From TV commercials to cross-dressing, queer romance is the latest craze in Korea.
Causing a stir among netizens, SK Telecom recently aired a new commercial with the zen-like tagline, “When you think he’s all right, there’s a girlfriend. When you think he’s perfect, there’s a boyfriend.” Well, I guess there’s some truth in the saying if you take into account all the members of Super Junior.
The promising fan service queer flick “Antique Bakery” has been the center of attention for some time now. Gorgeous men, gorgeous food, and some delicious man-on-man kiss scenes are enough to make this movie a cult favorite among fangirls.
Don’t forget about “Boy Meets Boy“, a movie about two boys who fall in love at first sight. If that wasn’t enough, it’s looks like they’re going to take a loosely based nonfiction spin on this story. Check out the bottom left corner of the poster: “Based on a true story”.
There’s also the highly anticipated historical movie “Frozen Flower“. Rumor has it, there will be a bed scene between eye-candy actors Joo Jin Mo and Jo In Sung. Meow…kinky.
TV drama “Painter of the Wind” and movie “Portrait of a Beauty” are both cross-dressing stories based on a novel about a female painter disguised as a man.
Why all this gayness?
Fangirls simply can’t resist attractive men together. “Coffee Prince” and “The King and the Clown” were huge successes with their homosexual, gender-bending undertones. Point is, film and drama execs know that boy-on-boy action sells.
