January 16, 1968, Kim Po Airport, Seoul, Korea

Mrs. Kim, Sean Kim, (then) Master Kim Soo

Last photo in Korea before he got on the plane to the United States.

Grandmaster remembers this time as both terrible and wonderful; leaving his young wife and child behind, with only $100 in his pocket, launching out into the unknown to start an entirely new life. Within a year his wife and child would join him in Houston.

Grandmaster says that he still has the coat and shoes he's wearing in the picture; says the coat is still in good shape, didn't volunteer any information about the shoes.

Sean Kim is now Master Kim.
