Miss Korea’s by the years, what happened?!?

From Lee Honey in 2006 to Lee Ji Sun in 2007 to NaRi in 2008 – what happened??

When 2008 Miss Korea was born on 6th August, I’m not the only one complaining, loads of netizens are puzzled and quite taken back by this. 22-year-old undergrad NaRi is also the 31st Miss Seoul.

Looking at the list of other contestants this year (51 of them all together), NaRi, at number 31, didn’t seem to stand out from the other girls, as the other girls are all so pretty…

Let’s take a look at the pictures from Honey Lee to Lee Ji Sun to NaRi at the pageants..

I used to sit with my dad and watch beauty pageants and I will start pinpointing which girls are pretty and which are not. And my dad will always remind me that they are not just looking at beauty but also wisdom and representativity at pageants.

But at this rate, if I am a Korean, I don’t know if I’d want NaRi to represent Korea at Miss Universe. Just my 5-cents.

I liked Honey Lee the best, and I am not trying to take away any credits from NaRi at all. She looks so sweet here. I have half the doubts about the make-up artiste to NaRi during the pageant, she looked so different from her normal looks.

I’m still looking for other videos to the pageant to see the Q&A section for NaRi. For now, here’s one of the videos I found..

  1. Hey, listen.
    At first sight I thought that Nari is unpretty, too.
    But thinking of it again …
    Look at Lee Honey. Seeing her for the first time I was absolutely sure that she was the most beautiful woman ever on earth. But actually everything issurgery and make up. If you see her real face, you get shocked …

  2. at first…i thought she looked mexican in the video.
    Her responses to the questions weren’t that…great compared to other Miss Koreans.
    seriously…i miss lee honey…she should have won Miss Universe in 2007!!!! 😡

  3. Hey, if u want to watch the Question and Answer Round go to

    you can watch the Q&A but I can’t translate it cuz I m not Korean if u are than can u translate it in the comment thanx and I really want pupils to watch it so they won’t say that she doesn’t deserve it. I think the reason Na Ri won was cuz she got more confident n gud answer ..

  4. […] poses. No more 1980’s feel. The brochure photos of the upcoming Miss Universe for Miss Korea 2008 NaRi will make Koreans feel at least a little prouder of showing their native […]

  6. I think her swimsuit is sooo FUGLIY.

  7. nari has ugly legs = =;
    the first time i saw her.. i thought she was some 30 year old dude.. = =;

  8. Honestly, I think all 3 look pretty bad… NOT UGLY for norma standards, but they represent S. Korea… weren’t there any other pretty girls who lie better?

  9. OMG!!!

    I think u r kidding me!!!
    How Nari is very old in violet swimming suit?
    I can’t believe that she’s 22!!!!!

    And how about her body? I know everyone’s imperfect but…this is a peageant, right?
    I don’t know Korean laguage that much so I won’t judge her from the answer……

    But I’m quite shock and disappoint for her……
