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 know. I love seeing bromance moments just as much as everyone else, but some people just take it too far.

this, made me smile :)
Hopefully this paves the way for more people (Not just idols, even though Kyusaeng is utter joy and love in my book~~) to come out of the closest :')
Congrats to the both of them c:

Gosh guys, leave the pairing stans to themselves. They don't give a two shits about what any of you think in the first place lol and you replying to them won't chase them away.

On a better note, I wish happiness for the this guy and his groom to be~ Glad to see him pushing for what he wants :)

He's really brave and I think this could be a start not only for Korea but Asia as a whole in terms of mindset and openness to gays. But to actually legalize gay marriages, hmmm...I think that would take a while.
