Rare Footage of Marilyn Monroe Singing to the Troops in Korea, 1954

It was in February 1954, during her honeymoon to Joe DiMaggio that Marilyn Monroe decided to drop in on the soldiers in Korea. It was a trip that she would later recall with enormous fondness, a time when she realized she was truly a star.

Marilyn giving her all on stage in Korea. She singing “Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend”, “Bye Bye Baby” and “Do It Again”. She said it was the highlight of her life to sing for the soldiers in Korea.
“[The trip] was the best thing that ever happened to me. I never felt like a star before in my heart. It was so wonderful to look down and see a fellow smiling at me.”
