American reality shows are certainly enjoying the Hallyu wave with BToB being the latest act to feature on a well known reality show. In the 21st season of America’s Next Top Model, selected contestants are flown to Seoul where they are taught the choreography to the boys hit ‘Beep Beep’ by the group’s member Peniel. As well as the Dance Challenge, the potential models were also challenged to channel the kpop spirit as photos were taken during their dance number. Although the majority of contestants rose to the challenge, co-host, J.Alexander, referred to one participants poor display as “k-fizzle!” BToB’s music is featured throughout the show, and is a definite nod towards the increasing popularity of Kpop in the States. The show will be filming in Seoul for 2 eps.
