TRY TO REMEMBER: Documentary Film Screening at DCIFF 2016
Try to remember

Directed by Dae-Hyun Kim
South Korea / 2015 / 73mins / US Premiere

Lee Nan-young, a famous Korean singer, made her debut at OK Records in the 1930s, and married Kim Hae-song, a genius composer at the time. In 1945, during the years of liberation, the KPK musical troupe gained popularity with the duo of Lee Nan-young and Kim Hae-song untill Kim was kidnapped by North Korea. During the Korean War, Lee produced Koreas first vocal girl group Kim Sisters with her daughters Sukja, Ae-ja, and her niece Min-ja who inherited their parents musical talent. With the help of Lees training effort, Kim Sisters caught popularity at the American 8th Army base. They also had a chance to perform in Las Vegas, for the first time as Asians, making strong appeal to Americans. Audiences met three shy girls who fluently sang songs in English without even knowing the language.
