A lesbian kiss on TV in South Korea has led to a number of complaints to the country’s regulator.
Two students shared a kiss on school drama ‘Seonam Girls High School Investigators’ on Wednesday evening – which is thought to be the first lesbian kiss on TV in the country.
However, the moment sparked outrage among conservative viewers – and the broadcast regulator has now pledged to investigate whether the moment violated regulations.
The Korea Communications Standards Commission said: “We will decide whether this is an issue after we look into it, and whether there is any violation of broadcast policy.”
The creators of the show have defended the kiss as “necessary to the plot”.
Last year, a kiss between two female characters was edited out of a broadcast of Doctor Who in the country by BBC Worldwide.
The moment where Silurian lizard-woman Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) locked lips with her human wife Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart) was cut from broadcasts in Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.
A BBC spokesperson had said: “In order to comply with broadcast regulations in Asia where our BBC Entertainment channel airs, BBC Worldwide made a brief edit to the first episode of Doctor Who Series 8, but did so without detracting from the storyline.”

At first I thought it was about North Korea and I was completely shocked, then I realized it was about South Korea. Yet, I'm still shocked cause I didn't know they still have a problem with showing "that kind of stuff" on national television. But, on the bright side, at least, it's something. Yay!  Smiley
