I feel like people who aim to get quick fame strictly out of vanity and have no sense of drive or passion generally seem like the lonliest people in the end. It's like...they're trying to fill up emptiness with artificial gain. This just seems like what Edward is to me. Idk him personally, obviously, but he seems super shallow and that's just not gonna get him far. 

 

He is very shallow if he only uses people to gain fans. You never see him say stuff like, of Ivan Lam and I went and got coffee the other day and talked or when i am going to Seoul im gonna hang out with Edward. even during the interactions it looks and feels scripted. and what personality of his shows is just boring.

Back! Long time no see. I have obsessive tendencies s that only last for short periods of time so I forgot about Edward but I have updates! *note all this is speculation based off social media stuff, i'm not claiming to have ever even MET edward zo let alone know anything about him for a fact*

 

Someone asked how I could tell he's gay? Gaydar. When you know, you just know. But I think the more accurate version of his sex life and orientation is the asexual "human shield" user type someone mentioned. I think that he will pick anyone he needs, male or female, to step on to get a little higher up the latter. He prob doesn't disclose his sexuality because he feels he can use his appeal to both genders to get things. There are old livestreams of him if you search from his EARLY YT that's now deleted where he asks girls for money (donations) basically and in exchange he offers to call them on the phone. He's super flirty with them and a lot of them seem to be very young. I will not post it here because he obviously reads this @ [email protected] clasic narcissist. But it's out there if you search. REALLY creepy, but I could see it happening in 2013 ish before the me-too movement had us really LOOKING for weirdos and creeps. 

 

I investigated more into his social media history. He's been using follow-unfollow bots since he opened his instagram pretty much. If you look at his history, it fluctuates by thousands in very short time periods which indicates he's following literally thousands of ppl then unfollowing them often. He also likes to bait ppl with giveaways and "model contests" to follow him. He recently stopped using follow-unfollow bots so I'm sure he'll probably throw some shade about this because he seems pre-occupied with reading about himself quite often, but the wayback machine and social blade don't lie honey. Plus there are ppl in this thread's start even confirming he followed just to unfollow, as well as comments on Edward Avila's youtube video bashing the f*ck out of Edward Zo for follow-unfollow use and being a general social climber creep. 

 

I forget how long ago it was, but I saw on his instagram he had AN ENTIRE F*CKING FIT about the post I made about him. He didn't address it directly because I suppose he didn't want ppl to go find it. He went on this whole tyrade about "gossip" and "cowards" lmao. It was really grade A narcissist stuff, I wish I took screenshots but I didn't think it was going to escalate as far as it did! A girl in his comments posted that ppl basically get talked about all the time and it's up to us to have positive self-worth not to worry about it. EDWARD WENT OFF!!!! He posted paragraphs of reply and basically said he had "a friend" who committed suicide because of hate comments. It was obviously a lie, because who would even say that about a functional adult lol it's very rude to hear about someone's death and boldly declare it was because of "gossip". On top of that, if you had a friend who died, you would have said something when it happened not suddenly arguing with some random girl. And on top of all of those holes in the story, WHO? We would know if another influencer just up and died. Of course though, he'll make anyone who questions his lies out to be a villain.

Back to the drama, edward is petty AF, he literally posted the girls comment in his story then posted all these black screen messages where he was like "Oh yeah? Tell that to my dead friend!". The girl replied something I don't remember but she was unbothered and kept it positive. Other ppl went to her comment to replying stuff like "I don't think that's what she's saying" and stuff like that. EDWARD DELETED ALL OF IT! He left ONE of the girls comments and his reply to make it look like a clap back completely out of the original context when really there was a whole convo lmfao. I DM'd the girl and a bunch of ppl who had their messages deleted, they all were surprised he's such a jerk and unfollowed.  

My only thought (besides the fact it is so hilarious how easily triggered narcissist are) is how f*cked up it is how far some ppl will take things just to "win" arguments. Some ppl will say things just to make you feel like you can't ask further questions. Onision, another narcissist, got a bad book review on youtube and went from "Look at this fiction I wrote" to "YOU'RE CRITICIZING MY DEAD FRIEND." It's weird how ppl with personality defects will just throw out fictional suicides, dead parents, cancer treatment, and all that... like stuff people just shouldn't joke about. That really happens to ppl and its horrible, yet ppl like Edward will cry wolf for sympathy as emotional manipulation. All just to get the last word in a fight on the internet????? That's so terrible imo. 

