I am sorry but i can not understand how above koreans answered it is ok to be openly gay in korea. Korean society is not opened to gay people yet. They are lack of understanding of gay people. Do not think being gay is ok because korean people do not show bad expression directly to gay people.
Asian people do not show their real expressions directly and freely.
I believe that still half of korean people do not like gay people so being openly gay is not a good thing at all korea. I just want to tell the truth.
@vpdlxms1 So a lot of the prejudice comes from the lack of knowledge about the lgbt community like in a lot of countries right? Hopefully people will become more accepting in the near future, and for the gay people out there I just hope they're safe! By the way, thanks for replying!
I personally respect the LGBT community and so but I don't know it's because I'm open-minded or I have gay friends or I'm studying abroad. Maybe it's all of 'em. Well, it'd be hard especially for older people to accept this, but well, personally, my friends (young millennials so to speak) and my parents don't mind it at all. We should raise the awareness that different doesn't mean wrong (yes, it's probably because of lack of knowledge). It's nothing to be frowned upon at all.
@Cashmere I definitely agree with you, its on us to raise awareness and make the whole world a better place for everyone! Nice to know that the environment that you grew up on is very accepting, hopefully that will be the case in a lot of homes in the near future. Thanks for replying too!
