Singer Naul ranked ninth, and he has released works about black people with his painting skills that can be compared to that of a pure art major.

The highest winning bid for the work is 3 million won.
In sixth place was actress Kim Hye-soo. The highest winning bid for Kim Hye-soo’s work was 5 million won, and she donated the entire proceeds. Fifth place is actor Park Ki-woong.