As of right now I don't think he has a sugar daddy. But I do think he was supporting himself during his first couple of years in LA as some kind of sex worker, but that's just pure speculation as is everything i type lol. I don't even know edward, I only know what I can find online~~~ I would be VERY interested in anecdotes from anyone who knew him as a part of Magcon to see if any of them knew him prior or know who his real parents are or who he was living with (because he isn't from LA, he made it very clear he moved there- although i'm sure he can come up with some fiction now haha). It's not that it's impossible for him to legally work in LA in 2012- but if you look at the time... he paid for a nose job and a full set of veneers within 2 years, on top of having a bunch of free time to be on these "acting" projects. He seemed to start working at some coffee shop later around the time he launched his hair line (which i can't find a manufacturer for so it seems to be prepackaged product in small containers from DTLA). If you know of a way a gay 20 y.o. in Los Angeles manages to make 30,000 USD of extra income for cosmetic procedures... I'm all ears. But that's what I think.

Hi! Okay, so I did a LOT of digging here... WHO IS EDWARD ZO? I mean in reality? Does ANYONE actually know him?

 

I first saw his stuff in a random youtube pop up near Edward Avila and skipped him years ago but today I watched one of his videos and became very curious. That led me to go to his instagram and other social media. That raised HELLA questions and led me to spending hours like a crazy person doing research because I have obsessive tendencies @[email protected] WHO IS HE? My theory so far is that 'Edward Zo' is not even his real name; somehow he has managed to create an ENTIRELY fake online persona for 6+ years now. 

 

First of all, it isn't possible that his name is ACTUALLY Edward Zo because there isn't a single public record under that name in the Los Angeles, CA area matching a possible age range for him (no one 18 - 30 by that name). If he was ever paying rent or utilities in LA or even so much as applied for a credit card, the information would be available in the public domain in some capacity. Before anyone starts saying "maybe he is just private" noooo. I am private LOL. He would have to be in the literal CIA to erase himself that thoroughly. So Edward Zo must be a fake name, and it makes me wonder what his real name is?

 

Secondly, he is DEFINITELY not 18. He was posting on Lookbook.nu back in 2012 and promoting a youtube channel, IG, Twitter, and personal website WAY back then! I verified the website in the Wayback Machine, and yep he was (just like he is now) promoting himself as a lifestyle brand, up and coming actor, etc. since January of 2013. In the six years that he has been doing so, he's scored extremely minor roles in maybe a total of three projects? The biggest of which was ABC Family's (now FreeForm's) 'Switched at Birth". He claims to have attended a prestigious acting school based in LA on imbd but there is no record of this happening, not a single picture of website link with his name in it, no blog post about it from his old websites (which began as a blogspot), and no mention of him on any of the school's social media- it seems to be a lie. The minimum age Edward Zo could possibly be based on all of this is 23. I've seen posts saying he was in Magcon which seems to be true, but if it is the case he was in it for a VERY short amount of time. To top off the creep factor... I could not find a SINGLE person who even as much as claims to be a friend of his. Not a single "high school" picture (more support that his name is fake) and not a single picture of him with friends/family. It's literally as if he just bursts into existence in EXACTLY January of 2012????????

 

So basically, what freaks me out is this guy LITERALLY just appeared out of nowhere almost exactly the same as he is six years later. He was doing "giveaways" and sponsored post as early as 2013, fyi. Ever since 2012 he's been posting about going to auditions for major networks in LA, and the imbd page he had is one he made for himself in 2011 with credits from an independent short skit called Good Samaritans. I heavily suspect he was 18 in 2011/2012 which would make him 24 now. 

