It's about people who fell in love, and lost love. And that's it.
This is how you can make a story without queer-pandering, showing a positive homosexual representation in 4 different incarnations during your story, and still anger the BL fandom who has their heads so far in the clouds they'll call YoI the second coming and this movie a travesty. This movie is not trying to fulfill your fantasies for a gay couple. We have gay couples in this, and this isn't the magical woman coming along and turning gay people straight like I've seen others claim it is. The only reason our endgame main relationship is heterosexual is because they've been together so long. And even that relationship does not last. It's not about gender. Everyone who dislikes this movie criticizes the ending for out main male love interest not choosing his male lover. But it's not that the movie is shying away from the subject of homosexuality like I too often see in content like this, rather, it shows it very clearly in others and in the dynamic between our main love interest and his love interest. Nothing to do with lady bits winning the day. When you dehumanize your characters solely to their gender to fulfill your own agenda and fantasies, you're not really giving queer representation. This movie didn't end the way you wanted it to but it's NOT a bad representation of the LGBTQIA+ community or how it is received by Korean society. The problem isn't the movie, it's you. This is a story about two people who fall in love with the same person. Notice how I didn't mention gender in this? Because gender doesn't play a role in the key point of the story aside from tackling the subject of how Korean society approaches it. But the story doesn't demonize homosexuality AT ALL. To me, this is far more brilliant than giving us the m/m endgame relationship we "wanted". If this was a cop out story where it skirts around the subject and avoids the gay relationship entirely you'd have a point. But that's not what this is. This is a story about people first and foremost. THAT is some of the best LGBTQIA+ representation I've seen. It's not fulfilling an agenda, it doesn't have a quota it has to meet, it's not trying to give you your gay fantasies. It's about people who fell in love, and lost love. And that's it.
