Korean Gaydar Technology Lags Behind International Standards

by

Despite being a leader in manufacturing LCD screens and flash memory chips, Korea is still years behind the cutting edge in gaydar technology, according a government-commissioned study. Kim Jungho, the director of the study, says, "We're decades behind. If you were to look at American standards, you have would to go back to the days when people thought George Michaels was a ladykiller to find something comparable to the state of Korean gaydar."

Many Koreans agree that the national gaydar standard is low. "I just found out that one of my co-workers is gay and I was shocked," says office worker Lee Jihyun. "In hindsight, I guess there were signs I could've picked up on. He dressed well, he never had a girlfriend, and he was a bit feminine. There was also that time he showed me a wedding album of himself getting married to a man. But for some reason I never put it together."

In order to increase the level of Korea's gaydar technology, Arirang TV will begin broadcasting such shows as "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy", "Queer as Folk", and "Live with Ryan Seacrest."

    What do you expect? Before Ha Ri-soo, it was hard to find any Korean that would even admit there were gays. That was a “foreign thing.” There are no homos in Korea.

    Men wearing make-up apparently still does not get the gaydar working. Must be Korean gay stealth technology.

    By the way, Arirrang is far more gay than ANYTHING in Korea nad always has been.

    10 out of fucking 10!

    Hahahah nice work! Do you think the increase in gaydar will affect the number of schoolboys walking around holding hands, or sitting on eachother’s laps? Ahh the mysteries of the future.

    Don’t you mean Liberace?

    Does the improved gaydar affect the number of boys sticking fingers up the mates arses when they sit down, or Ahn Jung-hwan kissing his ring?

  5. Dear Editor Billy B. Robertson Says:

    As I understand, Ahn Jung-hwan kisses his ring after every goal as a gesture of affection towards his wife, and frankly, I find nothing gayer than that. Surely an improved gaydar will quickly out this deviant.

    “If you were to look at American standards, you have would to go back to the days when people thought George Michaels was a ladykiller to find something comparable to the state of Korean gaydar.”

    Going further back (most readers are probably too young to remember) is an even more instructive example: the Village People. Bunch of guys dressed as assorted macho characters – construction worker, cop, Indian warrior, etc. – singing, well, “Macho Macho Man, I want to be a macho man.”

    And who can forgot those immortal lines, “I wanna go to the Y-M-C-A!….”

    When the boys were outed, initial confusion on the part of many quickly gave way to palms striking foreheads: “shit, how did we not see that?”

    Straight America’s awkward introduction to the less recognized side of the “butch:bitch” dialectic marked an milestone in the development of US gaydar, I do believe.

    Right up there with reactions around the time of Freddie Mercury’s rumored death from AIDS. “You mean the guy was gay?!”

    Hmmm, prances around on stage wearing skin tight jeans and a large Italian sausage apparently strapped to his inner thigh singing for a group called “Queen.”

    “No, Man, I knew all along….”

    right… Korean also should have a TV progammer like Gaydar.. it would be funny.. hehe~

  9. HrwangWarrier Says:

    Korea has thousands of years of homos as heros. It is said that Yi Sun Shin used to make his soldiers smoke his pole in order to prove their manhood. Oh now we laugh at such a transparent trick, but this was in long long ago time.
