Crayon Pop’s ‘Bar Bar Bar’ played on ABC’s ‘Selfie’

On the 4th episode of American broadcasting station’s ABC romantic comedy, Selfie, starring Korean-American actor John Cho, Crayon Pop’s ‘Bar Bar Bar’ was aired with leads John Cho and Karen Gillian dancing to it.

John Cho is best known for his roles in ‘Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle’ (2004) and the ‘Star Trek’ series (2009 and 2013). Cho came back to the small screen to co-star with Karen Gilian in this spunky, new series.

‘Selfie’ follows the lives of Eliza and Henry, with the former “more interested in getting likes than being liked,” and the latter more interested in the credo “all work, no play.” Throughout the course of the show, social media user Eliza will attempt to become a more likable person in real life with Henry’s help. The show has been deemed to be a modern remake of ‘My Fair Lady’ as both female protagonists are named Eliza and both shows feature similar plots.

Update (31 Oct 2014): On Halloween, the cast from Selfie danced to ‘Bar Bar Bar’ once again in Power Ranger costumes. Check out the video below!

    Damn, they massacred it with edits. Nice unexpected exposure though, and it’s cool that 3Bar was chosen as “typical” K-pop, when it’s not really all that typical. 🙂

      Yeah, I would’ve expected some SNSD action, they’re already known in America.

    Hahaha loved it! Another amazing korean-american comedian actor is ken jeong from Community. I think the show chose BarBarBar because it’s more “exotic” than regular k-pop songs and the rest of America that doesn’t listen to K-pop still thinks that K-pop is fat dudes singing Gangnam Style on an elevator while not wearing pants. And I gotta say I’m glad that this song didn’t become another Gangnam Style on it’s moment. I would hate to hate a CP song!

    When I first saw this, I thought it was hilarious and awesome! Almost thought they were going to do the inline piston dance!
