Marilyn Monroe in Korea

18 Feb 1954, South Korea --- 2/18/1954- Korea: The power of a woman. Over 10,000 GI's turn out to hear and see Marilyn Monroe as the bosomy blonde makes an appearance in Korea, February 16th. Not since President Eisenhower made his pre-inaugural visit has there been such a turnout for a celebrity. The serviceman traveled from all points of the Korea peninsula to get a look at the movie queen. --- Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS
