Winner of Miss Asia Pacific World, Miss Myanmar, had become involved in scandal when she made a statement claiming she was forced to perform sexual favors after returning to Korea to finalize a contract. Her accusations were proven to be true by an internal investigation by pageant organizers.
Article from Kukmin Ilbo:
It was true that Miss Myanmar was forced to perform sexual favors, according to an internal investigation by pageant organizers.
May Myat Noe who was elected Miss Asia Pacific World in in Seoul returned to Myanmar with her crown alleging that she was forced to have plastic surgery and to perform sexual favors. It has been found that her claims were in fact true.
According to the organizers, May, who won Miss Asia Pacific World in the spring, visited Korea again in August to finalize a contract with N Management. She had received offers including record production with a vocal training, from the company.
But from her first day back in Korea, Choi told her while at a hotel in Seoul that, “Since you don’t have any money, you should entertain the executives,” and urged her to perform sexual favors. Choi recently confessed the truth to the organizers who had begun to take legal action. This information was also confirmed by May.
The investigation showed that Choi had been making contracts with beauty pageant participants, international media, and more, without even maintaining an office. Choi was arrested on suspicion of fraud for pocketing investments, and was released on probation.
The organizers concerned said that, “To prevent tarnishing the image of the organizers internationally and prevent any further damage, we will soon report Choi to the police.”
Last year after May disappeared with the crown, valued at 2 billion won, she held a press conference in Myanmar and alleged that the organizers forced her to have plastic surgery and perform sexual favors.
The organizers of this competition had accused May and her mother, who is working as her manager, of spreading false information and slander, claiming damages of 10 billion won.
Comments from Daum:
This is such an embarrassment for the country – old habits die hard. The government should punish all the people concerned and sincerely apologize…
Korean old men behaving indecently… They only know their rights and how they should be treated but don’t care about anyone else. Assholes..
A few idiots are making our country look idiotic.
Who is the executive who was supposed to be entertained? Was it Bang? It hasn’t been long since the Jang Jayeon scandal, could it be possible? [*Bang could refer to either Bang Sang-hoon, CEO of The Cholsun Ilbo, or Bang Myeonghoon. Both were accused of being one of those receiving sexual favors from a coerced young actress, Jang Jayeon. She later committed suicide.]
Choi’s just some disgusting pimp. Successful Korean men wanna to stick their dicks anywhere they please. They are monsters, not human beings.
I vote for Miss Myanmar…This is a national disgrace..
Shouldn’t they execute an asshole like that?
Read the old comments. People are swearing at this innocent girl from Myanmar. Racism like Ferguson in the U.S. is way better than anything in Korea. In Korea there are so much racism against Southeast Asians. Korea, world’s best in racial discrimination. Korea, the courteous land of the East. Korea, the land of beautiful scenery.
The organizers haven’t done anything right. Now I’m curious how they will treat May.
All Koreans are performing sexual favours.. The dirty hooker Republic, hooray!~
I knew she was telling the truth, ke ke. Where are all the people who treated her like a liar when she had an interview? Among the people who wanted sexual favors, there gotta be some with families. Dirty bastards.
Who are the executives asking for sexual favos? This is a national disgrace.
Humiliation on a global scale, tsk tsk.
Now it’s time for May to accuse the organizers of slander and claim for damages.
Korean people are doing all kinds of things.. How has the country come to this? I can’t show my face to foreigners, I’m too ashamed. Politics, economy, culture, and society… there isn’t anything right in this country.
