Applications for Sex Change Rising

A growing number of transsexuals are applying to courts for a gender change on their family registration records, following the Supreme Court’s legal recognition of sex changes in June.

According to the Supreme Court yesterday, 17 transsexuals have applied to local courts nationwide to change their genders registered in “hojok,” or family registration records, for the 70 days since the top court’s ruling on June 22.

The highest court ruling was the first in South Korea that ruled in favor of a sex change on official records.
