Honey Lee Places 4th at Miss Universe Pageant
Miss Korea Honey Lee was named the third runner-up at the 2007 Miss Universe Pageant held in Mexico City, Mexico. She is only the second Korean to reach the final five after Jang Yoon-jeong was the first runner-up 19 years ago at the 1988 Miss Universe Pageant held in Seoul.
The Miss Universe title went to Miss Japan Riyo Mori. Miss Brazil and Miss Venezuela won second and third place, respectively, while Miss USA placed fifth.
Lee won the highest score of 94.58 points out of 77 entrants in a preliminary judging hosted by Global Beauties, a sponsor of the 2007 Miss Universe. Lee's spot among the top five was predicted by many when she received the fifth and fourth highest score in the swimsuit competition and photogenic category, respectively.
