'Youth Generation 2' comes under fire for homophobic content, including likening a lesbian woman to a man

'Youth Generation 2' viewers were heavily disappointed with the show's handling of LGBTQ matters.

The drama centers around 5 girls who are housemates and their various eventful lives. As Hwayoung's character leaves the house, they welcome a new housemate played by Choi Ara. However, Choi Ara doesn't look like the stereotypical girl - she's super tall and dresses somewhat masculine - and the housemates somehow immediately assume she's a lesbian.
