Wait until you hear who is doing the show! None other thanone of the finest boys on the planet, Tyrese Gibson according to Pop Eater ! Here is the ad that The New York Post, reposted:
“Looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to ‘Jersey Shore,’ ‘Real World,’ ‘The Hills,’ etc. . .” the notice reads.
“We need attractive Asian-Americans with lively, strong and unique personalities between the ages of 18 to 30 with equally interesting life stories and perspectives to share, especially individuals who know about and/or experienced the Koreatown life.”
Casting isn’t limited strictly to Asian-Americans either.
“If you are not Asian but are obsessed with Asian culture or people in some way, email us and please explain,” it said.
