now casting: koreatown reality show
Came across this Craiglist posting... it's a casting call for "interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans," ages 18 to 30, to star in a reality show, apparently in vein of Jersey Shore, The Hills,Real World, etc., following people living and experiencing "the Koreatown life." Do you have telegenic train wreck potential? Apply now! You could be the Asian Snooki:
Casting Asian Americans for reality show (Los Angeles/Hollywood)I'd be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued by the premise of this show. You know "the K-Town life" is totally ripe for the reality show treatment. Hell, I'm surprised this hasn't already been tried before. I'm already imagining the can't-stop-watching train wreck this show has the potential to be.
