Gaga's Korean War

Koreans Protest Lady Gaga’s Lewd Lyrics and Pro-Gay Ways

Seems Lady Gaga has reached a new milestone: having a nation protest her presence. For Madonna, it was the Vatican hate her when she crucified herself in nearby Rome. For Gaga? It’s the South Korean Christian zealots who think her “Born This Way” tour should be banned because she advocates homosexuality and pornography.

According to CBS: Nearly 300 conservative Protestants met in Seoul on Sunday to pray Gaga away. And members of the Alliance for Sound Culture in Sexuality put up posters in Seoul, accusing Gaga of “spreading unhealthy sexual culture” through “lewd lyrics and performances.” The fliers have since been removed by city officials but prayers continue.

While Gaga has been wracked by some controversy of her own making recently, this is a new feather in her proverbial cap. And it may get nasty. “We will pray to God that the concert will not be realized so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country,” Kang Ju-Hyun, a prayer organiser told AFP. But as we all know, Gaga’s God is dancing to a different drummer.

      Christian Koreans are the biggest gossipers I have ever met. What’s the deal with all the extra “her”s in the article?

      @erasure25: I should say including half of myself. Lol, not being racist but from personal experience being half Korean.

      Hmmm if she dressed like a Zerg she would be embraced. And I feel she might just happen to have a Zerg costume. Or a Protoss?

      Didn’t they learn anything from the past 25 years and Madonna; it’s just free promo which equals more sales and more interest. Gaga should send them a ‘Thank You’ note.

      Funny thing is, even accounting for cultural differences, Korea’s own music industry is even more homoerotic than high school football.

      Seoul has a population of over 10MM people. I was at Seoul station when 1000s gathered to protest rice imports. 300 people caring about this enough to protest is meaningless.

      Please don’t stereotype a whole country because of 300 people. I’ve been to Seoul and there are a lot of gaga and Johnny Weir fans there.

      Its not fair to say the whole nation is protesting against gaga.
      Unfortunately, no matter where you are you will find some idiots.
      In this case its 300 people protesting because gaga is evil or something.

      @Charlie: LOL. I don’t think I’ve ever been this quickly infatuated with someone over a single comment.

      Let’s not forget how none-gay the Zergs are with their sunken and spore colonies. ;)

      @SixPackWallpapers: That’s why they hate Gaga. They have high standards of queendom.

      @Spike: Most masculine? Sorry, hon. Filipinos, Middle Easterns, Indians and Russians are Asian too. And you’re saying that Koreans–the source of boy bands like Super Junior–are the most masculine?

      *this is one of those times when I wish I can post a gif in Queerty.

      @Rusk: A question though, are you sure that they’re not just fans of one person but are simply unable to tell the difference? 0_0

      Three hundred protestors in SEOUL????? Like ten million people live in Seoul! That hardly seems even worth mentioning.

      Christian Koreans also vandalize Buddhist Temples and anything they consider idolatrous.

      the government also made the show only for people 18 and older so younger fans who already bought tickets were forced to get refunds
      also she was prohibited from doing parts of the show and the attendees werent allowed to bring real cameras – only phones
      yet the stadium was filled up with 45 thousand people and the second highest counted attendance for a western act – the first being Michael Jackson
