Gay filmmaker Kim Jho Kwang-soo announces his marriage to a younger man

Kim Jho Kwang-soo (46) made an announcement to marry a 19 years younger male and has been an issue.

Announcing his marriage on the 15th, he also determined to get his marriage recognized by law. Not a transgender, he is the second to come out of the closet besides Hong Seok-cheon in the entertainment industry and is well known as an earnest and progressive filmmaker.

He is a middle aged movie maker who established movie company Cheong Nyon Films and started being active in the mid 1990s.

Unique and mellow movie "Wanee and Junah" with top star Kim Hee-seon and rookie Joo Jin-mo was the movie that gave him the lift to fame.

This movie didn't succeed greatly but it was overwhelming in issue and was acknowledged as skilled for having cast Kim Hee-seon.

He didn't come out of the closet then but it was widely known that he was gay among movie makers. His intentions seemed definite when he kept bringing in gay police officers in the movie "Wanee and Junah".

He chased two hares at once as the recently produced "Detective K" gathered great success.

I read this too fast and thought he was marrying a 19 year old. ^^""" And just out of curiosity, how easily would it be for him to get his marriage recognized by law? States in US has been going forever about this issue, (like California).

good for him. I hope that more can come out. But his soon to be groom is too young that it kinda creeps me out.

I'm happy that Hong Seokcheon seems to be doing ok in the entertainment industry or at least I got to see him on TV.
