  • Pan!c on says:

    i really hope to see eugene write some type of series that displays a genuine depiction of asain Americans

  • eric says:

    this was a day after my birthday

  • Namjoon’s Cocoa says:

    I don’t get it.. I want Eugene to talk more about the Asian discrimination. I had no clue this should be known more of how they are being treated.. I always thought they were treated with royalty because they are always seen as the smartest. I never knew this and it hurts knowing nowzz

  • Stranger ? says:


  • Kpopasian girl893 says:

    Eugene your a god in the Asian world 🗺 ❤️

  • Kpopasian girl893 says:

    And in all world 🗺 ❤️

  • Dai Drawings and Animation says:

    Eugene is a snacc

  • Valerie Hagenaars says:

    346 missed the like button, are they really that blinded after seeing him voor 7 min?

  • Tandile Vuyo says:

    Hearing him speak about subconsciously writing white characters really got to me, because as a writer, I remember writing something. Then later realising that a majoroty of my characters are white. Then I would wonder why…
    Its mostly because of the media Im consuming as well.

    Now I’ve acknowledged my faults, and Im diversifying my characters

  • KatieMay says:

    He doent think he’s hot? Wow I’m shook

  • Silverstorm 3010 says:

    Is he half american half chinese?

  • nathan cha says:

    Gosh, this was beautiful to watch ♡♡♡ what a talented beautiful human being indeed. Eugene is such a massive inspiration not just in doing what he does but also phrasing it so elaborately & being so fierce and fantastic about representation. ♡ so much hope for the future thanks to this.

  • Luciana Borba says:

    Eugene should have a podcast

  • MIDOGALI says:

    Terrible hair

  • ice cream says:

    i literally just typed ‘eugene lgbt’ to see what sexuality he is

    • XxShippingMyTearsxX says:

      ice cream what sexuality is be

    • XxShippingMyTearsxX says:


    • ice cream says:

      @XxShippingMyTearsxX he always avoids giving a straight answer but we do know he isn’t straight. ♡

  • Ramparat says:

    this was not his life story, this was his views on representation of minorities in the media; good video but clickbait bro- I wanted to see Eugene cry

  • Daddy AF says:

    There is definitely a problem in our culture if someone with Eugene’s looks, body, style, charm and voice isn’t a Hollywood box office leading man.

  • Stephanie C. says:

    Eugene is admirable from brain to butt

  • hehe nice says:

    this video is even sweeter every time i remember to watch this

  • Kamva says:

    My fav Try guy

  • Kamva says:

  • Beth L says:

    2018 anyone????

  • Vanni V. says:

    I feel high….

    • Keilisa White says:

      Vanni V. Hahha I am.


  • Shinnosuke Nauhara says:

    But can I propose him???

  • louiethemouseful says:


  • David Kelly says:

    He’s incredibly handsome and smart. I just wish he wasn’t so obsessed with identity politics. Hopefully one day we won’t “identify” as anything and realize we are all just people.

  • Oliver Matelske says:

    E U G E N E

    Y O U

    A R E

    S E X Y.

  • Dominique McQueen says:

    I need to find a way to quit Eugene… I’m converging on obsessing. More than his beauty, it’s his open candor and explorative spirit. Ugh I just can’t…

  • LivingDew says:

    You’re Amazing Eugene!

  • KK_ROBLOX 15 says:


  • Peyton Nast says:

    3:11 I do

  • brxead says:

    As a fellow asian,who has grown up with little to no asian representation in the media,I am simply here to say REPRESENTATION MATTERS (oh,and I’m very proud of Eugene for representing the asian community!)

  • okana says:

    Eugene is Fine asf 😂❤️🔥

  • Ultimate death says:


  • ChimChim of BTY says:

    Eugene reminds me a lot of Min Yoongi… he has that determination to succeed and he’s very, I don’t know how to say it, perhaps rude? But not exactly. More closed up and rebellious kind of personality? If you know who Yoongi is I hope you get what I mean 😂

  • Brittany Peek says:

    Woah, what.

  • Shelby Grace says:

    So I found the answer to my question, I think….. so is Eugene Pansexual??? Or the worlds best straight ally??? I don’t care! He is a part of the lgbtq+ community!

  • Satsuki Nakamura says:

    Asian power right there👍👍

  • EmmyPopSVlog s says:


  • Emma Cook says:

    wow I love him

  • Emma Cook says:

    Eugene, you need to go and collect your son, Fredric Chen, for he is having a crisis

  • Yoshi Playz says:

  • Kashalakasha says:

    God I love Eugene

  • InsideTheHeadOfMe says:

    Physical attractiveness aside, I think it’s Eugene’s confidence that accelerates his charisma, as if though it were his glamour or “sexyness” that captivate people.

  • GracefulDanny says:

    He gives dom top vibes I’m here for it.

  • Dolls Around The World says:

    When Eugene said the other guys were his best friends I almost cried because he FINALLY admitted it

  • Sub PewDiePie says:

    He was the hottest guy at buzzfeed what how could eugene not see himself like that btw is it just me who doesn’t watch buzzfeed no more

  • molly finney says:

  • Sydney Van says:

    Glad to see not just an Asian American, but an Asian American from a small town represent!!
    It’s a different experience being Asian in middle America vs being Asian in San Jose or Monterey Park…
    So happy we got a man in the game, and Eugene Lee Yang at that.

  • - maja says:
