We all know London as a metropolitan, diverse and ambitious destination that almost all tourists want to visit in their lifetime.

Who is he? What is Gainz Daily? And why should you know about it, if you are into fitness? He is an ex-professional football player, personal trainer, and entrepreneur.

We decided to explore the ways other East Asian girls here in London have been hyper-sexualised in such ways and also get into the minds of the men, for an insight into what seems to trigger this attraction to “Asian women” in particular. The East Asian girls seemed to be in consensus that there is a certain fantasy and fetishism based on these pre-existing knowledge of sexualised Asian girls in the media. But we were surprised when we got to talk to the men about this issue. Produced by: Erin Zhang & Jin Lee
