Transgender rights in Korea

As I gear up for possible business opportunities in South Korea, I came across this article, posted on the forum over at the en(Gender) website. The legal system is struggling to come to grips with transgender issues, as more and more people come out, and go through sexual reassignment.

Whatever happens in the Korean legal system and society will have a significant impact on me, as I seek my business opportunities there.

Korea's conservative Confucian and Christian traditions are making change difficult, but it appears that the worst offenders have moved to the "God-fearing" United States over the years - making things better in Korea but worse for me.
