Gender Is Not Important December 21, Nick 66 In a comment that has been largely overlooked by both Korean and overseas K-pop media, Suga from Bangtan Boys has stated that his ideal type is not restricted to females only. At a first glance, the interview was pretty standard fare, containing all of the usual questions that interviewers ask during promotional period, and that we probably know by heart: What is the concept behind this album?

Where would you go on a dream date? Halfway through the interview, the interviewer asked Suga: I focus on personality and atmosphere. Is this a genuine coming out or something lost in translation? There is definitely room for error, seeing as Suga likely gave his answer in Korean, which was translated into Japanese for the magazine, which was translated into English for our benefit.

That being said, the statement becomes even more unambiguous in Korean. Japanese and Korean both derive a large percentage of their vocabulary from Chinese characters: Suga is saying that his view of an ideal type is not restricted to only the opposite gender, but encompasses all genders. From his reply, it seems to me that Suga is implying that he simply does not see gender as related to attraction: This could align with a definition of pansexuality — individuals who are attracted to people regardless of gender.

However, the implications of Suga possibly stating that he is bi or pansexual are quite large; it would make Suga the first idol to admit any sexual orientation other than heterosexual and place him in a handful of Korean celebrities in general that have done so. South Korean society remains considerably unfriendly to sexual minorities, and same-sex marriage is still not legal.

He has accomplished this largely by staying out of any political or social discussions relating to his orientation. On the other hand, filmmaker and active LGBT rights activist Kim Jo Kwang-soo has stirred up controversy last year by announcing his marriage to his boyfriend of nine years Kim Seung-hwan. Their ceremony was public but considered illegal in South Korea. Even in the international fandom, there are definite homophobic sentiments that have surfaced in light of this discussion.

While much of the fan response has been supportive and encouraging, there remains a large portion who feel that not being heterosexual is negative and needs to be defended against. But Suga being non-heterosexual is not a bad thing. To be called gay should not be considered an insult, regardless of how some people might use the term. While greater South Korean society has been more reluctant of accepting sexual minorities in the past decade, Suga could possibly join the various idols who have implicitly or explicitly shown support for the LGBT community in Korea and around the world.

He also reached out to her via private message, comforting her and saying that he understands somewhat her struggle as he is also a minority in the public eye as a celebrity. Jo Kwon from 2AM , as well, has been performing this year as the lead role in the musical Priscilla: Queen of the Desert; the story follows character Adam in his role as a drag queen, empowering queer and transgender individuals in their struggle for acceptance.

Jo Kwon received negative feedback from the public for taking the role, but he was firm in his decision and in his approval of the play. Do you think that Suga intended for his comments to be interpreted as a statement of pansexuality or bisexuality?
