Holland shared his recent experience with violence, condemning hate crimes.

On the 6th, he uploaded two photos of himself and wrote what happened to him last night on his social media. The photos show injuries to his nose and face.

The post reads as follows:

“Last night, I walked around Itaewon with my manager and a friend. Suddenly, a stranger approached us and hit me in the face twice, calling me ‘a dirty gay’. Now I have an injury on my face, and I’m heading to the hospital. This is a hate crime. It’s absolutely not acceptable to harass people for their sexuality.” He added, “This just happened yesterday in the middle of the streets, and it clearly shows that gay rights are not of any major importance in South Korea. I reported it to the police, and I hope they will take this case seriously.”

He closed off his statement by saying, “This should never happen to anybody in this world. I hope the world will become a better place for minorities, children and LGBTQ people so that peace and love will win over violence and hate.”

Holland has recently starred in BL series Ocean Likes Me.
