The winner of “2011 Miss Korea Pageant,” Lee Sung Hae, has become an instant hot topic on Korean Web after her profile and pictures got revealed. She won the contest on August 3rd beating out 53 other contestants.
Born in 1988, Lee Sung Hae currently majors in fashion design at the Parsons School of Design in New York. An aspiring CEO of a fashion company, Lee Sung Hae is 170 cm (5’7”) tall with a glamorous bodyline boasting a 35/25/35 figure. She’s also a skilled Korean traditional dancer, it was reported.
On Wednesday’s show, Lee Sung Hae said, “I respect fashion designer Vera Wang the most. I really liked the goddess-themed dress from this pageant. Since I’m studying fashion design, I would like to one day design a dress using Hanbok (traditional Korean dress).”
She continued, “I learned a lot through a variety of activities overseas, so I’m sure I’ll be competitive enough to promote Korea globally. I’ll do my best to spread Korea’s beauty around the world in the coming year.”
Most Miss Korea winners go on to pursue careers in the entertainment or fashion industry, so one day we might be able to see Lee Sung Hae on TV too. Here’s some more photos of her from Wednesday’s beauty pageant. It sure looks like she has the smarts and the looks!
