Lucian Hodoboc (born September 16, 1991) is a Romanian YouTube video maker and personality. He is known on YouTube as LH, the name of his flagship channel, TheLHShowChannel.
On YouTube, LH is known for his random comedy skits and vlogs. He sometimes recites poems and does a capella covers of songs.
Lucian was born in Romania, and suffers from a rare congenital bone illness that has troubled him throughout his entire life. It caused him minor bone deformities and stuned his growth. A recurring theme in Lucian's non-comedy videos has been his struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts or behaviors throughout his life, as well as his OCD, anxiety and thanatophobia.
His parents separated when he was a baby and he was raised by his mother.
Lucian Hodoboc is an Orthodox Christian and a firm believer in The Holy Trinity. He made a video reciting The Lord's Prayer.
Lucian identifies himself as asexual. He has stated that, while he does have romantic crushes on people belonging to both genders, he is repulsed by the idea of sexual intercourse. He is a member of several asexuality forums.
He started making YouTube videos in 2013, but his posting schedule has been erratic due to his health issues. He usually uploads a video every week, but sometimes takes long breaks for several months.
In January 2014, Lucian Hodoboc started an online community called BeautifulForums ( http://www.beautifulforums.co ), a community aimed at helping teenagers and young adults overcome psychological problems (depression, anxiety, self-harm etc.), encouraging a positive outlook on life (the community's motto was: "see the beauty in life!"), and allowing online content creators and artists to promote their works. The site grew decently fast and over the course of three years acquired almost 100,000 posts. However, due to LH being targeted by internet haters and trolls, the site has frequently been under DDoS attacks, and the subject of defamation and ridicule on hate sites. Because of the constant attacks, Lucian decided to shut down the site in November 2016.
Several YouTubers have made fan videos and tributes to Lucian Hodoboc and The LH Show Channel. Some examples are listed below:
