Korekiyo Shinguji is a student trapped in the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles and forced to take part in the Killing School Semester. In his Love Suite event during the Love Across the Universe bonus mode, he makes some suggestive comments towards Shuichi Saihara and it is heavily implied that they have sex. However, Shuichi takes on Korekiyo’s “ideal” in this event, who is a person who has never tried BDSM before. The gender of Korekiyo’s ideal is not revealed, so the queerness within this scene comes from the fact that Shuichi is taking on that role. Korekiyo has been queerly read by fans as bisexual because of this scene (as seen in the Trivia section of his page on the Danganronpa Fandom Wiki).
This leads to a classification of Queerly Read for Korekiyo, as there is no way of knowing the exact gender of his ideal.
