Neither of us are transgender, nor have we met anyone here who has openly admitted to us that they are. Also, for fairly obvious reasons, this is not a topic that’s so easy to talk about, especially if you’re talking about Korea. Reason being, there’s just not that much information out there on this subject.

When we got this question, we received it as an email. We do gets lots of email at this point with questions and things like that, but it usually aren’t questions people want us to answer in a video. The person who wrote to us saw one of our other LIKE IT’s on Homosexuality in Korea, and this spurred them to ask us about how it might also be for transgendered people here. Since they are considering moving to China, they were asking about what it might be like there, and how we deal with people who are mostly closed-minded to the subject, Since there’s probably even less information on YouTube about Transgender experiences in China we thought that we could at least give our perspectives and observations from Korea.

So that’s what we did.

While researching information about Homosexuality in Asia, we came across a great video by the Rachel and Jun YouTube channel from Japan. They made a video about Japanese people’s experience on homosexuality and it’s extremely informative.

    I know this is a hard topic to tackle but I am truly curious. I know you may not beable to answer exactly as a Korean would, but I am curious. We all know about the past tragedy last week. No worries, not going to ask anything crazy? I am just curious about grieving processes in Korea. For instance when 9-11 happened in America, tv stopped for like a week and half tops. It seems to fans that a lot of things halted in Korea. They’re saying it will last maybe three weeks at last I heard. It’s obvious why. Is there things that internationals may misunderstand. It’s easier for people there to know. How long is their grieving processes? Do they have to wear black for an extended amount of time. Is it wrong to show certain emotions even if it is to cover up your heart break? I always try to be extra cautious with this kind of thing. I have been a fan of Korean culture, language, and music for four years now. I always fear on forums and chat rooms I might say the wrong thing. Can you shed light on this, or add more info? Again I ask with the deepest respect.
