Miss Korea is an annual televised pageant that has searched for the ideal candidate to serve as South Korea's representative in various global beauty pageants, such as the Miss Earth, Miss International, and Miss Universe competitions, for over half a century. Every year, since 1957, it has narrowed the potential winners to fifty women, with only seven making it to the final round. While the first place contestant is declared Miss Korea and moves on to the Miss Universe pageant, one of the women who came in second or third would go on to compete in either the Miss International or Miss Earth pageants. Until 2010, a newly-crowned Miss Korea would be the one to decide which of the women below her would go on to the other major pageants. However, the new policy results in the 2nd runner up going on to represent South Korea in Miss International, while the 1st runner up would go on to Miss World.
