Male idols are gay?September 20, 2009
I introduced Kpop to my friend recently and he commented on the femininity of some male idols. My friend asked me if they were gay and actually I don’t know what to say. When I first got into Kpop, I was surprise myself how touchy these guys are. Initially I thought they were gay but as time pass, I just tell myself that they’re doing fan service. Come to think of it, I can’t think of any gay entertainer that has come out in Korea. Is homosexuality prohibited in Korean entertainment?
Anyway, I came up with a list of male idols that I feel are on the other side of the fence. I also took some input from my friend. To those fans of these guys, please don’t be mad. It’s just an opinion. It doesn’t mean that they are.
1.) Heechul – Super Junior
2.) Jo Kwon – 2am
3.) Leeteuk – Super Junior
4.) Seung Ri – Big Bang
5.) Key – SHINee
6.) Sungmin – Super Junior
7.) Jaejoong – DBSK
8.) Ryeowook – Super Junior
We don’t think anyone in 2pm has a feminine manner. Also SS501 are pretty but they haven’t done anything to make anyone outside of Korea doubt their sexual preference.
