'Daughters of Club Bilitis', the name refers to the first American lesbian organization launched in 1955, was aired last Sunday on KBS. It was the first time that a TV channel decided to program a series on lesbians.
Several episodes were planned but considering the public's reaction after only the first episode, the channel decided to stop the broadcasting.
On the series' forum, we could read anti-gay remarks as "this will negatively influence the youth" and "this drama has crime against humanity",…
Yet gay fictions were already broadcasted on television in the country but they were fictions so that had not shocked.
This series does not have yet anything of shocking. It tells the story of 3 lesbian couples representing various generations: 50-year-old Choi Ran and Choi Hyang Ja, 30-year-old career women Han Go Eun and Oh Jung and high school students Jin Yeon and Ahn Ji Hyu.
