Reply just because says: August 2, 2019 at 1:49 pm What is wrong with these people Majority of Koreans are not skinny nor tall why are they criticising each others and making other people lives hell Reply jo cha says: August 2, 2019 at 3:36 pm It’s not just Korea though, it’s wherever a woman doesn’t fit the local beauty standards they are shamed. Woman around the world are taught their worth lies mostly within their physical beauty. It’s a world wide thing not just Korea. Korea likes super pale and super thin women. In the US you have pale women risking skin cancer to get tan, surgeries to get bigger butts and breasts, women are taught their worth lies in their outer beauty. In some parts of Africa, most of Asia and even the Caribbean women are bleaching their skin. We need to understand that a persons worth has nothing to do with what they look like.

Reply G Ggg says: August 4, 2019 at 2:31 pm Pretty hurts Reply Savia hamad says: August 4, 2019 at 6:29 pm To be honest…..she has a great personality and is good at English she also has a great body. But just because You are slim doesn’t mean you are pretty. She is a Tiny bit pretty but the other contestants were a 10000x prettier than her. So, no she just putts Korea in a bad picture when it comes to beauty. 2. Just because You are close to 60kg doesn’t mean You are fat. Some people have heavy bones. Everyone has different bone weight. BTW is weight so important in beauty industry, people look at You, they don’t make you wear a papir where it is written Your weight. If koreans Think like that, they are quite stupid😂😂😂 So stupid ITS EXTREMELY FUNNY😂😂😂OMG I AM DYING!! HAVE THEY EVEN BEEN AT SCHOOL? They should know that people is made of bones that weights diffrently on people. Some bones are heavy while some are lighter😂 Reply gee gee says: August 4, 2019 at 11:46 pm in Korea, beauty=skinny body type..

Reply alie hudson says: August 5, 2019 at 5:00 pm Such grace, such elegance. There's nothing controversial about her winning at all, she totally nailed it!!! Reply minh ty says: August 5, 2019 at 6:06 pm Even if the public think she’s not pretty enough in the public eye ( in which I think she’s so incredibly gorgeous), she is definitely smart enough. My god, international business major? That’s so incredible. Her intelligence makes her even more beautiful (and she is already so freaking beautiful).

Reply 연두 says: August 6, 2019 at 9:44 am Funny thing is, if you're like, really skinny here in Korea you're not allowed to say things like "You're not fat! You are beautiful just the way you are!" Because then your friends would be all "Easy for you to say" and if you don't say anything they will say that I have no worries and don't care about my friends and really, I love my friends but it's frustrating being a toothpick: tiny and skinny (I'm 5ft and 41kg) because I can't say anything and I also can't stay silent Reply April Mari Yambao says: August 6, 2019 at 11:11 am the standards of beauty in korea is the controversial not her actually. Reply Taehyung's BUTCHEEKS says: August 6, 2019 at 11:32 am Am I the only one who thought she sounds like Jessica (SNSD)? But seriously tho… She's gorgeous and I'm not even saying this to make her feel better about herself she's genuinely really gorgeous!

Reply Yaqi Li says: August 7, 2019 at 4:49 am The host has zero empathy when she is crying 🙁 Reply charlotte flower says: August 7, 2019 at 7:08 am Why did they put hate comments on her she’s so so pretty 🤩 Reply Yoanita Balya says: August 7, 2019 at 8:18 am I love her. She is literally beautiful inside and out. Reply Nomaid Brookyn says: August 7, 2019 at 4:47 pm My ideal girl is 5.2 to 6 weighing at least 55 to 65 Reply Nomaid Brookyn says: August 7, 2019 at 4:51 pm Korean beauty standard is irrational. males hate beard and female wants to be thin and big breasts. People here bathes in sun to become brown and koreans applies creams on their face to become white. I mean koreans are the most white race in whole asia. i have never seen a black born Korean that has been born through Korean parents. Reply Noseefood says: August 8, 2019 at 12:55 am if u r easily hurt, don't live in korea or use internet. Reply livingit808 says: August 8, 2019 at 1:45 am She's not only stunning, but humble.

