Miss Grand Korea(미스그랜드코리아), Not Sending Delegates To International Pageant Hosted in Venezuela

Miss Grand Korea Organization, "Miss Grand Korea, The Different Pageant from Miss Grand International and MGI License Holder's Show."

Miss Grand Korea(미스그랜드코리아) Organizing Committee(hereinafter referred to as MGK Org.), who hosted Miss Grand Korea & DMZ World Peace Ambassador Pageant since 2016, informed that they neither send delegates to Miss Grand International 2020 nor continue to hold MGI Miss Grand International license.


Regarding the reason for not extending the license agreement with MGI Miss Grand International Organization, Lee Moon-yeol, co-president of the member of MGK Org. said, "Venezuela is a country where red travel warnings (withdrawal recommendations) have been issued, and dispatching our delegate to Venezuela for Miss Grand International 2020 in this health-threatening situation seems like not a good decision."


 MGK Org. dispatched Korean delegate to MGI Miss Grand International in 2017 and 2018. MGI Miss Grand International 2020 was held in Venezuela, where a red travel warning (withdrawal recommendation) was issued, and due to the safety reason, MGK Org. did not dispatch the delegate. At the time, MGK Org. sent a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs asking whether it was possible to participate in the competition, and was replied to 'Recommend to refrain from visiting Venezuela.' This year, 2020, all regions of Venezuela, including the capital, Caracas, are still red travel alerts(withdrawal recommendation). As the venue for MGI Miss Grand International 2020 is selected as Venezuela again, MGK Org. did not extend the license agreement with MGI Miss Grand International Organization.


The new MGI Miss Grand International license holder is a completely different organizer from MGK Org., who hosted Miss Grand Korea Pageant for four years.


 Miss Grand Korea is a unique domestic beauty pageant brand selecting DMZ World Peace Ambassador since 2017, and they hosted more than 17 contests, including regional and final competition since 2016. In 2017 and 2018, they sent their delegate to a pageant called Miss Grand International. In 2019, Korean participants were dispatched to an international pageant called Miss Global and Global Asian Model Competition by MGK Org. and served as a peace ambassador related to the DMZ.


MGK Org. is planning to hold Miss Grand Korea 2020 after the fall in consideration of the current situation of Corona 19. The selected delegate will be representing Korea by participating in international pageants, such as Miss Global, that is going to be held in Bali, Indonesia, in January next year, including other pageants. MGK Org. will provide the representative of Korea a full accommodation, airfare, traditional Korean costume, as well as evening gowns from ANAZ, one of the best evening gown designers in the world.


Lee Moon-yeol, co-president of the member of MGK Org. said, "Miss Grand International is only one of the international beauty competition that MGK Org. used to send the delegate. Miss Grand Korea is neither subordinate organizations nor subconcept of Miss Grand International. Miss Grand Korea is our unique domestic brand. We have been carrying out various activities in Korea and overseas in the name of DMZ World Peace Ambassador with the community called Halam Gathering."


He also added, "The ongoing legal dispute with Company P, related to the Disposal of Prohibited Use of The Name, Miss Grand Korea, will soon be judged by the court. I hope that the participants will not be confused with the existing Miss Grand Korea Pageant and Company P's contest."


On 19th, MGK Org. submitted "Application for Disposal of Prohibited Use of Similar Names" to prohibit the use of the name, Miss Grand Korea, against Company P. A lawsuit against Company P for the copyright infringement, portrait infringement, and the theft photos and videos will also be conducted.

의정부양주동두천환경운동연합, '의정부시 엉터리 용역보고서로 행정 방향 갈팡질팡' 성명서 내
[ 성 명 서 ] 의정부시는 2019년 한해만 본청과 환경사업소를 통해 20억5천만원 이상의 예산을 들여 시 행정에 관한 연구 용역을 실시하였다. 시의 앞으로의 운영방향과 각종 사업의 실행 여부를 위해 전문가 집단에게 용역을 맞기는 것은 타당한 일이다. 그런데 의정부양주동두천환경운동연합에서 사업을 살펴보기 위해 받아본 용역보고서들은 그 기본이 되는 전제나 자료부터 엉터리로 작성되고 있다. 2017년 1900만원을 들여 주식회사 동명기술공단종합건축사사무소에 의뢰한 ‘의정부 자원회수시설현대화타당성용역’(소각장 이전 타당성용역)의 경우 일일 생활폐기물 발생량 및 소각 대상 폐기물 추정을 근거자료도 없이, 정부의 폐기물 감축 계획도 적용하지 않은 상황에서 진행하였다. 이 자료는 환경영향평가 초안에 실렸고 의정부양주동두천환경운동연합의 지적으로 오류를 인정한바 있다. 결과적으로, 환경영향평가 본안에서는 일일소각 용량 220톤의 근거조차 제시하지 못하였다. 이산화탄소 발생량을 줄여 기후위기를 극복하여야 하는 시기에 무턱대고 쓰레기 발생량은 높게 잡고 소각을 통해 이산화탄소를 발생하겠다는 발상은 시민들의 반발을 살 수 밖에 없는 일이다. 소각폐기물이 증가할 것이라는 것을
