Fascinating. These girls started performing for American soldiers in 1954 for chocolate and beer which they then exchanged for food. And since they didn’t know any English, they had to phonetically memorize every song ahead of time — country hits like “Ole Buttermilk Sky.” THE ROOTS OF K-POP.

The Kim Sisters

(from the website above) 

[The Kim Sisters] were a South Korean trio who had a successful career in America during the 50’s and 60’s. To support their family during the Korean War, they performed songs for American GIs who then spread word of them after returning home. They were signed to a contract and went to the US, eventually performing 22 times on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Can I just add how much I love that they were successful Asian-Americans in the mid-20th century? Also I’m glad vintage style inspiration isn’t spared for Asian women!
