The Narrative Gives a Nod to Ktown Cowboys (2010)

Like many of you, Narrators, I fell in love with Ktown Cowboys last year.  I thought it was a hilarious, laidback, inventive and well-executed series.  If we ever get the Blasian Narrative Awards up and running, it would be a shoo-in for 2010 due to its balanced and witty (and sexy) portrayal of Asian American men.

That said, here are the episodes and interviews for Ktown Cowboys.  Enjoy, Narrators.

  1. Peter Jae shouldn't threaten to strip. He should just strip.

  2. My husband and I loved this webseries. We'll definitely be chipping in for the film project. I was a bit torn about donating, though. If I don't donate then Pedro is probably more likely to strip, which would be nice to watch :) However, I figured that I don't want to watch a stripper who's heart really isn't in it so I hope the film gets made.

  3. Yeah Peter Jae is hot when he took that shirt off I wanted him in my bedroom. I also like Big Phony too he's so sweet and chill. So for Peter I would do him for the rough sex you can tell he's kinky than Phony for the passionate sex, whatever mood I'm in, I guess. Ugh let me stop, that would never happen unless I kidnapped them... but I'm not crazy like that so... yeah.

  7. I can't wait to see the film. I'm glad it's an all-new story and I like that it's going to be feature-length.

    And with Danny Cho involved, you know it's going to be hilarious.

  8. The series was hillarious, very professional looking and entertaining. I need to leave myself a reminder to donate on pay day.

    Girl if you flip those scenarios it's even hotter. No one would be expecting Peter to be all gentle and passionate and the idea of Bobby getting aggressive is exciting. Lemme stop because I say too much

  10. Funny, great filming, awesomely put together, good music choices, and ALL POC woohoo! Those are the positives. Buuuut I'm not a big fan of the zealous celebration of sexist "bro" culture, treating women as objects, judging them mainly by appearance (the only thing the actresses really do is giggle and make flirty comments). Yes ONE character asks for this to stop(for only one girl) but he gets put down and made fun of and they still do it. I'm all for POC controlling their own images through web shows like this and yes the boys are very nice to look at(Hello club confrontation scene! haha) but really, watching guys get drunker and drunker and call women bitches is pretty unpleasant even if it is Asian guys breaking the stereotype... Maybe that's what they're trying to do - go reeeally far in the opposite direction of the stereotype but is "Asian guys can be sexist douchebags too and while they're at it induct a new guy into their douchey ways" really that enjoyable to watch? I'm aware that Koreatown clubbing culture might be something like this IRL but seeing it glorified is just not for me. =/ Wish I could like it because Asian men are so underrepresented in mainstream media and I love seeing it remedied online but all of the sexism is so distracting that I can only semi-like the one character that gets put down for being passive agressive. Maybe if we saw these guys outside of that environment it would be easier to deal with - seeing Peter(or really all of them) going out on a date or trying to be gentlemanly rather than tryhard Alpha male-y would be a nice change...
