Wow, you are truly a natural beauty inside out!! I feel the controversial shouldn't lie in your winning the crown but in the biased beauty standards imposed upon many Asian societies nowadays. I wish you success in your commitment to educate our younger generation about the link between beauty and healthy mind-body capacity.

OMG she’s very well spoken and eloquent. I can tell she’s smart. And now she has the perfect story for her Miss Universe advocacy. I can see her secure a place in the semifinal. Congrats Korea!

I feel like Korea might actually stand a chance at winning Miss Universe now because it has to be a balance of intelligence and beauty

her smile is so gorgeous. She has so much poise (graceful and elegant bearing in a person) it is easy to see how she won.

How tf can you be 5’8 and weigh 110 lbs and not be dying? I’m 5’9. When I used to wrestle I would cut to under 165 and it felt like the world was ending. I think obese people should be fat shamed because obesity is not healthy. But asian body standards are ridiculous.

I was so happy when she said almost 60 kg, finally someone people can relate to.

What the hell Korea, her weight is more than okay and healthy (and damn skinny if that's so important) for her height, plus she's so beautiful, intelligent, elegant… She's such a good face for your country, why are you giving her so much hate…

This video honestly makes me feel so much better about my weight. I’m 5”6 and about 119 pounds, but I’ve always been picked on by my family because I’m “chubby”. Though, by medical standards I’m totally healthy, I guess I’ve just become super insecure. 😭🤧

It’s a damn shame a whole society is angry that a winner is naturally healthy: no blatant face surgery, no blatant eyelid surgery, no liposuction, no blatant skin-bleaching. She’s skinny and pale by other Asian standards. This just shows that Korean society expects a woman to be super-humanly thin. She is so relatable! Good pick!!

Trust me on this sookim, those people saying you're "ugly" and "fat" are jealous, insecure losers. They hide behind their computers or phones or whisper behind your back, but they are petty, jealous and truly insecure. They can't be who you are and they inwardly, secretly hate that. It is so high school! And they need to grow up and get a life.

Anyway, all the best to you. You ARE beautiful, smart & classy and I know you will succeed throughout life.
