Gayspeak: 호모힐 (Homo Hill)

:
If you live in Seoul and you’re a gay man, I’m sure you’ve been to the hill. Located right next to Hooker Hill, we affectionately call it Homo Hill. And boy have I had some good nights there (and a few I don’t remember…)

호모힐 (ho-mo-hil)

Pretty easy to understand the origins of this word. In case you don’t know, Homo Hill is located in Itaewon (the main foreign district of Seoul). It tends to be full of younger gay men who are interested in the more international feel / open attitude toward gayness. Probably a better chance to find someone that is interested in non-Koreans than in other gay parts of the city. So, how about a couple of sentences?

호모힐에 가자! Let’s go to Homo Hill!

호모힐에 있는 퀸즈나 소호에 가고 싶니? Do you want to go to Soho or Queen on the Hill?

ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ Happy weekend!
