On the website, President Moon Jae In and former Mayor of Seoul, Park Won Soon, are listed as feminists under the “pioneer” category. BTS’s leader, RM, is listed as “confirmed” because he read books about feminism.
Actor Kwon Hae Hyo, Youtubers Baelina, writer Gong Ji Young and Kwak Jeong are also mentioned as “pioneers”.

The website administrators posted a notice to explain the criteria for their classification, saying, “This site is a list of feminists. We divided the celebrities into 3 categories such as “suspicious”, “confirmed”, and “pioneer”, depending on their information.” They also said, “Since the list is categorized purely based on their activities, the level of criticism they receive may vary depending on the categories they are classified.”
