The programme for 'Asian Exposure: East Asian Cinema in a Global Context' symposium later this week at Coventry includes an interesting-looking talk by Angela Kim and Min Kyung Joo (Sungkyunkwan University): ‘Like a Virgin: Looking for the new sexual identity through throwing father.’ Apparently this is a reference to gay ssireum wrestling film Like a Virgin. Sounds like a potential guilty pleasure. #
