In the midst of current political/economic situation between Korea and Japan, none of Miss Korea winners are willing to participate this year's Miss International. So there will be no representative from Korea this year.

Korea is already been in the clapping streak at Miss International since 2011 while at Miss Earth they performed very well with 4 placements in 2010s decade, one of them won Miss Earth Fire.

I’m not pleased at how Japan has handled the whole comfort women issue at all (in denial for decades and refusing to initiate action until different countries started making demands), but Korea DID agree to the terms of their treaty. It’s totally Korea’s fault that they’re reneging on their commitment to uphold this agreement and now they’re in this feuding mess.

Let's give them a month or two. Maybe they'll change their mind. As of the moment, the blood of the Koreans are boiling beyond boiling point.

I do hope they calm down and start addressing the issue rationally.

Regardless, it’ll be sad missing Korea’s participation at MI due to politics.
