From the moment of her birth on the Lunar New Year in 1946, she was called a Curse just because she was a girl. At the age of 5 during the Korean War, her family abandoned her because she was an extra mouth to feed. Crying and alone, an older girl found her and encouraged her to race in order to run away from the bombing. As she struggled to keep up with her new and only friend, suddenly, she was thrown backwards by the shock of an explosion. Finding the shattered body of her only friend, the young Tae Yun stood her ground and shouted up to the bomber airplanes, “I’m not going to run anymore!”
And so began her life filled with facing and overcoming challenges with a determined Can Do Spirit!
