China is banning Korean record blockbuster movie “The King and The Clown” from screening in local cinemas.
The movie was based on 16th century story where the king had a gayish relationship with his royal entertainers.
This is the 2nd high profile banning of gay movie from China authorities, which I think was over conservative.
Earlier this year they banned Hollywood award winning movie “Brokeback Mountain.”
I actually read from BBC that China considered gay a mental disorder until 2001, ridiculous but funny.
China however do allow the distribution of DVDs for the Korean movie, Chinese fans still have a chance to watch their idol like Lee Jun-ki and others.
