First for Korean gay couple

, May 15, 2013

Gay South Korean film director Kim Jho Gwang-soo (L) and his partner Kim Seung-hwan pose during a news conference in Seoul on May 15. Kim Jho Gwang-soo is set to symbolically marry his long-term partner, saying he aims to pry open the closet in this conservative Asian country where homosexuality is still taboo and gays have been subjected to hate crimes. Kim Jho Gwang-soo announced plans to marry his partner of nine years on Wednesday, becoming the first South Korean show business personality to do so and only the second to ever come out.  Reuters/Lee Jae-Won
