Gayspeak: 커밍아웃 (Coming out)

:
I’m back! Vacation was great, but I’m happy to be in Seoul. I’m quite exhausted from 회식 last night, so this post is going to be short. It was a gathering of the men in our office and we went out for dinner. I had a bit too much soju at 1 차, a beer too many at 2 차, played one of the worst billiard games of my life at 3 차, drank a bunch of 소맥 (soju and beer) at the 4th place and ended up with just two co-workers at 5 차. 헐. It was probably one of the drunkest nights of my life. And when I drink, I tend to come out.

This is pretty much the same as the English expression. Last night I told my co-worker that I was gay, but I don’t know if he remembers. At my last job, I told my co-workers after a couple bottles of soju and all was fine. I’d imagine it would be a little less cool with my boss though…

커밍아웃 했어? Have you come out?

I got the above picture at Chingusai, which has a bunch of coming out stories available on their website. If you can read Korean, enjoy ^^
