'Is the Ktown Reality Show Cast Douchey Enough?'
The answer to the above question is: MAYBE. (Although that guy on the far left with the 2002 Justin Timberlake look is making it easier to say YES.)
Perhaps the main question should be: What possessed R&B sensation Tyrese Gibson to create a reality show based on Korean Americans?
I am not offended — or maybe I should be. I just think it’s damn funny. What’s even funnier was the application for the aforementioned reality show. With questions like: “Have you ever been arrested and/or charged with a crime? If so, what was it for?” and “Do you drink alcohol? If so, how often do you drink and how much? How do you act when drunk?” At least it didn’t have any questions like “Are you good at math?” and “Do you know any form of martial arts?”
Nonetheless, we all know what this is trying to duplicate: Jersey Shore. As I said, my inner militant Asian should have fists of fury over this ordeal, but I am kind of excited with morbid curiosity. This is the opportunity for Asian Americans to be exploited in a reality show with the best of them. It is an opportunity for Asian Americans to stand up and say, “We can be douchey too!”
