Shes not ugly but not amazing either. Why does she not do the interview in korean? Sounds more american

There was an interview with an Chinese actress, she’s 168cm, and in order for her to get casted in TV show she has to be 45kg or less. Also an actress/model working in korea is 171cm is 46kg. So... i am 160cm weighing 46kg. I cannot achieve that kind of body, so I am considered fat here. For girls of my heigh 160cm our ideal weight here is 40kg. Crazy.

Some Koreans are stupid, they only focused about the perfection of physical appearance not the intelligence of the contender that will represent their country. 🙄✌️

Cant believe there was a time when I thought looking like a skeleton was attractive😕 South Korea has crazy beauty standards. You have to be pale, thin, gotta have bigger eyes and surgery to be considered beautiful ...there goes the self-esteem of so many girls.

She has both inner and outer beauty, she is smart, emotional and speaks wisely, Korea should be proud of having such an amazing girl as Miss Korea! And to those who hate; she ain't fat bitches.

She’s beautiful, I don’t see anything controversial in her. Those South Korean beauty standards are stupid!! WTF?!

This delegate deserves to compete in the recently held Miss Universe. She represented her REAL and SINCERE self without all pretentions which proves the slogan of the organization: CONFIDENTLY BEAUTIFUL. I'm personally not her fan especially having witnessed her preliminary performance back in the competition days but hey, she broke all the social stigma towards "korean beauty" by being true to herself. She is a woman of big heart and strong mind. Props to you, BEAUTIFUL lady! :)

Elle가비 天 前
She's on other Korea TV Show Happy Together, where she talked about the same issue~ the different was, in this video, how she got interviewed made her look depressed while in Happy Together she looked so funny talked about the same issue. I guess it is a matter how you put perspective on things.

overweight??? 173 m 48 kg standard is totally insane and unhealthy
Frank Geisenburg
She is absolutely gorgeous. Her beauty is more than skin deep. And 5'8" 130 lbs is not even within hailing distance of fat. And I'm sure her father is as proud of her as he can be.

Another beauty pagent winner thinking she can change people perception of beauty well good luck with that. Plenty of beauty pagent winners said the same thing and tried the same thing before. One voice isn't louder then the entire multi-billion dollar voice of the tv/magazine/newspaper/and social media voice put together.

She is beautiful inside out and her parents are proud, lucky parents who raised a beautiful human... one has to keep their head high when others are just all about criticising and trying to bring you down... she really deserve the beauty pageant... she has written history and paved way for future generations... well done you...

I love her, she is sooo nice

She deserves the title. It’s usually the people who least except it that prove their worth. She is lovely and clearly cares about people and doing good in the world. I have respect for her! Much love from America! Xoxoxoxox

She is 100% beautiful inside and outside. An elegant and intelligent lady 🙏The beauty standards are restrictive and destructive 😔

Is it just me but some Koreans cannot wait for the question to be given. They just interrupt without letting the interviewer finished his questions🙄

She is really likable

All these insane beauty standards, yet Korea is not even known for winning Ms. Universe.

She's a waifu material

I wish you all the best of luck, I pray that you can affect some change. You are so far from fat it makes me ill hearing people say that about you. I take it Koreans aren't worried about eating disorders? Because that attitude is one fast track to eating disorder hell. I don't know about differing body types and structures between people of European descent and people of East Asian descent, but I was always taught that the average healthy weight was 100 lbs at 5 ft, and 5 lbs for every inch over 5 ft. So, at 5'8", 130 lbs is 10 lbs underweight.

maybe because she's the only famous person not plastic 😁

There's something seriously wrong with the Korean mentality of 'beauty'. If you want your women to live longer, healthier lives, stop putting them under the knife and stop body shaming them because your rotten minds cannot digest how beautiful they are.

I did not get to see the other girls but Soo Min Kim looks perfect to me ...😊👍 Soo Min Kim is beautiful in every way....🤗

This was an amazing story. That woman is gorgeous and yes, her looks are part of it. What made her super attractive though was her character. She’s a lovely and loving person. Plus, her willingness to try things is an inspiration for us to admire. Good on her for trying to make an impact while she has the title of Miss Korea. Very beautiful story. (:

Guys, be careful. This highlights the ugly, ugly superficial side of Korean entertainment and doesn't highlight any of the wonderful things about it and it's culture.

She is controversial because she’s 5’8” and weighs a normal weight of 130 pounds lol that’s considered skinny by American standards. It’s so crazy to see the culture differences lol in America she would be totally normal and non controversial at all. In America our standard of controversial would be something super crazy lol like she went to prison or something

Is Miss Korea represent for Miss Universe? If yes, she and Catriona Gray were batchmates. I wish they were friends because I see that they have a lot of similarities regarding social issues and advocacies.

Miss Korea or other country is not only about beauty, you know. It's not only about physical. It's 3B's: beauty, brain, behavior. And the judges were right to choose her
What a sweet young woman. Pure, authentic and her eyes are so lively. You can tell she is very intelligent. I can see why the judges picked her. Unlike the other girls she wasn’t necessarily there to win which gave her a huge advantage. She definitely deserves the name „miss Korea“. I love Korea and their culture but they need to calm tf down with them beauty standards Btw she is absolutely gorgeous and not fat. She kind of reminds me of Chungha

umm I didn't thought she was ugly. She's really pretty but from the beginning of the video when the interviewer said basically you're the most beautiful women in Korea I was like no cuz i have seen more beautiful than her but after listening to all of her journey I still wouldn't say she's the most beautiful women in korea. I would say she's really unique and she has a great sense of humor. She definitely deserve the title " Miss Korea" you're really pretty and you seems kind. You worked so hard on it keep it up and I wish you all the best. You're skinny too XD
