Kim Sung-ryoung, actor and former Miss Korea, will head the judging panel for the upcoming 2018 Miss Korea Pageant, according to local media outlet Hankook Ilbo E&B, on Wednesday.

In 1988, Kim won the 32nd Miss Korea Pageant, a national beauty pageant. Kim is the very first former Miss Korea to become the head judge of the competition.

Since her win at the beauty pageant 30 years ago, Kim has been actively pursuing her career as an actor.

She has appeared in multiple films and dramas such as “Shadows in the Palace” (2007), “Believer” (2018), the MBC series “Flower of the Queen” (2015) and SBS’ “The Legend of the Blue Sea” (2016-2017).

The 62nd Miss Korea Pageant will take place at the Olympic Hall in Olympic Park, southern Seoul on July 4.
