Calendars for next year featuring topless well-built firefighters will be on sale for the next two months at five stores online and offline, said the Seoul Metropolitan Fire and Disaster Headquarters, which is behind the project, on Friday.

All profits from the calendars will go to supporting burn patients who lack financial means for medical care. The project for a good cause began in 2014, with a total of 26,729 copies sold over the past four years.

The firefighters who posed for the 2018 calendar are winners of a contest for firemen in Seoul with the best bodies, held in April. Photographer Oh Joong-seok contributed to the project.

The calendars are available in two types -- for the desk and for the wall. Each one is priced at 11,900 won ($10) to remind people of the number 119 for the fire department.

They will be available at the online stores GS Shop, 10x10 and 29cm, as well as offline stores in Daehangno and Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul.
