Korea K-Pop Singer Finally Comes out as Gay

Post by fountainhall » Thu Aug 16, 2018 1:44 pm

You'd think that amongst the many thousands of K-Pop singers a few have to be gay. But being a public figure and being gay in such a homophobic country as South Korea must be extremely difficult So well done to 22-year old Holland, a young singer who only made his debut this year and who has come out openly as gay. His video Neverland ended up with a million views on iTunes on its release day. The number of views is now nearer 10 million.

At the end of this article there is a long video with an Australian TV station (very cute interviewer!).

Good for him, although I doubt it shocked most of his fans.

So many of the K Pop Singers are HOT. and some obviously gay.

I think the K Pop bands have as many boy fans as they do girls so coming out really shouldn't be too impacting.

I was in Seoul many times in the 1980s and early 1990s. I never saw one guy anywhere near as cute as the plethora we now see in the boy bands, in the Seoul bars and clubs and just walking down the street. I wonder which came first. The boys starting to take an interest in their looks, or the boy bands leading to a mini-revolution in men's looks and grooming.

The main shopping areas of Seoul are full of shops selling facial products. At least half of the customers are guys!

Again going back to my earlier visits, there were a couple of gay bars I attended and one bathhouse which had an upstairs sleeping area that was to all intents and purposes for sex. None was especially easy to find. I visited them all and cannot recall one Korean guy I really had any interest in! Not even the waiters and porters in the hotels did I find interesting. They just were not nearly as attractive as the Thais, Japanese and Chinese I had more occasion to meet. Now there few I do not find more than attractive!
