By  | 

Join us as we cheer on for her in the coming big competition!

Jenny Kim, the 1st runner up for the 2015 Miss World Korea, will be participating in the 65th Miss Universe pageant. It will be held in the Philippines in January 2017.

Kim moved to Indonesia when she was only one year old with her family, and has attended an international school in Jakarta. She is capable of speaking English and Indonesian fluently.

Due to her international background, she shared with Hellokpop that one of her biggest strengths is embracing multiculturalism. Her parents taught her to be the Korean person who she is, and by attending an international school, she was able to experience diverse cultural backgrounds and learned to embrace them as part of her identity.


Kim is currently double majoring in International Office Administration and English Language and Literature at Ewha Womans University.

The 23-year-old beauty will be competing at the next Miss Universe pageant against 90 beautiful women from other countries around the world.

She stated, “Real beauty is making beautiful change.”

Kim also expressed her desire to use her strengths to represent a confident Korean woman in the international beauty pageant.

Miss Universe is traditionally entered by Miss World Korea’s Jin (winner). However after 60 years of the upheld tradition, Kim, the 1st runner up at the 2015 Miss World Korea, will be representing South Korea at the Miss Universe pageant.

Hellokpop wishes her the best of luck as she prepares to compete in the 2016 Miss Universe.
