While drama between Yutori Kudo (工藤佑采) and Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) seems to have subsided, former second runner up winner in the 1984 Miss Hong Kong pageant, Joan Tong (唐麗球) showed her support for Yutori in a recent interview.
When asked about Yutori putting on a supposed stank face (黑面) after she didn’t make it further into the competition, Joan empathized with Yutori. Joan goes on to say “It’s normal to have those emotions after not making it further into the competition. I would feel the same way if it was me. This is just her personality and she’s being real. I respect her and don’t think there is anything wrong with her actions.”
The reporter presses on with another question asking Joan on whether Yutori is not very tactful, Joan responds “Honestly, I didn’t watch her performance, so I don’t know exactly how stank her face was. I just saw what you guys wrote about her. In previous years, contestants didn’t have to perform after losing. Some people will be able to perform with a happy face, others can’t.”
On the social media drama between Yutori and Jacqueline, Joan expresses, “It’s unnecessary since it’s not a big deal. We shouldn’t attack each other. Don’t create drama on social media. It’s not good for anyone’s image and makes it difficult for each other.”
Hopefully this is the last we hear of the drama. I don’t recall past Miss Hong Kong pageants requiring contestants to perform after not making it into the top five. This seems to be something copied from the American pageants.
From the pictures alone, I don’t really see a stank face. A lot of people have RBF (Resting Bitch Face), so it could just be a case of that as well.
Are you on team Yutori or team Jacqueline?
