나와 마릴린Historical fiction based on true events about two women who seem the most unlikely to ever meet Alice a Korean war survivor and translator for the American forces in Seoul and Marilyn Monroe who is visiting Korea on a four day USO tourFebruary 1954 Although the Korean War armistice was signed a year ago most citizens of Seoul still battle to return to some semblance of normalcy Conditions are dismal Children beg for food and I thought the Marilyn part was a bit forced and felt rather superfluous the story of a young woman during the Korean war would have been powerful enough on its own
