Lily J. Lee, the leading Blasian Family YouTuber from Blasian Family Channel (블라시안 패밀리 채널) is branching out. Lily started the Blasian Family Channel in 2008, and has uploaded nearly 900 videos which in total have been viewed over 6 million times since that time. Her channel which primarily focuses on her Blasian family (Kenyan and South Korean) and their adventures has attracted over 27,000 subscribers, more than any other YouTube channel focused on Blasian family topics, and it is steadily growing.
Now Lily is adding a new component to her channel – Lily’s Blasian Dating Show, and it’s available to watch now at the link. In this dating show, Lily will set up Asian and Black singles on blind dates and film them as they meet and go out on early dates. It is a really fun show and viewer comments have been overwhelmingly positive with some saying that Lily’s Blasian Dating Show is breaking down years of misperceptions and negative stereotypes between Asians and Blacks. It’s a really great thing to witness.
Lily’s Blasian Dating Show sets up both Black man, Asian woman (BMAW) couples as well as Asian man, Black woman (AMBW) couples. Season one of the show was shot in Korea and so far has shown 3 Blasian couples, Tyrell and Yeowon, Derek and Ariel, and Anthony and Yeowon. Also there are probably another 3 or 4 episodes to come in season one from Korea. We don’t want to spill the beans and will let you watch the blind dates on your own, but some of the couples work out better than other couples as you would expect, but all of the couples are interesting and entertaining. It’s a really good show!
