Well, the only reality shows with lots of Asians before this were Beauty and the Geek and of course I'll never forget Survivor: Race Wars (or was that Cook Islands), though of course I never watched a single episode.
I know nothing about LA Korean "guid" culture, but it would be interesting to see how it compares to the Jersey Shore, if I had ever watched the Jersey shore. From what I can see so far at least the girls are hotter - there's no Snooki...
I'm a distant cousin of Singaporean pop sensation Dìck Lee. Bruce would have been a lot cooler but I'll take it.

I see the time has come to start exploiting the Asians and Hispanics. I knew blacks couldn't do all the work with these Flavor of Love shows and the rap videos.
About two of those four Asian chicks are bound to be accidentally called "Tila Tequila" by a media journalist. One of them will probably marry Woody Allen. I don't even wanna look at the one with bad bleach job.
Like you guys, I'm trying to weigh whether the spikey haired FOBs- In-Fedoras image is worse for Asian guys than the buck-toothed computer programmer image. I'm also trying to figure out if I'd rather have these orangey, easily mistaken for an Asian pornstar chicks over the bleach-skinned, chicken-legged infantile babydoll image. But I guess Asian women will be okay as long as none of these chicks are shown throwing themselves on a white guy.
Never watched Jersey Shore--too old for that. I hate the hell out of Snooki. I'd seriously like her to step in front of a speeding bus and take Justin Bieber with her. American pop culture is really messed up--vapid, mindless BS. Kids are so easily entertained these days. There was a time when you actually had to go out and find something interesting to do to be entertained. Now you pull out your Droid and tap little buttons for 3 hours. I don't expect this show to last more than a few episodes. How much of the viewing audience will be non-Asian? So get more white males 16-35 to watch it--because that's the demographic to seems to have a bottomless capacity for this kind of crap TV--they'll have to find ways to interject white guys into the plot lines and then we know what happens after that. And we DON'T need any AF versions of Snooki stinking the airwaves up. This show is a BAD idea.
