3 asian women on the cover, such a powerful move

I literally learned about this cover because I saw a tumblr text post that said "vogue just put three Asian women on their cover!!! this is a massive breakthrough!!"

followed by another person saying "where's the image?" and then this cover was posted. I died. Such representation.

Congrats to Bae Donna though, it only took one and a quarter centuries.

I have the same change in reaction like you all.
And the caption in her picture, "-not like kpop star. They have no privacy. I'm an actor" that sounds sad..

Disney coins for End game

Also the white women are in center of both covers, I wonder why?
There's also a video at the source with some sort of game and she was also center

'Celebrating talent' and they put ScarJo on the cover? In the center even, over someone like Bae Doona? That's desecration

Thats awesome but sad at the same time it took so long. Have there been korean americans before or do they just mean korean nationality?
