Over the weekend I had heard that the “Bachelor” filming had left LA, and I thought I knew where they were headed but wasn’t 100% sure. Well, after getting a few tweets and emails about it early this morning, I can confirm that filming has moved to Seoul, South Korea for episode 4. Today was a group date where the all-girl K-pop group “2ne1” put on a concert (although by the time you read this, it’s already Tuesday in South Korea). Damn. What, Psy wasn’t available? I’d never heard a Korean pop song in my life until Psy burst onto the scene with “Gangnem Style” then “Gentleman.” You know how music snobs in America say, “Oh, that (insert music genre) all sounds the same.” Well, apparently we aren’t the only country who does that. Is there really any difference between Psy and 2ne1, because I sure can’t tell other than he’s a male lead and these are four girls. How long before 2ne1 gets their music played here in the states? Tell me if you can hear any difference between Psy’s “Gentleman” and 2ne1’s “I Am the Best.”
Not impressed ABC. If you can’t get Psy to perform on your show, then don’t have any K-pop music at all. I think I would’ve been more impressed if you could’ve at least gotten the girls on the group date to appear on the most popular talk show over there, “J-Pop American Funtime Now!” I think I would’ve enjoyed that more.
