Pageantry

Miss Asia Pacific World 2014

In 2014, Noe participated in the 2014 edition of Miss Asia Pacific World, where she was crowned as the winner. She was subsequently stripped of the title three months after her win, under allegations by the South Korean pageant organizers that she displayed an "ungrateful attitude and untrustworthiness" by being rude and not returning phone calls.

Noe claimed that the organizers pressured her to undergo extensive plastic surgery, and criticized the organization for its poor reputation. She further stated that she was coaxed to provide escort services for South Korean tycoons. Noe handed the crown, valued at $100,000, over to Burmese authorities in Myanmar, but refused to have the crown returned to South Korea until she received a formal apology.

The organization formally accused Noe of defamation in September 2015.
