The driver, a prominent filmmaker, took her in and mentored her into an acting career, capitalizing on her natural beauty. By age nineteen, Park Soong Nan was the brightest star of Korean cinema, an Asian Elizabeth Taylor. They called her "The Queen of Tears."Many years later her three grown children and their families are settled in Hawaii and she, the matriarch, comes to visit.
