Born and raised in Pyongyang, Ki-ok spent time in prison as a young woman because of her involvement in anti-colonial protests. She eventually fled Japanese controlled Korea and moved to China. With the approval of the Korean Provisional Government, Ki-ok entered the Republic of China Air Force School in 1923 and graduated in 1925. She was the first Korean women to hold a pilot license.
Ki-ok served in the Chinese Air Force until 1945, eventually reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Ki-ok then returned to Korea where she helped found the Republic of Korea Air Force. During the Korean War, she served in South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense before retiring from public service.
Gotta rock the Korean pride.

Can you do the two step?
A woman is perfectly justified in believing the worst about you.
Not that she has to justify anything to you.
But it is your responsibility to prove that you are not a threat. It is your job to be unthreatening.
Women are taught, and with good reason, to always use…
