Meet Miss Universe Korea 2023 Kim So-yoon

Kim So-yoon was crowned Miss Universe Korea 2023 in a national competition that took place last August 27 in Seoul.

The 28-year-old beauty from Gyeongnam succeeded last year's titleholder Hanna Kim and will represent Korea at the 72 Miss Universe (Miss Universe 2023) in El Salvador this November.

Over 30 contestants took part in this year's glittering event which was hosted at the Walkerhill Hotels & Resorts.

Korea has yet to win the Miss Universe title since joining the prestigious pageant for the first time in 1954. Its highest achievement so far was first runner-up in 1988 with Jang Yoon-jeong.

The country's last placement was third runner-up in 2007 with Honey Lee.
