Before the pageant finals, Lee was a frontrunner on many pageant sites, one of the early favorites among the 77 participants, impressing judges with her outstanding beauty and brains plus diverse talents. For the portion in which all the contestants enter clad in national costumes, Lee wore the female hanbok , reminiscent of the style of the recent 2006 KBS dramaHwang Jin-i. She was also carrying a janggu with her when she wore her costume. Her question in the Question and Answer portion was asked by James Kyson Lee , who is also Korean. Favored by numerous pageant sites as a finalist and potential to become Korea's Miss Universe. Lee missed out on the title when her interpreter did a poor job of translating her final question. Many believe the meaning of Honey’s answer was indeed grammatically changed from a humanitarian to a gold digger as stated having a fat endless wallet. She finished in the top 5 as 3rd runner-up. She ended Korea's nineteen-year drought in the Miss Universe Finals as a Finalist. The last Miss Korea to be a finalist in Miss Universe was Jang Yun-jeong , winning 1st runner-up in 1988. Being the huge favorite of countless people during her competition at the Miss Universe Pageant in 2007, Honey Lee became the 10th Miss Grand Slam of the year from the notable website called Global Beauties . She was quoted as the winner of all rounds.
Through an evaluation of 100 top contestants who participated in the world’s five leading beauty pageants — Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International, Miss Earth, and Miss Tourism Queen International, she was selected by Global Beauties as the Miss Grand Slam 2007 and garnered the following awards: Face of the Universe, Best in Evening Gown, Best in National Costume and Best in Interview.
