Miss Korea 1994 and former SBS announcer Han Sung-joo has spoken openly about the difficulties she went through after her divorce.
On the SBS "Late Night Show" on Monday, Han said, "There were so many things that I didn't get to do just because I was a divorcee. I was shunned for the same reason. Things were harsh."
But despite painful memories of her divorce, she says she desperately hopes to meet somebody soon and get married again.
A graduate of Korea University, Han won the Miss Korea beauty pageant in 1994. She married the third son of AeKyung cosmetics and detergent conglomerate chairwoman Chang Young-shin in 1999 but divorced just 10 months later.
Despite the emotional blow, Han said she wants to show a better, more confident side of herself in the media.
