Jasmine Sean Rideout is a 23-year-old (b. Nov 19, 1994) Canadian woman who gained social media attention for her constant yellow facing, lying, fetish for Korean men, and now for impregnating herself because she wanted a half-Korean baby.
Jasmine initially popped up in the General "non-Asians pretending to be Asian" thread for claiming to be a Eurasian plus-size model named Yang Jeonghee (양정희), however many could see that she obviously looked like a complete white woman. This was proved when her childhood pictures were posted with her parents and grandmother that showed that her family is clearly white:
Despite this, she is very adamant about herself being a "mixed Eurasian model" as she constantly tags her images under "#eurasian", "#halfkorean" and many other half-race claims to get attention (ex. half Russian, half German, half British, half Irish, half Chinese, half Thai, etc).
Additionally, she tags herself in the Korean language; but since her language skills are nonexistent, a lot ends up as broken/incorrect words, such as tagging herself as "#한국어" (Korean language) instead of "#한국인", or using incorrect terms like "#하프한국" instead of "#혼혈".
Apart from constant race faking, she also made sob stories about her family situation to explain her background.
To fund her trips to Korean, she had even created a GoFundMe, but after the GoFundMe failed, she turned to Patreon with claims she has never been to Korea and wanted to be reunited with her "homeland". In her Patreon, she used mental illness as an excuse for her trip to "explore more of her Korean side" to make herself feel better. However, a quick glance at her Instagrams photos proved she's already been there multiple times and it was a complete scam.
At one point, Jasmine even posted to an "expats in Korea" Facebook group where she revealed that she wanted to move to Korea in May 2018 and had already lived there for 4 months back in 2017.
An older Instagram description claimed she was working in China as a teacher:
Now, flash forward to August 2018 and things took a very serious turn when Jasmine announced she was 8 weeks pregnant with a "mixed half-Korean" baby.
It was already known that Jasmine sees many hookups from images she posted of herself and men, and also a MeetMe account.
She even changed her Instagram description to "mixed mother and future mom to beautiful mixed baby" and uses tags such as "#halfkoreanbaby, #mixedbaby. #asianbaby" to describe her child. Furthermore, Jasmine even said "of course this sweet bundle was made in Korea".
Turns out, Jasmine is on social welfare and is left as a single mother...
Not only that, but over the past year she has admitted to being on 10 plane flights between Canada, Korea, and China all of which adds up to over 20,000 CAD spent on travelling as a sexpat to satisfy her fetish for Korea and Korean men.
Jasmine selfishly says "No matter what the parents wanted at the time they both need to claim responsibility. Man didn't want a baby well he should have put one on." while completely ignoring the fact that it always takes 2 people and not 1, and now puts the man at fault for getting her pregnant.
Onto her pregnancy arc:
Just weeks into her pregnancy, on Facebook, she shares her thoughts on planning to return to Korea as soon as the baby is born and states she will frequently take the child back and forth Toronto and Seoul. Not to mention, she plans to educate the child within Korea as she believes the Korean education system is superior to Canadian education. Additionally, due to the father's absence, she will herself exclusively teach the child Korean culture (and now claims to be Chinese/Irish through her own father).
In a belly bump picture, Jasmine says "Getting pregnant in #southkorea was of course new" and refer to the unborn baby as "my sweet mixed girl".
Following this is just more nonsense and claims about her "Korean heritage" and "Korean mother", such as being confused if she should use Korean age counting or International age counting, and making up fake memories between her and her absent mother.
In January 2019, on Instagram, Jasmine she posted an image revealing that she is unfortunately dealing with a high risk pregnancy caused by a two-vessel cord. Through some internet searching, it can be easily found that one of the risk factors for developing a two-vessel cord is being white.
Despite this, at 8 months pregnant, she worries about her future dating prospects and says she is only attracted to and interested in having Korean partners. Here, she discloses that the baby's father was a friend of hers and abandoned her after she revealed her pregnancy to him.
Anyway, the very same month, Jasmine packed a baby hospital bag ready to deliver prematurely and went inpatient into a hospital shortly after.
On February 5, she announced that she went into labour and the day after, despite the risks, she gave birth to healthy-looking baby girl named Luna Rae Rideout.
Already, Jasmine is found to have posted into a Facebook group called "Babies, Wobblers, and Toddlers in Korea" asking for advice on how to celebrate the baby's 100th-day celebration (baekil; 백일) and is looking for baby hanboks. She justifies this by saying "I really want to make sure I get her to experience her Korean side as well".
Despite nonstop claiming that she is half-Korean and half-other, she goes onto claiming that her baby is also half-Korean and half-Canadian, even if it doesn't add up.
In March 2019, Jasmine revealed that she had booked tickets for a flight to Korea in September and will be taking her child with her. Her plans are to attempt to move and settle in Korea.
Sometime after, Jasmine created a public social media account for her child despite being only a few weeks old (@lunaraerideout). In the account bio, it is stated that she's a 'Baby Model' and 'Baby Actress' and is available for booking and inquiries through her very own email address.
She also uploaded an image where she poses while holding her child like a doll and revealed in the caption that despite being a less than 2 months old, she already had the baby booked for a commercial fitting job and also filmed a commercial.
On Facebook, she comments that she has been negligent and on some days she forgets to pump to breastfeed the baby and hence only use formula. She also at one point uploaded a picture that showed the baby in thin, short clothing as the baby's visible skin showed signs of peripheral cyanosis due to the weather outside in Toronto being only 8C (46F).
As of May 7, 2019, she celebrated her child turning 3 months old.
