The dateline says this was posted on March 31, 2015, but I'm thinking it was posted one day too early, if you know what I mean. If you have any doubts, wait until you read the last two paragraphs!

Guessing/hoping this isn't real, a la Onion. (Had me until Youseokdong, surprised the official isn't named You BeomSeok)

It makes sense, since we all know for a fact that there aren't ANY gay people in Korea. They don't want to be a 'gay tourist hub'. Makes perfect sense. Laughing

Guess you didn't take John Oliver's pledge? Good one.

Would 베리빅개동 be better? I mean, with a longer Embarassed name, it might seem so impressive Embarassed that it would be a success. I am sure this is a hard Embarassed job, but Embarassed someone has to come Embarassed up with names that can not be taken the wrong way.

Would 베리휴즈핫개동타운 be even better?

If they go after anything, I would think they'd start in Jeju. 서귀포시 just jumped right out at me the first time I visited.
