The search is over. The cast is in place and filming has begun on K-Town, a reality “spoof” of the Jersey Shore — featuring Asian-Americans instead of guidos and produced by model/actor Tyrese Gibson. The show is set on the shores of the West coast, in L.A.’s Koreatown.
Peter Le, pictured below, is being coined “the Korean Situation” and the show hasn’t even aired yet.
Craigslist posted a casting call back in April that read:
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.
