the meteoric rise of The Kim Sisters—from singing for chocolate bars in war-torn Korea to making $13,000 a week as headline entertainers—with a special montage from The Fabulous Kim Sisters and sister Sue Kim Bonifazio sharing her Stardust memories.