 

He's definitely gay, I can tell that much. Gay and manipulative. He's a pretty open neg kinda guy. A lot of his YT videos start with the this is what I'm going to do for you (as if it's a favor to you) and this one little thing is "all" what I want in return (massive eye roll). He openly baits underaged girls but it's kinda obvious imo he wants the attention and isn't interested in women at all (or really even men). As other comments have stated, his strategy since 2015 has been to comment on tons of influencers and celebs IG and try to get collabs with them. He even went out with Nikita Dragun (she's a TS lgbt themed youtuber who is always thirsty because she can't get a boyfriend, often flirts with boys aggressively). I won't go over everything, but it's clear he isn't interested in dating or having a relationship with anyone male or female and he is only interested in using sex appeal as a form of control. I've seen comments and rumors suggesting he's even had his fans (a strong majority of which are girls 13-17 who like kpop) "donate" money to him before he had a business.  

 

Regarding "how does he make money/is he rich?" stuff.... well first of all, I will say that people in the LA area are very good at putting on a front and there is a LOT of fake designer stuff available. He is often wearing designer goods like Versace robe/underwear, Hermes bracelets, etc that I suspect are rented from those designer rental online sites. The way he seems to make money is by doing sponsored instagram posts and youtube videos. His youtube channel, according to social blade couldn't be making more than 19k a year (more likely to be around 10k/year) but every video is sponsored and sponsorships pay a couple thousand for ads like that. Prior to getting all these sponsorships though, THAT is what I find suspicious because somehow he was paying the rent in LA for over 3 years with no job. In addition, he doesn't 'live' anywhere. He moved TO LA but from where is a mystery that will probably be covered up in a lie when he reads this stuff while googling himself. The most suspicious thing ever; a sign of someone who 'moves from place to place'. I highly suspect he is a sex worker or some kind of male escort. Whatever it is he does and whatever his real name is, he does a BOMB job cleaning up the internet and "branding" himself because the 'Edward Zo' thing is the literal definition of a fictional online presence that isn't reality.

Wrapping a long ass post up:

He is not an actor in any serious capacity... and frankly, six years and no regular re-occuring role as a character? He must really suck at acting (not to be mean, just keeping it real). He is a #sponsorship person now and that is a legitimate source of income but it doesn't explain how he's been making money to eat and live in LA since 2011. His parents are not rich nor are they celebrities of any sort; Edward Zo is likely not his real name at all. He has BEEN fame hungry- at this point he is fame STARVING because he's had an imdb and facebook fanpage since he only had 500 followers from posting on Lookbook.nu. Is a manipulative creep that likes Pick up artist style weird shit. Probably some kind of sex worker.

I first saw his video about Death Note a couple of years ago maybe? He seemed pretty cool then, but looking back he’s just a creep. I saw a load of his comments on people’s insta posts so came over here to see if he had a thread and I’m glad he does

I attempted to look up his name and alternative names that he could have, and found NOTHING. NOT. A. SINGLE. THING. (Obviously all of this Edward Zon crap comes up, but that is just a persona, I am convinced) 

Just thinking about it makes me feel sick, it makes me shiver. It feels really sinister even though it probably isn’t anything that crazy. It’s not just about HOW he managed to essentially erase everything about him (pre-Edward Zo era), but WHY he would do something like that. How can someone who is quite well known, have ZERO substantial information about them somewhere on the internet. There is no way in hell that he is 18, NO WAY. 

Away from all of the promotions, the Instagram posts, and the YouTube collabs it’s like he has no personality, he’s just a blank canvas - reminiscent of some kind of mannequin. Even though he gives me the serious creeps, I have this weird need to know what he’s really all about.

Like a previous person in this thread said, he just pops into existence at some point. This stuff is just weird.

     34 sounds right. I am honestly not surprised he would be this age, and being a pedo with younger girls

he's everywhere but no one knows anything substantial about him that's creepy

he only got fame from probably stalking #asiangirl during the early instagram days, commenting and then given the pass because his face was attractive

i also noticed he comments a lot on fruitypoppin's stuff and girl barely just stepped foot into university

this man needs to calm down

-

edit: he says he's all about asian representation and lives in LA..... does anyone know if he has ever tried to work with any other asian youtubers over there??

I remember Edward from being on Soompi back in 2008/2009 and he made kept preaching a "caveman regimen" that made his skin clear (basically washing with only water and not using any product).

Yeah, his face has changed so much. Definitely has had his eyelids done and maybe experiments with filler/Botox.
