VOGUE: Inside Sehun's Style Evolution


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Developing great style takes time, and for those who’ve grown up in the spotlight, the progression can be charted in public appearances and social media updates. For Sehun, the fashion forward member of Seoul-based boy band EXO, his current dapper look is only the latest in a series of daring incarnations. The star, who turns 23 today, has never been afraid to experiment, and his willingness to test new ideas made for eventful moments. On the red carpet or off-duty Sehun has embraced trends before they hit critical mass; Whether he’s breezing through an airport in a brocade Gucci sweatshirt as he did back in November, or appearing onstage in a sleek Saint Laurent leather jacket during 2013’s KBS Song Festival, his menswear has been consistently chic.

Gay soldiers are being outed from dating apps by army chief, claim campaigners

An army boss stands accused of ordering a mass probe to out gay soldiers. According to campaign group the Military Human Rights Center for Korea (MHRCK), General Jang Jun-kyu, army chief of staff in South Korea, launched a “track-down process” to find and out suspected gay personell. This included setting up fake profiles on dating apps to track down soldiers and expose them. The process is thought to have identified 50 soldiers, 20 of whom now face charges under the country’s military anti-homosexuality laws.
Multiple soldiers have reported being outed and punished as part of the hunt, according to the group.

“Gen Jang is obviously incapable of leading the army,” MHRCK said in a statement. “He treated his men who did their best to protect their homeland as if they were culprits and made them suffer the most horrible fear — losing personal dignity. He must take responsibility and resign immediately.”

Although same-sex sexual activiy is not illegal in the country, the army retains a code of conduct that bans homosexuality, and military service is mandatory. Under South Korean law a soldier who commits “sodomy” or “other disgraceful conduct” can face up to two years in prison. The country also continues to deny gay citizens marriage equality.
