representation in #KPoP
industry ✍ by @khriebu
"The kpop industry has had a lot of its idols support the LGBTQA community; a number of songs throughout the years have had LGBTQA reference and representation.
2017 saw idol #Hansol
coming out publicly as #asexual
and has spoken out against homophobia. 2018 has given the world of kpop their first openly #gay
debut idol @holland_vvv
, with his debut track 'Neverland'. The kpop industry encourages a lot of skinship among its idols, only to cater to their fans (skinship- lovery dovey fanservice of boy-boy, girl-girl members in kpop groups). An idol openly announcing his #sexuality
was unheard of; the reaction of knetz towards Holland was outpour of support, especially because his debut m/v was rated R due to an intimate kiss scene and other m/v's with opposite sex couples are rated pg13. #Netizens
criticised broadcast stations for labelling the content as explicit.
Kpop as a #genre
puts out amazing m/v's, and its impressive how the new age idols are more open to express themselves, and write music which are very honest and supportive of the LGBTQA."
