Lee Honey Still Plans to Showcase Korean Beauty

Lee Honey fell short of her goal to take home the 2007 Miss Universe crown, "but I'm still happy", she said. Lee returned home from Mexico on Friday, her impressions of ranking fourth place in the pageant still fresh.

Lee arrived at Incheon International Airport around 5:30 p.m., a "As One" sash draped across her shoulder. She was wearing a white shirt and designer jeans decorated with beads. She looked a bit tired but still managed a smile from beneath her oversized sunglasses for the many waiting cameras.

While Lee failed to win the show in Mexico City on May 29, her fourth place finish means she still managed to present the beauty of Korea to the world. "Even though no one believed in me or paid any attention when I was going to the competition, my goal was to become Miss Universe", she said. Ultimately she's still not certain if she succeeded or failed, she said. "But I did my best and I feel proud of myself for getting into the top five".

Lee returned to her home country with a red doll; a gift from the First Lady of Mexico. "I brought it back despite all the other stuff in my baggage because I heard that it can mark my husband's face if he cheats on me", she smiled coyly.

So when is Lee planning to make her debut in the entertainment industry? "My short term plan is to go back to school for the second semester", Lee said. "But my goal is clear. I want to present the beauty of Korea to the world, and I think that there are many ways to do that".
