The Jungle Book
Chae Yoon-seok, who prefers to go by the name Jungle, is a 36-year-old Korean man living in Seoul, Korea. Born and raised in Busan, Jungle has had to endure discrimination, abuse, and misunderstanding since childhood.
He moved to Seoul in his early 20s. It was less than two years ago that he began performing in drag. His talent did not go unnoticed and he now performs at popular clubs and events in Seoul.
Jungle uses his talent and rising profile to be a role model for younger Koreans struggling with their sexual orientation and to raise awareness of LGBTQIA rights.
