K-Town Asian American Reality TV Show
Asian American reality show K-Town is becoming talk of the town lately. It’s likened to Asian version of Jersey Shore, which I have no clue what it is, but from the promo stills it’s not hard to guess that it’s gonna be greasy and cheesy…
The show (which is not even on broadcast yet) has created plenty of debates… a few are seeing it as a step up of Asian American in the US showbiz for being an Asian oriented show, while some are concerned that it’s stereotyping the Asians. (Check out the 100+ comments at Channelapa if you want to).
Regardless, people love watching b*tchy stuff on reality shows. I mean, most TV viewers would rather watch cat fights or Paris Hilton-ish kinda thing instead of the good kids teaching how to score straight A’s on reality TV show. Ain’t so?
The filming is mainly based at LA’s Koreatown (hence the show name), but the cast are of diverse Asian ancestry. Image from K-Town’s official Facebook.
