The first regional preliminaries of Miss Korea will take place on May 30, 2017 at the Chaos, City of Dreams Manila.
The Philippines was chosen as the first Southeast Asian country to hold a regional preliminary round for Korea’s most prestigious beauty pageant.
Miss Korea Philippines was announced last March, inviting female South Korean and Korean-Filipino residents in the Philippines to submit application between April 1 and 30. The selected participants will then compete it on May 30 to join the 2017 Miss Korea pageant.
The organizers aim to foster improved relationship between South Korea and the Philippines through the competition by becoming a medium of cultural exchange. It is also aimed to encourage change in prejudices and perceptions about the Philippines’ safety by promoting its environment and heart-warming people.
Miss Korea Philippines is presented by City of Dreams and BDO-SM, and is organized by ShowBT Philippines.
