SBS Anchor Dons Bikini for Miss Universe Pageant

SBS presenter Kim Joo-hee has swapped her demure suit for a bikini to take part in the Miss Universe contest in Los Angeles. Kim was Miss Korea 2005 and represents the country in the pageant. Ahead of the competition, she posed for some bikini-clad pictures on the pageant¡¯s homepage.

A TV presenter since answering an open call for new announcers last year, Kim departs from the beauty queens¡¯ habitual calls for world peace on the website by confiding, "I want to become Korea's greatest anchorwoman."
