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.

In the vid post, I said Minnie always seemed awkward, and someone said that he's grown out of it. Glad to see that I'm not the only who things he still lives in a sea of awkwardness.

To me he's only suave in photoshoots; video is a whole other story. I totally get the WHY IS MY LIFE LIKE THIS VIBE from him. Especially when the other three were there along with Yunho to constantly embarrass him in front of all of Korea and Japan. You know his friends teased him merciless about their fail. lol
