According to our pals at Curbed, there's going to be a K-Town version of Jersey Shore, and it's already been cast with a crew of hi-drama 18 - 30 year olds. Will they call it the Asian Persuasion? (FYI: If you haven't already heard, there's a Jersey Hills?er Jersey Shore ripoff called The Persian Version in the works.) Curbed's savvy, succinct analysis: You know it almost seems like all these shows have the same plots, just with different looking people. [Curbed LA]
