A video of Fiestar Jei kissing a girl intimately is creating a buzz in Korea. South Korean dramas don’t usually take the risk of doing homosexual themes, however “Lily Fever” is doing just that.
Not only are there intimate kissing scenes between two girls, the main cast is a K-pop idol, Jei from Fiestar. The subject of homosexuality is still a controversial topic in Korea, as was witnessed during the Korea Pride celebration when mobs of Christian groups protested the event to the point of violence. LGBT rights still face some resistance from the more conservative older generations in Korea, however actions like this from a popular Korean celebrity prove that progress towards equality for all is being made slowly but surely in South Korea. The clip from Jei’s drama can be seen below.
