Queer Asian Women - Series and Movies

A list for someone who is looking for this kind of representation in Asian TV, more specifically from the Southeast and Far east countries.

If you're looking for a list to:
Prevent the famous and hated queerbaiting;
Hear someone's personal opinion (mine is based in everything i've seen so far in Les/Bi* Asian TV);
This list is for uuu

So far I have reviwed movies and series of these countries: Japan, Korea, Thailand, China and Taiwan.

 I'll be reviewing as I find important titles to comment on.

Obs: The list ends at the last movie/series rated (1 to 10 stars). The ones with 0 stars will be reviwed in the future.

°Up to interpretation "tag": not comproved/cannon couples. May have some romantic content but still questionable.

May have some grammar mistakes, i'm not fluent at english.

    Korean Movie - 2016

    9.5

    One of my favorites movies of all the time, ahgassi is a movie of great photography and ambiance as well as his soundtrack and script.

    Written by the same creator of Old Boy (another acclaimed and award-winning film), you can often see similarities between the two. However, both are very unique in its way.

    Warning: Gore, soft-core, child abuse and suicide.

    I went to see this movie because I'm a big fan of some people called "femme fatale". What was I waiting for? One of those action movies that contains good fights but a mediocre story. MAN, I WAS SO WRONG

    Although the story is confusing, is very rich. Believe it is worth it to watch again understand all details. But, it is not a seven-headed animal that a person who is already used to this kind of narrative will not understand.
    The acting is very good, a point of involvement with the characters.
    TW: The movie is very gore, I do not recommend watching who is sensitive to this kind of thing. There may also be some triggers.
    The only point I thought could have been further developed is the idea of moving the camera from first person to third person and vice versa. Because it is an action movie, it looks the same as an FPS game, so those who are not used to it have an easy headache. I also didn't understand what drove the direction of stopping the US - at certain key points in history.

    Korean Movie - 2012

    Up to interpretation

    Taken place in 1991 when the two koreas "became one" in name of sports (more precisely table tennis).

    To be honest movies about sports in general are not the type that catches my attention, yet this one surprised me a lot.

    The main plot tells the story of two women one from south korea and the other from north korea, leaders of each team.  It tells in an interesting and fun way the differences of each country, either their behavior or beliefs.

    Its really nice to watch and its a great story about union, even more touching because portraits a post-war union.

    And (my opinion) its pretty much gay

    Side story (appears in one specific episode) S01E11
    This drama "just" showed to South Korea it's first on-screen lesbian kiss (it was really a kiss not one of that weird touch of lips that k-dramas love to show) and almost got cancelled for that (congratulations on your homophobia SK).
    This series is not afraid to show sensitive subjects like abortion, bully, as well as same-sex couples and it's response in form of homophobia.
    Their relationship is super cute and is a "slow burn"  type of.
     One of them is too afraid to suffer the consequences of being a non-het in a homophobic society, so she wants to avoid contact with the another girl as much as possible as soon they began to suspect of them.  The other girl on the other hand is much like fuck this,  we love each other type (And this does not make her suffer less with the consequences (of course), in fact,she was the main target of the bullies.)
    The way they will react to this and the outcome its a spoiler, so I will leave to you find out while watching ;).

    This short film tells the story of an abusive relationship. Things like insecurity, possession, and revenge are some of the things addressed. 

    The bi girl isn't out, she is pressured by the other girl to take sides on a situation involving a man.

    In my opinion, it was clear that many of these problems are caused by the lesbian girl's biphobia and distrust.

  • Life is Peachy

    4.5

    A reeeeally confusing movie. But if you love films that are inspired by the artistic and philosophical part I think this is worth seeing.

    The plot isnt big deal, and the way it is told (with flashbacks) makes it very difficult to understand and follow the timeline.

    Mix the concepts of what is normal and what is insane, often without taking any rational point, just to explore human emotions.

  • Gakko ja Oshierarenai!
    56. Gakko ja Oshierarenai!

    Japanese Drama - 2008, 10 episodes

    4.5

    Its a bait, dont eat it.

    Gakko ja oshierarenai is one of those school series. It proposes to discuss some serious and commonplace problems of adolescence and youth. Abortion, one sided love, bully and being a lgbt are some of the things debated.
    The proposal is great, but the way the plot developed for the lgbt characters was very bad. All the straight couples had a good ending, and they tried to pass the sensation that the gays had one too, but it doesnt work. The series tried to make it look like everything is okay when its not.
    The gay guy ended with the straight girl as a way to forget his love for the bff and start over. The lesbian girl realizes that the other girl never loved her.
    What makes me angry isnt the fact that the gays had a bad ending, but because the series gave hope of real feelings on the part of the straight girl to the les girl and tried to pass that the gay guy now at least likes the straight girl.

    I just HATE this series so much.

    It protraits a abusive relationship, and this isn't the problem (acctually is very important to discuss about toxic/abusive relationships wheter is a homo or het). The issue starts when they didn't get any good conclusions out of that it was just LOOK HOW SHE IS SUFFERING and that was horrible.
    obs: I have the habit to see spoilers before watching the drama to prevent queer baiting and unnecessary stress, but guess what IT DIDNT WORK.

    Warning (If you still wanna check this series regardless my review): Self-harm and suicide attempts, fake love, may increase your blood pressure in 100%  and your rage in 200%, rest in peace.
