The YTF Christmas Party With 8Asians

What is YTF? What does it actually mean? At first when I heard of this “YTF”, I was literally thinking “Why the…Fudge?” Then I’ve come to learn that YTF is a group comprised of some of the biggest YouTube entertainers, that when totaled, their combined members garner over 1.3 billion views and a subscriber base of 8 million fans. Led by Ryan Higa aka NigaHiga and Kevin Wu aka KevJumba, their mission is “to share the group’s personal message of empowerment with its fans.

The philosophy behind YTF – Yesterday, Today, Forever – is that success and happiness in one’s life start with individual choice: Yesterday is in the past. Today you have a choice. Forever is up to you.” The rest of the group comprises of Victor Kim, Chester See, Dominic Sandoval, Andrew Garcia, and JR Aquino.

On December 10th, YTF threw a little Christmas party to celebrate its first-ever Christmas Album, A YTF Christmas, an album consisting of a mix of romantic and comedic songs. The party was held at J Restaurant & Lounge in Downtown LA and I was fortunate to check it out on behalf of 8Asians.

To be honest, the party was a bit of a blur to me but I remember having a lot of fun and getting to meet several YTF members as well as friends and colleagues like Lawrence Kao of Kaba Modern fame, Justin Chon, Skylar Song of Threesome Nightly, the Fung Brothers and so many more. Here are some of the pictures that were taken at the event, courtesy of SnapItStudios.

This might be one of the reasons why the party was a blur to me.

About Edward

Edward Hong is an actor and spoken poet. Passion to make a change in this world through the performing arts and activism defines his ongoing life and it is the struggle against all things unjust that gives him this passion to be one heck of a talkative, stubborn man. It, however, does not mean he strives to be a champion or role model of any community but to be the man who will be honest and say the things nobody will have the balls to say. He is the jester who is outspoken in what he believes in most passionately and therefore cannot be pinpointed that he will do what you expect him to do.
