Pageant drama!

Ooh, more Miss Korea drama. (There’s always drama surrounding a Miss Korea pageant, isn’t there? Or, I suppose, any pageant.)

First there was all that shrewish chatter that winner Na Ri wasn’t pretty enough. Now, Kim Hee-kyung, one of the recent finalists (Miss Korea mi, or 미), is facing some swift and harsh criticism now that nude photos of her have surfaced. There’s a mobile-content photo spread and an “adult music video” apparently shot in 2006 in Malaysia, following her debut as a model. (According to one article, she even gave an interview after the shoot, where she said, “My body is a God-given blessing. My body is so beautiful, I want to show it off to others, which is why I’ve done the nude shots.”)

The pageant sponsors said they were aware she had some photos but were under the impression they were “merely modeling” pictures. They defended their own misconception, asking, “Do you think we would have been okay with them if we’d heard they were nudes?” It is expected that the investigation into the nude photo charge will conclude and be revealed next week. Kim Hee-kyung is unavailable for comment.

It’s possible she’ll be stripped of her tiara, like last year’s Kim Joo-yeon (2007 Miss Korea mi). This incident doesn’t seem nearly as sensational as that “abortion scandal,” but the public mud-slinging will always be a constant. (Currently, Kim Joo-yeon is studying in New York; her image has been erased from the official Miss Korea website.)

Normally, I might feel inclined to cut the girl some slack. However, how foolish must you be in this age to take a bunch of nude photos, lie about it for an event televised on a national scale, and expect not to get caught?

I found Na Ri is quite okay, she looks a bit old but she is quite pretty, not shockingly pretty but pretty enough to be Miss Korea.

And what the heck is that nude picture? Looks like cheap slut picture to me, and that girl is not pretty, why would she be crowned?

Seriously, cut her some slack, that picture is ugly.

Same scandal with the current Miss Universe. Some nude pictures of her "modeling" days were surfaced recently. The only difference is that she was supposedly 15 at the time. Underage nudity?? That doesn't sound right.

I find these beauty pageant rules laughable. It's all about physical beauty in the end and they have the girls wear bikinis and revealing gowns but then then they get all uptight about nude pictures.
I actually like that picture of Kim hee kyung, It's funny! Great sense of humor.

Seriously why do people who think they are pretty do these kind of things to themselves? If your body is so beautiful the least you can do is respect it.

Oh well, I don't dwell too much into pageants anyway.

how is it that the netizens are so much more resourceful than the pagent organizers? i'm sure the pagent organizers could have unearthed something like this easily enough, especially if the model/contestant wasn't shy about it when she posed nude. maybe the organizers plant these skanky girls for publicity! (i would not put it past TRUMP to do something like that)

It's so superficial. I watched the Miss Universe and some of the outfits the girls wore were barely passable. I mean, they covered you but were skin-tight and almost see-through. And they have girls parade around smiling in swimsuits and have "sexy photoshoots".

Seriously, at least taking naked pictures or doing something similar doesn't tinge with so much hypocrisy. (Then again, this girl isn't the best example of that considering she lied about them.) Internet nowadays is scary. Don't be in the public eye unless you've got nothing to hide or they're going to bite you back.

My cousin was miss galleria which was 4th place in the miss korea pagent in 2001 . it was a pretty cool gig for 4th place. She was the model for the Galleria Department store and they let her keep all the make up that she used in photoshoots and she got paid for a year and she was featured in a music video.
