Why did Women in South Korea Decide to Take off Their Bras?
Women in South Korea are posting pictures of themselves online without bras under their clothes.
With the hashtag # NoBra – which means “no bra” – it has become a growing feminist movement on social media platforms.
The idea spread after South Korean actress and singer “Sulli” posted pictures of her without a bra through her account, which is followed by millions, the application of Instagram.

Since then, for many, the singer has become a symbol of South Korea’s “no bra” movement and sends a clear message that wearing a bra is “personal freedom.”
Many social media users say they “seek attention” and accuse them of being deliberately provocative.
Some argue that she uses the women’s movement for her own fame.
More recently, photos of another famous singer known as “Hawassa” have highlighted the # NoBra movement.
Photos and videos taken on her return to Seoul from a concert in Hong Kong, wearing a white shirt without a bra underneath, were widely circulated.
Since then, movement among ordinary women has escalated. It is not just individual cases of women seeking freedom of choice in South Korea.
In the past few years, South Korean women’s protests have grown over the culture of male power rule, sexual violence, and the spread of “spy camera” crimes where men hide cameras in toilets and other public places.
2018 saw the largest-ever women’s protest in the country, with tens of thousands of women taking to the streets of Seoul, demanding tough action against pornography from spy camera recordings.
