Scoping the teaser videos for the dope new show, ‘Alpha Girls’ which premiered this week, I was intrigued. ‘Alpha Girls’ follows four powerful Asian and Asian-American women (artist Mina Kwon, DJ/producer TOKiMONSTA, Hellz Bellz designer Miss Lawn and model Soo Joo Park) as they navigate the fashion, art and music worlds, offering behind the scenes access to their career successes, struggles and personal lives. Turned off by the other female reality franchises which focus on backstabbing and talking behind each other’s backs to the camera, it’s refreshing to get glimpses into real artists’ creative processes, crazy busy schedules and obstacles encountered while living their dreams. On a rare rainy night at the premiere party in LA, I connected with two ‘Alpha Girls’ -Mina Kwon who told me her fav cartoon character was Bart Simpson as you’ll see in her art and that Pharrell, who appears in the show and is a big inspiration to her, is proud, as well as TOKiMONSTA who explained her reasons for doing the show and plans for new music in 2014.

Watch the eight “Alpha Girls” episodes on Mnet America Wednesdays at 8 PM PST/EST, the Mnet’s website or on YouTube ! Peep the first episode above and my quick interview clip with TOKiMONSTA from the premiere’s red carpet below!
