Filming has begun on K-town, a Tyrese-produced reality ripoff of Jersey Shore—featuring Asian-Americans instead of guidos—set in L.A.'s Koreatown. Peter Le is already being described as "the Korean Situation." Meet the rest of the cast after the jump.
Le [pictured left] looks to be an upgrade from Sitch, but not in just abs alone—apparently he's a pornstar (whereas Sitch was merely an exotic dancer).
Back in April, Tyrese's production company posted a casting notice on Craigslist:
And this is what they came up with:
Looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to 'Jersey Shore'…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. If you are not Asian but are obsessed with Asian culture or people in some way, email us and please explain.
From the pictures posted on K-town's Twitter, it looks like the show is sticking very closely to the formula established by Jersey Shore: Eight roommates, lots of muscles, lots of booze…
…and family-style ethnic meals.
The show has yet to be picked up by any network. Fingers crossed.
