Kim Jho Gwang Soo, also known as Peter Kim, is a South Korean film director, screenwriter, film producer, and LGBT rights activist.
Kim was born in Seongbuk District, Seoul. He came out of the closet in 2006 and legally changed his name to Kim Jho Gwang Soo. Kim Jho is one of South Korea’s few openly gay film directors and has been involved in the production of several works with LGBT themes.
He collaborated with director Lee Song Hee Il to produce the 2006 film "No Regret", considered to be "the first real Korean gay feature". In 2008, he directed and wrote his first short film, "Boy Meets Boy" as well as two follow-ups: "Just Friends?" (2009) and "LOVE, 100°C" (2010). His first feature film, "Two Weddings and a Funeral" was released in 2012.
Kim Jho held a public, non-legal wedding ceremony with film distributor David Kim Seung Hwan, who has been his partner since 2004, in Seoul on September 7, 2013, the first of its kind in the country which does not recognize same-sex marriages. The preparations for their wedding and the ceremony itself were the subject of Jang Hee Sun’s 2015 documentary "My Fair Wedding".
