Supermodel Tyra Banks and the newest contestants of reality TV show America’s Next Top Model were spotted roaming the streets of Seoul, causing a “frenzy” among local media, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Local residents have been reporting on the group’s whereabouts on social media, after host Banks and her crew arrived in Seoul on March 21. The group reportedly visited various city landmarks and popular tourist attractions, including City Hall and Gwanghwamun at Gyeongbok Palace, while filming the 21st iteration of the modeling competition, which will be coed this season.
Various entertainment sites reported that 17-year-old Korean model, Lee Jin-yi, could possibly be a competitor this season. Lee is the daughter of actress Hwang Shin-hye. In addition, K-pop group BtoB will appear on the show as dance judges.
The reality TV show is known for traveling to extravagant locations with the latest trend-setting fashion. Filming of the show will continue for next two weeks under tight security.
America’s Next Top Model will air on the CW in August.
ANTM is one of my guilty pleasures but over the past number of cycles, it has become less and less a pleasure. Ever since they went to Tokyo (Cycle 3) and Bangkok (Cycle 6), I always longed for the day they went to Seoul. This just might be a game-changer.

Is winter driving you mad? Do you scowl in disgust when you see yellow and brown heaps of snow? Does it anger you that everywhere you walk you might slip or get your feet wet? Well maybe these jamz will help you get through the winter slush.
This started as a VD playlist and has morphed into the above. Enjoy.
Eartha Kitt Interview.
This is extremely heavy.
This was hard to watch, but very worthwhile. Starting at 5:00 I start to heavily empathize rather then sympathize.
" A man? A man has always wanted to lay me down, but he’s never wanted to pick me up. The men that did have real love and affection for me were the ones that never touched me."
A brutally honest and eye-opening interview with Eartha Kitt.
"Caught Up In The Rapture" - JoJo
I’ve played her new EP about 30 times this weekend. My standard weekend cleaning / bathtub music involves Anita Baker jamz, but I might have to make an exception for this cover. It made me very nervous to see that she was covering Anita, but this is a nice fresh take.
