October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and some notable K-Pop idols are using their influence to help raise awareness.
Magazine W Korea has an annual breast cancer awareness campaign. This is its 17th year. Each year, they collaborate with a world-renowned artist. For example, American artist Kaws designed T-shirts in 2019.
This year, American artist Daniel Arsham is the designer behind the “Love Your W” shirt, the name of the campaign. There are only 100 limited edition T-shirts.
And many of these T-shirts belong to some of the hottest K-Pop idols and celebrities. MONSTA X‘s Hyungwon, ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo, (G)I-DLE‘s Shuhua and Minnie helped debut this year’s design.