Reply Odette Swan Princess says: August 8, 2019 at 10:14 am Korea has a lot of judgemental people. I feel sorry for Ms. Korea 2018. Reply Hey Lleina! says: August 8, 2019 at 12:00 pm this shows how racist koreans are. Reply Project KJ says: August 8, 2019 at 12:37 pm OMG, is this real? She absolutely gorgeous and not even close to being fat. Very well spoken, too with a beautiful love for family – a kind heart. Koreans should ALL be proud to have her represent their country. Reply tankyuwu says: August 9, 2019 at 2:04 am 173 cm and 58.9 kg is considered average BMI FOR A 13 YEAR OLD. And 173 cm and 47 kg is severely underweight in my country. Reply rever mak says: August 9, 2019 at 3:47 am Must be the girls that are hating on this because pretty sure we guys can all agree that she’s definitely out of this planet Reply Kim SeokJin says: August 9, 2019 at 3:55 am I'm skinny but I'm 64kg(140lbs). I'm only 15. But yet, people are always saying that I am too skinny or I'm a twig and…..I've been hearing that since elementary school. As I got older, being skinny was something I HATED about myself. Clothes didn't fit and everytime I looked in the mirror, I hated what I saw. But growing up, things remained the same and it got fustrating. I got comments from boys saying I was flat-chested and had no butt. I was only in 5th grade! Weight was never easily gained for me. I met a friend and she would praise me for being skinny when she was quite curvy. It infuriated me to hear her call herself "fat". Nobody is FAT. Everyones body is different. Fat is such a disrespectful term to define yourself as. I also have really bad chin acne ughh… middle school was brutal. I'd be given advice about my own face as IF I asked. People would be outright rude to me and judge me on my appearance. I really tried holding out. I tried being positive and optimistic. I encouraged others. I wanted to make myself a better person regardless of what others said about me. everyone wants happiness , nobody wants pain but you cant have a rainbow without a little rain Reply Tamarr Artis says: August 9, 2019 at 2:30 pm 110!!!! That's nothing in America! OMG, ASIA!!! Reply Natalia Wojtkowiak says: August 9, 2019 at 4:05 pm Wonderful woman in many aspects! <3 Reply Nathan Lee Music says: August 9, 2019 at 5:55 pm "Miss Korea is just something to have on your resume?!" Is it really THAT competitive in South Korea that you have to win the largest beauty pageant in the world to find employment? Reply ...... says: August 9, 2019 at 6:04 pm She's beautiful and not fat! Reply Mehh says: August 9, 2019 at 11:42 pm 5'8" tall and u gotta weigh 48 kg?!!! I mean i'm 5'5" and my weight is 47 kg and ppl call me too skinny and that i should eat some food! Reply bbrryyssoonnn bbrryyssoonnn says: August 10, 2019 at 12:47 am Her English is so goooooodddd! Reply seton yduts says: August 10, 2019 at 2:54 am Is it just me that she looks like lee suji from the ark Reply I HATE RACIST PEOPLE says: August 10, 2019 at 5:33 am My professor once told us that there's no such thing as ugly people, it's all in our standard, we people would always set standards for ourselves that we unconciously judge people around as. Being ugly cannot be physically seen but emotionally feel Reply Hoops & Boxing says: August 10, 2019 at 6:07 am Funny that the country where people generally looks like mongoloids have a very high standard in beauty and even accents Reply Anais Nguyen says: August 10, 2019 at 11:03 am Just the way she carries herself, her honesty, and consideration for her parents already makes her so beautiful. <3 Reply Parsa Rathernotsay says: August 10, 2019 at 4:04 pm She's such a sweet girl, to bad she has to deal with Korea's absurd beauty standards Reply Ramir Simple says: August 10, 2019 at 7:57 pm whats their calibre against you? they couldn't even speak fluent english unlike you. if another korean girl would she would surely need a translator in the international stage. Reply Lor Vang says: August 10, 2019 at 10:12 pm She’s not fat nor ugly. Korea need to change their expectations because she is gorgeous. ❤️ Reply Cheryl Yong says: August 10, 2019 at 11:36 pm Kudos to the judges too for being able to recognise a different standard of beauty in such a restrictive society Reply Freeze says: August 11, 2019 at 2:33 am She is so smart and well spoken. And ofcourse pretty. Why people said bad words? They dont even know how pageant works Reply Imperador Do Brasil Dom Pedro II, O Magnânimo says: August 11, 2019 at 3:14 am SHE'S STUNNING BRO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reply Narciso Jr. Sevilla says: August 11, 2019 at 12:41 pm These silly standards are the reasons why korea is never a beauty pageant powerhouse! Reply Narciso Jr. Sevilla says: August 11, 2019 at 12:41 pm Im rooting for her Reply xMortalBlade says: August 11, 2019 at 1:24 pm the problem with the korean beauty standard is that they seem to understand the difference between healthy skinny or unhealthy skinny,they just look at the numbers and not the imagekoreans also don't seem to understand that muscle weighs more than fatmeaning even if you look skinnier it doesn't mean you weigh less because of the amount of muscle you have grownkoreans need to question themselves:is looking like a skeleton and on the brink of death better than having a healthy athletic look but you weigh more than what you look likealso diet is not simply starving yourself to death,it's about the correct food you eat and the correct amount of nutrients (or even supplements if you want to take it more serious) Reply bryan rojas says: August 11, 2019 at 2:14 pm That's a crime … The heck Reply Cheryl L says: August 11, 2019 at 3:12 pm Korea is crazy, she’s BEAUTIFUL Reply Emiel Vanwynsberghe says: August 11, 2019 at 8:25 pm For real 50kg means chubby i weight 70kg and im considerd underweight Reply edmondYJ says: August 12, 2019 at 6:57 am Damn her English is superior than 99% people I have met in my 20yr lifespan.

Reply lunatic26tan says: August 12, 2019 at 5:40 pm Battle of the cyborgs. Reply Oecy Ok says: August 12, 2019 at 6:26 pm Yes, she is the most beautiful woman in Korea. She is the most beautiful because she isn't fake. People that have done plastic surgery have absolutely no rights to tell a person that they are prettier. She looks natural unlike those kpop fakes. Reply bpxv says: August 13, 2019 at 2:11 am Wow that's so sad when you regret joining the pageant! I swear people are so harsh and evil with words! 😡 The saddest thing is when you have to watch your parents see those negative comments 😭 Reply Sanford Entertainment says: August 13, 2019 at 2:17 am I wish she get in to atleast top 5 or top 3 in Miss U to slap every korean who bullied and calling her fat Reply ilooklike panda says: August 13, 2019 at 4:47 am She is not fat!

Reply Savleen Kaur says: August 13, 2019 at 7:25 am 130 is literally considered skinny in America, I don’t understand why Korean standards are evoking these girls to look like skeletons. Reply Ecca Anderson says: August 13, 2019 at 2:54 pm If Korean ppl say this lady is ugly and fat, what will they say if they see me? monster? dinousaur? whale? come on korean ppl, reduce your habits about body shaming… it's very RUDE ..😐 Reply faneyysss_matter says: August 13, 2019 at 6:21 pm Her authenticity and organic beauty inside and out made her outstanding!
