Gay K-pop star Holland’s new song features steamy make out

Two guys kissing in new music video for Holland's new song I'm Not Afraid

Openly gay K-pop star Holland just released a steamy new music video for his new song I’m Not Afraid.

Dropping yesterday (5 July), it features a steamy gay kiss, as well as a diverse cast of a drag queen, queer people of color and queer women.

But perhaps the most surprising moment comes when Holland grabs one of the men at the party and the two engage in a 15 second-long make out session.

It stands as a real coming out anthem, with the lyrics repeating: ‘I’m not afraid anymore’.

Holland took to Twitter last night to promote the new song, but said YouTube bizarrely gave it an R rating.

He tweeted: ‘On YouTube my new Song #imnotafraid received an R rating. We are trying to figure out what cause of the song receiving the ban is. We’ll figure it out quickly and find a solution.’

He added: ‘I’m really sorry.’

Watch the beautiful music video:

Holland released his first single Neverland earlier this year, which featured another gay romance.

The lyrics in the music video are: ‘We are young and I love you,’ as he’s rolling around in bed with another man.

In a Twitter post, Holland also wrote: ‘Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.’

The 22-year-old also became the first openly gay Korean star to be feature on the Dazed 100 list.

South Korea is an incredibly conservative country when it comes to LGBTI rights. While homosexuality is not a crime, social stigma forces many LGBTI people not to come out.

Just last year, Christian protestors blocked the annual Seoul Pride parade. Thousands of anti-LGBTI campaigners, mostly right-wing and Protestant groups, staged counter protests near Seoul Plaza.

They held large group prayers and loudly sung religious hymns.
