Video Village With Ask Chris: Rolling Through K-Town


Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman, San Francisco rapper Watsky and eight young friends from Koreatown are the stars of the new web TV channel LOUD, premiering this week on YouTube. K-Town follows the new reality stars: The stripper, the trainer (you know the routine) through bottle service bars, foot spas and what they call “The craziest busiest party scene on the entire West Coast.” I’ve been taking friends to one of their favorites, Palm Tree L.A. in the old I. Magnin store, for years, but I’m kind of excited hoping to find some more of these over-the-top, wet napkin-style nightspots hidden inside the office buildings and sprawling old stores of Wilshire Boulevard. The show would be a lot more fun if the cameras went off at 2 a.m. I don’t need all that post-drunk bawling and brawling, but besides that the show looks like a joyride every Wednesday through one of my favorite neighborhoods.
