It’s happening. Those of you who couldn’t resist your weekly dose of the rowdy, tanned and toned Jersey crowd will soon get a new fix with “K-Town Reality Show.”  The rumors of Tyrese producing an Asian American reality show are proven true, and the cast has been revealed via “K-Town Reality Show’s” Twitter page.  Following in the footsteps of Snooki, The Situation and co. are four guys and four girls—Young Lee, Jennifer Field, Joe Cha, Scarlet Chan, Violet Kim, Peter Le, Steve Kim and Jasmine Chang. Though the show is based in Koreatown, judging by their last names, they seem to be of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese or mixed Asian backgrounds.

The pilot episode was shot over the weekend in LA’s Koreatown, and though no one is quite sure what this new reality show has in store for viewers, the leaked photographs show there’s no denying that it will consist of drinking, partying and you guessed it—drama.

Whether the K-Town Reality Show will become another guilty pleasure or if it will be ridiculed as the poor man’s version of “Jersey Shore,” it’s guaranteed to provide entertainment. Good or bad, the all Asian American cast would be refreshing to see on mainstream television. I don’t know about you, but I know I’ll be tuning in.  What are your thoughts?

  1. […] folks from sea to shining sea! A new Asian American reality show tentatively called, “K-Town Reality Show” is produced by singer/songwriter/actor Tyrese, and is inspired by Jersey Shore. *crickets* […]

  2. D says:

    I’m not sure if I like this concept or not … Jersey Shore is a bunch of dumb idiots who party way too much, and K-Town? I feel like that’s gonna make Asian Americans look disgusting … I don’t know about this.

  3. Hmm says:

    …does anybody else think that this show might possibly be a good thing? This show doesn’t appear to portray Asians as dorky, uptight, and asexual and show them in a young, modern (albeit, being kind of stupid) light? …or maybe, it’ll just be completely embarrassing to watch…
    But look at the cringe-worthy comments posted at TMZ:
    “Wow, really?! I’m surprised their parents actually let them go along with this. Most Korean parents keep their kids on such a tight leash.”
    “That sounds even more boring. What are they gonna argue about? How much fish sauce to put in the meal?”
    “It’s like Jersey Shore but with higher IQs. Honestly, I see the many of the cast members overacting. Asians are way too rational to be over the top.”
    “That looks more like a parody video. I could care less about seeing an ethnic minority trying to emulate the American culture.”
