    Foreigners, the Mainstream in Korean Variety Shows
    By Gang Ju-il

    Foreigners are dominating the silver screen. Foreigners who used to appear as "condiments" in TV shows are now dominating our living rooms as the mainstream in variety shows.

    Sam Hammington, an Australian comedian starring in Sunday Night: Real Men, an MBC variety show, is currently starring in 6 programs including the shows scheduled to be aired.

    Four foreigners including Sam Hammington appear on Island Village Teacher, a new reality show which will be aired for the first time in September on tvN. They include Brad, the drummer of the Korean band Busker Busker; Abigail, who appeared on Chitchat of Beautiful Ladies (KBS2) in 2010; and Sam Ochiri, who appears in the skit "Delicious Korean" in Gag Concert (KBS2). This is the first show with an all-foreigner cast, with no Korean host.

    The four foreigners have been staying in Ho-do, an island off the coast of Boryeong, South Chungcheong Province since August 29 for a 5-day shooting of the show. They will teach the students in the island elementary school English as native speaking English teachers.
    Eight people from Turkey studying Korean will appear on MBC's pilot show Welcome. They will live together during a selection process after which the show will choose one student who will receive a scholarship to study Korean in Korea for a year.

    We Got Married: Global Edition which airs on MBC Everyone is creating a stir overseas including China and Thailand. Taecyeon, a member of 2PM and Gui Gui (Wu Ying Jie), a Taiwanese actress and singer appear as a virtual couple portraying the life of newlyweds along with Lee Hong-ki, a member of FT Island and Fujii Mina, a Japanese actress. Thanks to their popularity, they are expected to join We Got Marriedon MBC from the new season later this year.

    The number of foreigners taking part in various audition programs has also increased. The Russian sisters, Alina and Kacha appeared in Superstar K, an audition program for singers on Mnet and Jaylon, Marco and Tevin Cole have appeared on Dancing 9. Sayuri Fujita, a Japanese woman who first debuted on Chitchat of Beautiful Ladies (KBS2), is currently appearing in a number of variety shows.

    This phenomenon reflects our reality in a multicultural and multiracial age. The Ministry of Security and Public Administration announced on August 2 that the number of foreign residents in Korea as of January 1, 2013 increased by 2.6% compared to the previous year to 1, 445,631. They account for 2.8% of the total residents registered in Korea.

    The "globalization of broadcasting" also contributed to the change. Now that overseas viewers have easy access to Korean TV shows through new media outlets like YouTube, the borders have collapsed. One person from CJ E&M said, "These days when we produce variety shows, whether or not we can export the show abroad is an important factor to consider. In the case of Island Village Teacher, we decided that the show would be easy to export since the topic of a foreigner teaching their language in another country was a situation which could apply to any country."

    Even in shows with a number of foreign stars, we can look forward to unexpected situations and laughs. Jiang Bo and Bruno, who appeared on the KBS variety show, We See Korea in 1999 proved this by displaying various unexpected moments.

    Kim Jong-hoon, the producer of Island Village Teacher said, "Foreigners are not fluent in Korean and they haven't completely adapted to the Korean culture. So in some situations they can't help but be very honest. This feature goes well with real variety shows." Choi Won-seok, the producer of Welcome also said, "Since the stars are students who studied Korean in Turkey, their Korean is less fluent than the foreigners we usually see on TV. The innocent and talented foreign students will provide a different kind of entertainment."

    Gim Gyo-seok, a pop culture critic said, "In a multicultural age, it is meaningless to divide people according to their nationality. We should watch and evaluate them based on whether they are entertaining or not as a TV personality."
