In a first for South Korea, a gay couple has married, despite a ban on such weddings.

Pink News reports:

Two gay filmmakers staged the first public same-sex wedding in South Korea on Saturday, despite laws which prohibit gay couples from marrying in the country. Film director and producer Kimjo Gwang-soo, 48, and 29-year-old Kim Seung-hwan, the head of gay film distributor Rainbow Factory, were married on a temporary stage built in central Seoul yesterday. More than 1,000 guests and citizens attended the staged ceremony, reports the Korea Herald.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
