Photographs publicized last week purporting to show two male North Korean soldiers engaged in an amorous embrace have gone viral online. Many netizens in South Korea and abroad have voiced support for the "cute couple" and saluted their courage; but others are deeply concerned for their personal safety now that the images have gone viral and have condemned whoever released the photos to begin with. As the story spreads, many are also wondering what the situation for homosexuals in the famously repressive 'Hermit Kingdom' is really like. Due to tradition in Korean culture, it is not customary for individuals of any sexual orientation to engage in public displays of affection. As a country that has embraced science and rationalism, the DPRK recognizes that many individuals are born with homosexuality as a genetic trait and treats them with due respect. Homosexuals in the DPRK have never been subject to repression, as in many capitalist regimes around the world. However, North Koreans also place a lot of emphasis on social harmony and morals. Therefore, the DPRK rejects many characteristics of the popular gay culture in the West, which many perceive to embrace consumerism, classism and promiscuity. Doesn't sound too bad, but considering this is coming from a government that also claims to provide for complete freedom of religious belief, speech and assembly, it's hardly the most credible source.

Are K-dramas' awkward kissing scenes negatively affecting the way Koreans kiss in real life? I'm a European girl from a very liberal area in Scandinavia, currently living in my friend's house in Seoul. I arrived here a couple of months ago and in this time I've spent a lot of time at the clubs and meeting my friends' friends jokingly via "blind dating" etc, most of whom are native Korean. I'm here on semi-vacation so I'm not looking for anything serious as I will be gone in a couple of months, however I have ended up making out with quite many Korean guys in clubs and at parties for fun I'd say 15 to 20 guys. None of these encounters have led to sex as I'm not that into having sex, I enjoy sensual things like making out and touching more than sex. What came to me as a completely surprise was that each and every one of these guys have been, to put it very bluntly - really not that good kissers. I feel kinda bad for saying this as I'm so against all kinds of stereotypes, but that has been my honest experience. I am usually very into kissing and I have never had much problems not liking the kissing style of guys, I can only remember a few guys in the West whose kissing was totally repulsive to me.
