This is close to reaching the front page of /r/all and well, in this humble little sub, we're not used to this.
I would like to ask those who decide to comment to follow the subs rules, especially those about targeting other redditors with personal attacks, using overly offensive language, or using racism in your comments.
Edit - Also, please report those breaking the rules. It makes modding easier.
Serious question: Why is the sin stuff written in English? I didn't make it to the pride parade, but was it all non-Koreans?
This is one of those pictures that will appear on the internet time and again after today, under all sorts of titles, with all kinds of people claiming they own it. Congrats, you've basically made internet history.
We've had several korea interns, and their stance tends to range from either "duh there are gay people" to "there are no gay hanguk, period.".
And the people in the second category didn't seem to give fucks about people being gay. It was weird.
For the record, I was asking about PSY when this came up. I dunno if that makes me a shmuck or not, I was just curious as to public opinion.
the real heroes are the cops, making sure nobody gets hurt while they voice their opinions.
As a Korean I find it strange that mainstream society will think homosexuality is wrong, but have you seen kpop boybands.
Edit: I seen to have triggered some of yall, tbh I just looked at the picture and thought this was r/funny or something and this was meant as a joke. I sincerely apologize for the off colour joke.
On a more serious remark: I heard that there are a few celebs that can't come out the closet for fear of losing their jobs. Mainstream Korean media is very much against homosexuality, in Korea you mostly can't appear on TV if you're gay or trans, except if you're hong seok chun. For some reason that dude gets a pass.
These comments are so different from normal. /r/all really does have a big effect huh
I mean J.C. hung out with 12 other dudes and dated a prostitute. How could he not be for gay people?
I didn't know Christianity had infiltrated Korea this much.
