Hey Violet! Thank you again for doing this interview with me for the Fan Blog!
Thank you Tommy for your love and undying support.
No problem V! Let’s get started with the interview!
1. Explain to us how “If it fits in my mouth, then it’s too small,” came to be the Violet Kim quote.
It wasn’t suppose to have been a quote. In the midst of a girl to girl conversation, it just came out. It’s funny because it ended up being the only verbal line in the trailer. As much as I don’t want to admit what the context of it is, it’s pretty hard not to imagine what I could be talking about. I say things as a matter of fact and the fact is, if it fits in my mouth, it’s too small. Plain and simple. I’m not trying to be perverted or be dirty. The truth is, amongst girls, when we talk we are most of the time more descriptive and specific than men.
2. What was your initial reaction when you found out that you were apart of the K-Town cast?
Honestly it was so long ago I don’t remember. I’m assuming it was a mixture of excitement and nervousness because it’s one thing to blog and control the information that’s being put out and another to give free range to people whom I’ve just met to play me like a puppet. Overall, I wanted it and so when I got it, the opportunity was much appreciated!
3. Were you concerned at all about people/the cast members judging you from the get-go that you’re a single mom and you shouldn’t be doing K-Town?

Of course! If I wasn’t me, I’d be judging too! I knew I’d be a target, but I think, I secretly like the attention and challenge. I say challenge because it gives me a harder chance to get people to be on my side because they already start off with a negative opinion. As for being on the show and knowing the types of criticism I’d be getting, I wasn’t worried because I grew up with people constantly talking negatively about me. I have thick skin and I think my childhood has definitely prepped me for this moment.
4. What can we expect from Violet Kim as the show progresses on? (Does she find love? Does she give Jowe a second chance?)
Don’t expect anything! I say this because I don’t want to let anyone down. Lol. Just know that you get to see a side of me that only my close friends get to see, my vulnerability and openness to finding love.
5. Which cast member(s) are you the closest to and keep in contact on a daily basis?
I keep in contact with all. I try to talk to them daily but with my crazy schedule, it’s hard.
6. Describe to us a typical night with Violet Kim in K-Town
A typical night with me is starting off at Beer Belly for dinner and my favorite bottle of rose. Then I head to Cafe Bleu and just see where the night takes us. Most of the time we end up staying at Cafe Bleu but it varies, on who I’m with and how much I’m drinking
7. If you can compare each cast member to a Korean dish (including yourself), what would they be and why?
Honestly, we are all very different yet very similar. I don’t think I’ll go into a specific dish about each person but we’re like a typical dinner setting at a Korean table. There are a variety of dishes and they all compliment each other and are very good on their own as well.
8. What did you think of the first 2 episodes of K-Town so far?
My opinion is probably bias because I’m part of the show, but I LOVE IT! It’s actually entertaining, even for me. I’ve experienced each moment in the episodes but sometimes I feel like I’m experiencing it from the viewer’s perspective and it gets me at the edge of my seat wanting more. Is it Wednesday yet?????
9. Now I’ve been hearing all over the internet that you’re the Asian version of Snooki from the Jersey Shore, what makes you different from her? (Aside from the fact that you’re Asian American)
Snooki and I have NOTHING in common. The comparison came from the first group photo taken and I thought someone was standing behind me so I bent my knees so their face could show and it made me look much shorter than I was. I am still the shortest in the group at 5’2″ but not as short as Snooki. I have never watched Jersey Shore so I don’t know what her personality/character is so I can’t tell you how I’m different from her. But physically, I’d say I’m the complete opposite. I’m not girly, I don’t wear much makeup, and I’m not orange.
10. Last question, would you do this whole K-Town experience from the very beginning again?
I would most definitely do this again. I always wanted to be on the Real World when I was younger, and then I got married and that didn’t happen. So when this opportunity came, I knew I had to at least try it out.
Any closing remarks you have for me?
To all the fans/haters, don’t think too hard. It’s meant for pure enjoyment, and if you’re not enjoying, just don’t watch it! Simple as that. No need to get catty and mean!
