Kim wore a black suit and expressed her condolences to the families of victims of the Sewol that sank off the southwest coast on April 16.

She postponed the launch event twice in consideration of the victims and their families.

There are four kinds of medals featuring Kim's portrait and pre-orders can be made until Friday via Kookmin Bank.

Some of the proceeds will be donated to help families of the ferry victims.
