[TALK OF THE TOWN]Movie planned about the NFL’s Hines Ward, his mom and their story
Behind every successful man is his mother.
Hines Ward, the Korean-American NFL player for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and his mom, Kim Young-hee, have given the green light to a movie about their life.
Without Kim’s support, few believe Ward would have become the sports star he is today. To earn a living, Kim had to work 16 hours a day working as a grocery clerk and maid.
The film is provisionally called “My Mother.” CY Film said on Monday that the two gave permission for the film to be made last summer. By Lee Eun-joo
