Let’s focus on the Korean-Brazilian – whose traditional name is Choi Song-e – because she is the one who came close to the top of the finals last week. Had this 23 year-old charmer been luckier enough (instead of being clustered as one of four 2nd Runners-Up), she would have gone down the country’s pageant history as the first mixed-race winner. Her looks, while of a stronger and more defined mold from the perenially similar-looking candidates in the batch, easily stands out with a relatively more global appeal. Unfortunately, there is still clear preference for a pure-bred (Yoo Ye-Bin) who can still be transformed by the organizers into a far more competitive representative. How about you, dear readers? What do you think of her? Isn’t Catharina a more fetching option?
