	“My brother directed me in a play while I was learning to play the violin,” 
Rhee told CNN Local Edition News Anchor Tracy Young in a record five minute 
news segment. “So then I got bitten by two bugs, music and acting.”  

	Rhee, who is also a classically trained accomplished violinist, a certified 
hypnotherapist, Microsoft Systems Engineer and a black belt in the Martial Arts and 
has also written a screen play entitled, “Hal.” The screenplay is about an old jazz pianist, 
who’s suffering from Alzheimer’s in a nursing home. “My mother passed away a year and 
a half ago from the disease, and I know there are a lot of actors’ parents who are currently 
suffering from Alzheimer’s,” explained Rhee, who is currently shopping her movie script. 

	When asked has it been easy to succeed in Hollywood? She responded this way, 
“Very, very difficult. The industry concentrates on the things I don’t do,” explained Rhee.
 “For example, speaking English without an accent. They don’t care about what I can do as 
an artist like playing the violin, martial arts and acting. These skills are all secondary. 
The first thing  they ask is, ‘do you have an America or Asian accent?’” she said.  Rhee is of Korean descent.
