Miss Korea topped the popularity contest among 77 contestants in the 2007 Miss Universe pageant. Global Beauties (GB), an online magazine for international pageants, picked Miss Korea Lee Honey as the most popular beauty on Friday.

Venezuela representative Ly Jonaitis and Doukissa Nomikou from Greece won the second and third place, respectively.

A day earlier, Lee was selected as ``The Face of the Universe Award’’ winner. The Web site says that Lee has a perfect complexion and a smile that can conquer the Universe and beyond.

Also, Lee won the GB Best National Costume Award on Wednesday. The award is given to the delegate who presented the most beautiful and creative costume.

Although the awards by GB do not influence the result of the Miss Universe competition, Lee’s achievement shows that her beauty is recognized worldwide.

The final winner of the 2007 Miss Universe pageant will be announced at the National Auditorium in Mexico City on Monday.
