Although the list of celebrities who love BLACKPINK seems to be getting longer, another person has been added to that list, and it is none other than a global beauty queen and current Miss World Korea!
Tara Hong recently won the title of Miss World Korea 202 in Seoul. The 23-year-old beauty will represent the nation at the 70th Miss World contest held in December in Puerto Rico. Yet, alongside possessing the grace, beauty, and personality to win the competition, it also seems as if she is a keen K-Pop fan, and particularly a fan of BLACKPINK!
In an interview after winning the title, Tara Hong, who was born and raised in the US, grew up watching K-Dramas and listened to a lot of K-Pop growing up, including the likes of TVXQ and Girls’ Generation.
Yet, for her, it is BLACKPINK who has caught her attention and provided a source of inspiration. In particular, she explained, “Whenever I sing BLACKPINK songs, I feel like the world is mine.” With the catchy and inspiring lyrics, it is easy to see why she picked them as a group she loves to listen to.
If that wasn’t enough, in the article, Tara named some of her inspirations and idols. Alongside veteran actress Go Hyun Jung, Tara chose another person, and it was none other than BLACKPINK’s Rosé!
As two people born in other countries but always surrounded themselves with Korean culture, it is no surprise that Tara picked Rosé. They are also both absolutely stunning and are the epitome of grace, sophistication, and kindness.
Yet, it isn’t the first time a beauty queen has shared her love for K-Pop. Do Ha Yeon, the 2020 winner of Miss Global Korea, recently appeared in a video where she shared her love for BTS and even revealed that her ideal man was V!
It seems as if global beauty queens definitely have an amazing taste for K-Pop and there is no denying that if BLACKPINK and Rosé knew about her, that they would give her their full support ahead of the finals!
