K-Town Meets Reality TV
If you guys have been keeping up with American reality television entertainment (which I usual don’t) you might noticed an upcoming reality show focusing on ASIANS! Yes, that is right Asians in America! It just might be a huge success because it will not be your stereotypical school boy/girl cast of Asians but just the exact opposite, dirty, crazy, drunken Asians. Supposedly the cast was picked up through Craigslist’s ads calling for all attractive Asians to apply.
Also Tyrese Gibson will be co-producing the show. Yes, Tyrese Gibson, the African American R&B singer/rapper, and actor that was in 2 Fast 2 Furious and Transformers. Here was one of the Craigslist posting from earlier this year.
“Tyrese Gibson’s production company HQ Pictures is looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to JERSEY SHORE, REAL WORLD, THE HILLS, etc.. We need beautiful 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.”The funny thing is that you do not even need to be Korean or Asian to be a cast member on the show and already more than half of the cast members are not even Korean, supposedly there is only two Koreans in the cast. Now this show has already been deemed as the “Jersey Shores” for Asians and has all the similarities to the original Jersey Shores. So watch out Asian parents and school boys/girls, you might be in for a big surprise of what young Asian Americans do during the late hours of the weekend and during the week in Los Angeles. I would not be surprise to find some people I know running around on this show doing something crazy. Lets hope this gets aired and does not fail like all the other Asian shows before it because it would be just interesting to watch Asian people make a fool of themselves instead of the typical people we always see on Reality TV shows.
