Earlier this month, it was revealed that a Swedish "bishounen" (beautiful young boy) named "Yohio" will be making his debut in Japan this spring.

Yohio currently plays for a Swedish visual kei band called "Seremedy", and he became interested in Japan after getting into anime as a kid. Some of his heroes are Japanese Visual Kei musicians, like Gackt.

Visual kei ("visual style") appeared in Japan in the 1980s and is marked by elaborate costumes and make-up.

While he might look like just a pretty face, the kid has talent. Check out Yohio shredding. His six-track "mini-debut" album drops Apr. 25.
