Kim Jho Gwang Soo, also known as Peter Kim, is a South Korean film director, screenwriter, film producer, and LGBT rights activist.
Kim was born in Seongbuk District, Seoul. He came out of the closet in 2006 and legally changed his name to Kim Jho Gwang Soo. Kim Jho is one of South Korea's few openly gay film directors and has been involved in the production of several works with LGBT themes.
He collaborated with director Leesong Hee-il to produce the 2006 film No Regret, considered to be "the first real Korean gay feature." In 2008, he directed and wrote his first short film, Boy Meets Boy as well as two follow-ups: Just Friends? (2009) and LOVE, 100°C (2010). His first feature film, Two Weddings and a Funeral was released in 2012.
Kim Jho held a public, non-legal wedding ceremony with film distributor David Kim Seung-hwan (his partner since 2004), in Seoul on September 7, 2013, the first of its kind in the country which does not recognize same-sex marriages. The preparations for their wedding and the ceremony itself was the subject of Jang Hee-sun's 2015 documentary My Fair Wedding.
