Korea over for gay Korean soldiers

The South Korean army is trying to weed out gay soldiers after a video emerged online of two of their male soldiers having sex.

Lim Tae-hoon of the Military Human Rights Center for Korea told the Associated Press that there are “credible reports” that army investigators have seized mobile phones and “outed” soldiers who were secretly using dating apps or threatened those who have already been identified as gay by the Army.

There is no rule against gay men serving in South Korea’s armed forces but they are banned from engaging in “homosexual activity” while serving and face two years in prison if prosecuted.
