Panelist in Korea" (salaried; she is from Seoul, Korea; television has been on the air in Korea only since 1956 and is owned by the government and run as a non-profit organization; the Korean version of WML has been on the air since 1957; Korea has only one television station at the present time; Keun Oh Kim, or Miss Kim as John and the panel called her, is also a Captain in the Korean Air Force Reserves; her English speaking ability was limited and she often looked to John for support; she was dressed in a traditional Asian kimono)

      "IGAS" NOTE: Miss Keun Oh Kim briefly appeared on the February 18, 1963 episode of "I've Got a Secret." The host was Henry Morgan, who was substituting for the regular host, Garry Moore. The panel consisted of Betsy Palmer, Gretchen Wyler, Dorothy Loudon and Faye Emerson. Garry Moore's longtime sidekick and announcer Durward Kirby was the celebrity guest. Keun Oh Kim's "WML?" connection was not mentioned on "IGAS." Miss Kim was not a contestant on "IGAS," but she was "connected" to one of the contestant's secrets. One game featured Barbara Kiernan of Andover, MA, who was the vice-president of "The Ninety-Nines," the international women pilots association which was founded in 1929. Barbara's "IGAS" secret was: "We bought an airplane with trading stamps." As we learned after the game, the American members of her group bought an airplane with three million Green Stamps. The airplane was given to their foreign member, Captain Keun Oh Kim, who was the only female pilot in Korea. (Captain Keun Oh Kim became a "Ninety-Nines" member when she went to college in the United States.) Henry Morgan held up a photo of the plane, which was a small Piper PA-22-108 Colt. (The registration number, N5088Z, was painted on the side of the plane and was visible in the photo.) With this airplane, Keun Oh Kim would then be able to teach other women in Korea how to pilot an aircraft. Keun Oh Kim was seated in the "IGAS" audience and stood up to take a bow. She was dressed in her traditional Asian kimono. - Suzanne (2008)

      "TTTT" NOTE: Miss Keun Oh Kim also appeared on another Goodson-Todman game show when she was the featured contestant in the third game of the January 6, 1959 edition of "To Tell the Truth" with host Bud Collyer and the panel of Polly Bergen, Ralph Bellamy, Kitty Carlisle and Hy Gardner.

      Game 1: Miss Pat McGee (b. 8/23/1945) - "Demonstrates Skateboards" (salaried; pretty blond; she is employed by and demonstrates a skateboard made by Vita-Pakt Citrus Company of Covina, California, and when John said he was confused by this, and asked Pat "did this develop from the boxes they pack oranges in?" Pat chuckled and explained that the company had branched out into other fields; Arlene began the questioning and identified Pat's profession all by herself, but John flipped all the cards anyway; John said that Pat was on the cover of Life magazine this week, shown standing on her hands on a skateboard; Pat said that prior to skateboarding, she surfed for 7 years, but explained to John that this was not in preparation for skateboarding and went on to say that skiers hone their skills on skateboards; she is currently in New York demonstrating her athletic skills at Macy's department store; from San Diego, California)

      It is no longer there, but a nine-minute segment of this episode used to be on YouTube.com with the following description: 1965 Skateboard Champion Patti McGee on the WHAT'S MY LINE?

Mr. Hull replied that he operated a different kind of crusher, a portable one; from Ottumwa, Iowa)

      Game 3: Liza Minnelli (b. 3/12/1946) (as Mystery Guest) Liza is guessed very quickly. Arlene mentions that they were sure she would be on last week and then Bennett says almost disdainfully, "And what do we get? Soupy Sales!"

      Game 4: Miss Yoshiko Yatsuwe or Yatsue (phonetic approximation) - "Television News Reporter" (salaried; Japanese girl; she signed her name in Japanese characters; Bennett determines that she appears on television, but asks if she is part of the Japanese WML program, which gets a "no" when the game is called for time; John describes her as the "Walter Cronkite of Japan"; from Tokyo, Japan)
