Back in June 1987, I was contracted to provide Master of Ceremony (MC) services for the Eighth Army Officer’s Club Renovation celebration. The club had all new furnishings and decorations intended to improve the ‘Quality of Life’ for members of the club, their dependents and their guests. Door prize drawings were held every 30 minutes. The event was held Friday evening for 3 hours and again on Saturday for 5 hours. On Friday and Saturday we had the Korean version of the ‘Grand Ole Opry’ show lead by Mr. Cho, Young Gil and his band: Shin, Mi Suk (singer); Pak, Yong Kook, (Comedian/rhythm guitar); Kim, Won bae (Lead guitar); Pyo, Hyun Chul (Bass); Pae, Yong Ku (Drums); and Yi, Kyung Ho (Fiddler). I think they called him ‘Smiley’ because he never smiled). This was a grand event and we still had the 8th Army Officer’s Club Pool outside. The site where the pool was, is now and has been since 1990 a parking lot for the patrons of the Dragon Hill Lodge. If anyone has a photo of the 8A Off Club during the late 80s to share, please post here on the Yongsan Legacy website.
