When asked about going braless in the Night of Hate Comments variety show, Sulli stated, “Going braless is one’s freedom,” adding that “Bras have wires; they are not good for health. Not wearing one is comfortable. That is something beautiful and natural. For me, a bra is like an accessory. Some outfits go with it, and others do not. That’s why I sometimes do not wear a bra.” Sulli took her life in October due to severe depression from cyberbullying.
Another Kpop idol Hwasa has also been spotted in an airport without the undergarment. According to Netizens, this was her response to the “No Bra Day” commemoration to raise awareness on breast cancer.
News presenter Lim Hyun-Ju also ignited a debate when she appeared braless on an MBC documentary program entitled “Series M,” which centered on her participation for “No Bra Day.”
“Sharing my thoughts and experiences through the challenge was pretty meaningful for me, considering the character of my job as a news presenter,” she said despite the hate comments on her Instagram, adding that she did not jump to a conclusion whether going braless is good or bad. It was a part of her experiment examining whether women should wear bras or not.
“Don’t you think this has been a taboo that people don’t want to discuss?” she further said.
