Holland talks about being the first openly gay K-pop Idol.
He talks about obstacles faced before debut and current difficulties with discrimination.
In SBS PopAsia's interview with Holland, K-pop's first openly gay idol revealed the struggles he's had to overcome from childhood, through to now, to make him a beacon of hope for the Korean LGBT+ community.
Speaking about the lack of Korean celebrities who talk about human rights, he says, "I thought there's got to be someone like me who discloses their sexual identity." He's no stranger to the discrimination that comes with being LGBT+, and he discusses his coming out experience in middle school, when he told close friends he was gay. "I became a victim of school violence after that. They didn't keep my secret. So I was bullied a lot at school. But no one could actually comfort me, not even my parents or friends. Or any public figure," he says.
With this in mind, Holland feels it's important to speak up for others through his music and platform as an idol. "The song ["Neverland"] is for the persons who are having a bad time because of their identity I wanted to comfort them with this song while they're struggling."
