K-Pop’s ‘First Gay Idol’ Releases New Music Video and It’s LIT

April 2, 2019
The 23-year-old soloist dropped the new song on Sunday, the lead track of a self-titled EP that emerged from a crowdfunding campaign last year.
The song, titled “Nar_C,” centers on two lovers of clashing personalities living together for a while — until their relationship becomes toxic and one decides to leave the other.
“There was a boy who fell in love. The boy’s name was Holland, and the boy he loved was Jae Seok,” wrote Holland, whose real name is Go Tae Seob, in an Instagram story.
