K-Pop’s First Gay Artist Holland Gives Us a Steamy Debut Video

If the music of Hayley Kiyoko and Troye Sivan had a surrogacy love child in Korea, his name would be Holland and he’d be our new international obsession.

K-pop’s first gay artist just dropped his debut video and it’s all kinds of steamy. We’re talking boy-on-boy cuddles, walks on the beach, and some kissing that borders on HBO after dark. It’s even received a 19+ rating in South Korea, where it was released, which is could be seen as a mildly offensive example of Korea’s attitudes toward queer people or a testament to the video’s sexy moments.

The track entitled “Neverland” is a classic ballad about young love. And that young love is on full display in the video. From the intimate affection in bed to arguments on the beach, it’s a full-on queer K-pop love story, and we’re here for every second of it.

Although Korea may not be totally queer-inclusive, K-pop could be our new favorite form of queer entertainment. Ever since Korean boy band, BTS made an appearance at last year’s Billboard Music Awards, the genre’s homoerotic appeal has us thirsting for more.

Since its release this weekend, Holland’s “Neverland” video has accumulated 2.5 million views. Let’s hope it encourages more queer artists from Korea and the rest of the world to give us some grade-A pop hits in 2018.
