LGBT representation in South Korean film and television
In South Korea, movies and TV shows with gay or transgender people are not very common. But people are starting to think differently about them. In the 1990s, when people in South Korea asked for rights for gay people, more movies showed gay characters. The country did not always support gay people. But things are changing a little. Now, there is a special movie event called the Korean Queer Film Festival. It started in the 1990s. Since a long time ago, after a big war in Korea, movies with gay people have changed a lot. Different groups have helped change how people think and what movies are like in South Korea.
