Honey Lee or Lee Ha-nui (이하늬) denies having had plastic surgery but is not against it. She is a graduate student and an accomplished kayageum (the traditional Korean zither) player. She represented Korea at the 2007 Miss Universe pageant in Mexico City; she was the 3rd runner-up.
While growing up, Honey, who is the younger of two daughters, loved sports. If she wasn’t at school or kayageum practice, she would usually be skiing, learning Taekwondo or swimming.

In an interview for the Miss Universe 2007 pageant, Honey revealed that she was named a kayageum prodigy by the Kumho Art Center, which is apparently the most prestigious musical foundation in Korea.
