Jason Mraz on Monday (24 November) spoke up for LGBTI rights while on tour in conservative Korea.
During an interview on the popular JTBC News Room telecast, conversation turned to human rights.
'You openly support for same-sex marriage. What would you say to the opposites?,' asked leading news anchor Sohn Suk-hee.
'We're always evolving, ever-changing, growing, expanding, and to treat lesbians and gays... as second-class citizens, as non-equals, is following old education, is following old tradition,' Mraz said.
