Holland

There is a new idol in South Korea, and his name is Holland. He is the first gay kpop idol. He has recently debuted with the song “Nederland,” and the main idea he has said was to make kids feel comfortable with themselves. However, this music video is rated with 19+ age restriction because it features a gay couple/kiss. He is still an openly gay kpop idol, living in South Korea, even with all the backlash he has received about the music video and himself.

Many people are fans of Holland now. He is a clear role model for being true to himself, and the fans are proud of him for staying so strong throughout this whole thing. Holland said in an interview that when he came out to his friends, he thought that things would be fine. They were all in middle school at the time and he told just his close friends. But they were untrustworthy because they thought it was disgusting and told everyone in school. Holland ended up being a serious victim of bullying and was really depressed.

Now that he is in the music industry, he has to do everything by himself; nobody in the music industry so far wants to work with a gay man in South Korea. So, Holland does all of his song making and promoting. He has said that his main goal is to stay true to himself and to make others feel included and accepted; he just wants to make people happy with his music. Holland has received so much positive feedback, considering he had to promote for himself, and many people are saying they are proud of him and that they feel more represented.
