LOOKING FOR SISTERS: Kim Sun Ok/Kim Soon Oak b. about 1940 youngest sibling of 4 girls seeks her family. Sun Ok was born in Seoul where family was living. Family appears to have been affluent and Sun Ok was raised, as a young child, in the Japanese fashion.Subsequently Sun Ok’s mother became ill and was taken by litter to a hospital in Seoul from which she never returned. Shortly afterwards the family suffered a reverse of fortunes and left Seoul for father’s home where he attempted to farm and was a landlord of other farmland. Sun Ok recalls that farming was very poor as the area was experiencing 7 years of drought causing family income to be much reduced. Sometime between the end of WWII and start of Korean War, guestimate about 1950, Sun Ok’s father while climbing a mountain to get berries for the family died. And was brought back to the family home by a friend who discovered him on the mountain.Sun Ok was taken to live with her married eldest sister who had married a Hong/Hwang in Yongsan/Seoul where he owned a charcoal brickett factory. The other two sisters were taken to other relatives. Sun Ok’s eldest sister had a son and daughter of her own but her husband had pledged previously that he would care for Sun Ok. Sadly he soon died and Sun Ok’s sister was unable to raise her own children and Sun Ok was give up for adoption to a woman living in Suwon who had been associated with the Queen. Sun Ok’s father was a Kangnung Kim and we guess that he died in Gungwon somewhere. If any of this sounds familiar please contact me. Sun Ok has other info to successfully identify her sisters that we are not presently disclosing. Sun Ok is in decreasing health and would like to meet her sisters or their families before she dies and hopefully learn where her father was buried. Sun OK also has what appears to be a “7 star birthmark” on the inside of her left arm.
