Choe Seung-hui


My original tumblr post was here.  Original text:


Sai Shoki (Choe Seung-hui): vintage 7×9 news service photo dated 4 November 1938.

This photo was used to promote Korean Dancer Sai Shoki’s debut in America.  At the time several rumors were circulating about Sai, including that she was the daughter of a Korean Nobleman.  Sai’s ethnicity is given as both Korean and Japanese, because she was born in Korea in 1911, while Korea was under Japanese occupation.
