Holland is known as the first openly gay K-Pop idol.
Even before his debut, a huge amount of articles and tweets poured out as he received a lot of support.
In a Korean society where homosexuality is still a taboo, Holland unexpectedly prevailed in support of his activities rather than rejection or criticism of coming out.
Billboard said that his debut has further increased diversity in the Korean idol industry as he had publicly revealed that he is gay.
His debut single 'Neverland' is a downtempo ballad R&B song that talks about being able to love someone without being discriminated.
