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.

daesung_fanatic I was excited....16th-Mar-2011 03:21 pm (UTC)
till I saw it was to someone who was 19 years YOUNGER than him O_O

I mean don't get me wrong I'm all for it but...19 years younger? hell I am 19 years old myself but just WOW

Read that again.... 19 years younger than him. NOT that they're 19 years old.

46 - 19 = 27.

27 is just fine.

19 isn't even legal in Korea anyway (20 is).

XD ok I know I am super bad at math but I was MEANING the age difference is HUGE not that they were 19 years old LOLZ XDD

see this is why most of my posts if I post anything at all are super long because if I don't explain myself everyone misunderstands and then gets confused which half the time confuses me

so I should of put the age difference was huge and yeah

Good for him...:)

Wow I'm sooo happy for that.
He's really brave I would be terrified to come out if I was korean. Both Koreas seems to be extremely homophobic countries.

Kim Jho Kwang-soo is a brave man.

Did his career ever suffer after coming out? Hong Seok-cheon had it pretty bad.


I haven't seen Wanee and Junah, but I have seen 'Boy Meets Boy' and 'Just Friends?' and they are seriously adorable movies.
