Korean Moms Nix Gay Storyline!

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

momlogic's Vivian:Came across this story during my morning trawl on Perez Hilton,and it must be filed under "UNREAL"! Apparently, a group of Korean moms has formally mobilized to object to how a gay couple is portrayed on the popular Korean TV show "Life Is Beautiful." Their open letter of protest appeared in the Chosun Journal. Here's an alleged excerpt from the bummer of a bigoted missive:

Life is beautiful
"If my son becomes gay and dies from AIDS after watching 'Life Is Beautiful,' SBS must take responsibility! 'Life Is Beautiful' has glamorized the culture of gays against what is realistically, healthy and proper for the citizens of Korea."

In response, openly gay Korean actor Hong Seok-cheon apparently issued the following in a series of tweets: "'Take responsibility for my son becoming gay because of the drama?' What a funny ad, but also quite disappointing. Soon they will be putting out an ad saying, 'Don't hang out with Hong Seok-cheon if you don't want to be gay.' This was the exact reason I was fired from 'BboBboBbo' 10 years ago when I first came out -- all of those calls made to the broadcast company asking to take me off the show. If such logic was true, all of those children that were on a part of the show with me should be gay by now, but they aren't. The gay couple that is shown on 'Life Is Beautiful' is so beautifully and realistically drawn. If there really is a son out there that becomes gay after watching the drama, it is not because he became gay but because he actually was gay and finally earned enough confidence to come out. It could be the drama that gave him that strength to come out to his parents and ask for understanding. How unfortunate for the children that live under the parents that put out such a trashy advertisement. AIDS is not a disease specific to gays. How is it that I found out that I was gay 25 years before I saw the drama 'Life Is Beautiful'? What kind of dramas did the gays in the '50s, '60s and '70s watch in order to become gay? Being gay is not a contagious disease, you fools. The people that put out this ad not only demolished the human rights of gays but of AIDS patients as well."

Tell it like it is, Hong! Surprising and sad to hear that a group of moms would band together and make a concerted effort to issue such a message of hatred, ignorance and bigotry. Question is, how long until one of their children comes out? What will they do then?
