Hong Seok-cheon revealed the backbiting he heard after coming out.
KBS Joy entertainment program “Sseolvival,” which aired on the 17th, featured broadcaster Hong Seok-cheon as a guest.
When MC Park Na-rae said to Hong Seok-cheon, “I think I have been hurt a lot by prejudice,” Hong Seok-cheon replied, “I have a lot of prejudice against me.”
He said, “I came out and stayed at home, and I thought, ‘You can go to a gay club because you came out,’ so I went openly without a hat.”
They said, ‘Hey, are you okay? You did a great job.’ It must be hard, but please be our hope.”
“I came out of the club in a good mood, but I didn’t pay. I was going to go back in and pay for it, and they said, ‘I cannot understand why he came out. He’s not a good-looking guy to be our representative face. Can’t a good-looking person come out?’ he told me a behind-the-scenes story.
MC Hwang Bo-ra comforted Hong Seok-cheon by saying, “I’ve never heard him curse at me.” Hong Seok-cheon smiled bitterly, saying, “In the end, I came out without paying because of the shock.”
