Marilyn Monroe ABC >> K >> Korea

Marilyn Monroe traveled to Korea to perform for the american soldiers in 1954 during the war. Marilyn considered this to be one of the happiest moments in her life. Marilyn performed Do It Again and Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friends for the soldiers. Marilyn visited Korea in February but despite the cold weather Marilyn wanted to please the men so she wore a small dress for them. This experience made Marilyn feel and realize she could have a major impact on people. On Korea Marilyn said, "I never thought I had an effect on people until I was in Korea."
