I am devastated. How about you?

I’m so torn because, on one hand, it portrays Asians like ‘everybody else,’ which is rare (and Asian men are shown as sexual beings?! What?!) … on the other hand, it’s a pretty tasteless portrayal.
I can see this as being more damaging than Jersey Shore was to Italian-Americans, though. At least people of Italian descent show up in other mainstream media so there are multiple representations of ‘being Italian.’ But I can see someone treating this show as their only understanding of ‘being Korean,’ and that would be screwed up.
Also, interesting that this is being branded as a Ktown show when, really, they’re all Americans, right?
Have you seen this?
