1. France: thousands of people from the Chinese community protest over jump in ethnic attacks (France 24)

2. CL x Christina Paik | The Baddest Female of Asia (88 Rising)
Analogue photographer Christina Paik photographs S.Korean singer-songwriter-rapper CL. We haven’t fact-checked if they’re really the baddest of all the Asia, but they definitely look cool and tough in the gritty blocks of Seoul.
3. Life Stories: Buzzfeed’s Eugene Lee Yang (NBC Asian America)
In the Holywood film culture where Asian men are most poorly represented, Eugene Lee Yang made his name as ‘the sexy one’ on Buzzfeed. One good lesson about how to support minority? Don’t assume. Just ask her/him, ‘Can you do something?’ The answer is probably yes.
4. Hong Kong election: Anti-China activists gain foothold (Al Jazeera English)
Even in western media, well, especially in the bewildered western media, the ratio of China-related news is rising. The recent Hong Kong election is in the middle of much attention. How do you think the result will change Hong Kong and its relationship with the mainland?
5. Kylie Jenner Transformation Make-up (PONY Makeup)
Pony did it again. Five months after her unbelievable Taylor swift transformation make up, she became Kylie Jenner. It’s not something we can try every day (or even once), but it’s hell of a fun to watch.
6.K-Pop Stars Surprise K-Pop Fans ft. GOT7 (Buzzfeed Video)
Even if you’re not a fan of K-Pop, it’s just adorable and happyness inducing to watch fans bursting into pure joy meeting their idol for real. If you’re a fan of K-Pop, just imagine. It could happen to you, too.
7. Top 10 Must Read Books By American Comedians (MsMojo)
Did you know Mindy Kaling, Aziz Ansari, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey have all written their own books? Oh, you already own them all and read each 10 times? Well, good for you.
8. Single by 30 | Official Trailer | YouTube Red Original Series
Two friends make a pact to marry each other if they remain single by 30. We know how this story goes and ends. It’s not rare to see a romantic comedy based on the idea that 30 is horrible, lonely, and devastating age. But it’s super rare to see an Asian guy as the lead of such romantic comedy. Hurray!
