Biography CHOI Anita
February 7, 1971 in a Korean family of a girl. Mom decided to call her Anita, in honor of the French revolutionaries Annette Riviere. But in the Soviet registry office refused to register the strange name. They said that it gives inostranschinoy and recorded a daughter Anya. Mother Anita chemist by education, has a daughter without a father, following Korean traditions.
From an early age, Anita made it clear: it - Korean, and therefore not the same as all. "In kindergarten and school, I called the Chukchi. School, where she studied Anita, was special, and visited her in the most privileged children of parents. And since the family of Anita neither wealth nor post did not stand out, then mark Anita received not the highest. There were some teachers who just said: "She can not know the Russian language is better than three. It's genetics ". Real friends, the girl was very little. And to prove that nationality - not important, Anita wanted to participate in all: the Pioneers, the Komsomol (which later came to work in the Komsomol Central Committee). I tried to play the violin: first in the music school, but the ability of a six-year violinist so than average, that a year later she was transferred to the Central, while the most prestigious in the country, school. After a fanatical old professor, Beat her in the classroom on her hands, broke his hand a little Anita, girls have long lost the desire to touch the instrument.
Anita began to study painting, was engaged in horseback riding and ballroom dancing. However, already becoming a world-class dancer, she was forced to leave the ballroom dancing. The reason turned out to be banal to the offensive: the former partner has grown, but the new find, she was not able. Nobody wanted to be paired with a baby, whose round face and slanting eyes. "My whole life as a young man to 19 years, was the emergence of itself under the slogan:" I do not Chukchi, I - a man! "As an adult, I beat myself in this complex. Although, by her own admission, even now at the stage it has to face the "national question". One thing when the shooting said: "Open your eyes. They can not see! "But it's quite another when you come out to speak and hear:" Look, Chukchi gone! "
In the early 90's in the capital was established Moscow Korean Association. Anita then was 19. She went there, intending to study their native Korean language. And, as they say, they met their fate. Sergei Tsoi was thirty with a little, he worked in the Moscow City Hall and also came to language courses. Anita, he seemed very adult and solid. "Our families met. We met seven times and got married, because, as is required by the Koreans, the parents said to themselves, "yes."
Later, after living with Sergei for a while, Anita realized that she was incredibly lucky. Sergei was stubborn and determined to work, an excellent husband and an exceptional person. In a relatively short time he made a career, becoming chief of the press service of Moscow Mayor. Anita also was brought up in the Korean tradition, always knew that a woman should "whisper" in front of a man. Prepare, wash, create a house cosiness and cleanliness "Korean man decides on her own. I have never interfered in the affairs of his office, but felt that the home front - my primary care. Now, when I work, I understand - it means so much, when someone will meet, feed, cater. But until now, much as I was busy, all the home work is done by myself, with his hands. No employed person does not make you a house as you yourself. I believe that there is a positive energy. When my husband eats food prepared exactly hands of his wife, or wearing ironed her shirt, then he feels differently ". Later a son was born - Sergei.
But Anita wanted to sing. She sang it always: at home, in the narrow circle of friends. She sang in a camp: "speaker" international star "Anita Kim (maiden name)!". However, mother Anita never particularly did not want his daughter was an actress.
So first she received a future teacher education, then graduated from the law faculty of Moscow State University, and only then - pop Faculty GITIS.
Songs were born one after another. Year of work in the children's home - appeared song "Mama". During the "Great October" system under seizing control of a human life, with anyone especially not stand on ceremony. Mother Anita's - Yuen Eloise Sanhymovna - a Ph.D. and worked in the same institute nuclear scientists, where he worked as Andrei Sakharov. It so happened that, when the last known persecution began, a small Korean woman was the only woman-minded, which is not acted on the side of those who hunted. As a particularly unruly, it put away in a psychiatric hospital. "You know the movie" One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest "? That all these horrors as if embodied in the life of my mother". Years passed. Sakharov was acquitted, her mother released. But her health has been undermined. Mother Anita became an invalid.
Passion Viktor Tsoi, who is close and because its, Korean, - and in his honor written the song "Flight" ... "I made this song in his manner, style and even sang at the beginning of his voice" - recalls the singer.
In the end, Anita decided to revolution. The first stage - to get money to record a disc. Do not lend her husband, who may not like her idea, and make the most. So she went to Korea for allegedly newly discovered relatives there, saying nothing about the true purpose Sergei trip. They scored the goods, as did many of the "shuttle", and returned to Moscow, went ... the market in the Luzhniki trade. It looked so. At 4 am, Anita got up and his girlfriend rushed to the market, at 7 am back, my husband was preparing breakfast, accompanied him to work and - again in the Luzhniki Stadium. This lasted for about two weeks, until one morning, Sergei did not meet her at the door. Had to explain. My husband gave good, but with one condition: that at the household did not affect her trip.
Anita took the child to a nanny - a former classmate of the Pedagogical Institute, and myself with a vengeance to her work. Traded with the girlfriend about a year, then opened a coffee shop chain "fast food". After organized center "MeteoTV, where Anita worked as Deputy Director General. To do everything herself. Husband did not interfere in the affairs. Finally, the initial capital has been accumulated. Seeing on TV-6 advertising studio "Union", which invited the cooperation of young performers, Anita went there.
The Studio incredulously perceived low fatty (86 lbs) in a business suit and with a mobile phone in the hands. Anita emptied on the table mountain of cassettes with recordings of three hundred songs, specially selected for this case. After listening to the material, experts have estimated it as follows: "The project unprofitable. Songs are good, but ... you yourself do not come ". And then Anita laid out his trump card: do not want so, let's for the money. But when she called the sum, in the studio went snicker. She explained that this money can be written a little more than half of the disk. Then politely advised to go home. "I became depressed. It was so hurt that the money earned was not enough. Yes, and listening to insults! I do not want to do ". But after a while, when it came to its senses and decided to try his luck in another studio, got a call from the "Union". "We changed your mind. Let's try. But you must meet certain conditions. First of all - lose weight. "
As a result, six months, Anita dropped 30 kilograms. And then, when already the first, thousands of times and rechecked, negotiated the contract should be signed, the studio suddenly find out that Anita's husband takes a high position. "They have such DeRoo back!" I was offered yet to sign a contract and for a long time did not go to the link. For me, this meant the complete collapse. Because I had so long been preparing for this event! And then I decided to ask her husband. "Petrovich, go and talk to them, tell them that if the husband - a high official, is not so bad". - "Why are not afraid?" I do not want you to sing ". Sergei Petrovich, of course, was angry: his wife behind him persistently sought its. "Then we had a very serious talk. And I said: "You know, Serge, anyway, I'll be there. Why should I deceive you? "
Most important - her husband realized. Talked with soyuzovtsami ", knowing full well what is. Near the work all the time in the limelight, and then there was the wife enters the scene, on public display. "Family - it is always the rear. When the second half, too, was called to order, we maximize a substitute in jeopardy.
Taking the commitment to lose weight, she has tried sea of drugs, different systems of training and exercises. Then he realized that the pills for weight loss - is nonsense. Lose it helped only self-restraint and endurance, plus sports, meditation and acupuncture.
All were counted: and a comparison with Viktor Tsoi, and gossip in the corridors, and the desire of some show-business people to withdraw more money from the wife of a famous person. But have decided to fight to the end. During the year of Anita managed to record a long-awaited disc. Released its small circulation, but sold it immediately. Knowing that without a special education not go away, Anita came to a commercial office in Rossiyskuyu Academy of Dramatic Art. "Skip, of course, a lot of classes, but with practice, no problem.
