Abstract: This article focuses on a peculiar phenomenon in Korean television—revelations of production activities in reality shows. For example, the revelation regarding production of the popular television show Two Days and One Night (1bak 2il) is closely connected with reality television. In general, reality shows bring about reality with the appearance of ordinary people, but Korean reality shows cannot do that for various reasons. Korean producers often replace the reality of ordinary people with production reality through bloopers, intended revelations, and appearances as regular guests. These kinds of revelations utilizing production activities and production staff are efficient replacements for ordinary people. They portray historical reality in the workplace and provide authenticity. This choice for revelation is a conservative one, as it closes the door for ordinary people to achieve the fifteen minutes of fame. However, stylistic decisions amidst rising competition, flexibilization of broadcasting labor, and technological developments in Korean broadcasting seem inevitable.

2. Couldry, Nick. "Charting the Reality of ‘Reality’ Construction – Or Why Carey Had It Right" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p169054_index.html>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: There are many different ‘realities’, that is, many different domains which might provide the main orientation of our practice, both singly and together. But intersecting those domains are structures that constrain what, on various scales, we take as our primary ‘reality’. These structures are, in part, based on the concentration of narrative resources in particular places, a material process that Carey captured.
There are, however, two ways of applying Carey’s dictum more specifically to media. Do media narratives literally, and completely, construct the only ‘reality’ that we can today live? Or is it only that the effect of media institutions’ symbolic power is to make it seem so? This paper will argue for the second interpretation, because it avoids mediacentrism, and better reflects the open-ended challenge (implicit in Levi-Strauss’s comment) to current media ‘realities’ from other sources of symbolic power, notably religion.

Abstract: Questions of 'reality' and 'realism'have been lying at the heart of the discourses emanating from and surrounding the global proliferation of so-called ‘reality TV’ programming. The purpose of this article is not to engage in a fundamental philosophical reflection on the notion of ‘reality’ but rather to provide a theoretically informed discussion of how it is deployed and negotiated in the discourses of those who are involved in the production of ‘reality TV’. Our analysis is grounded in the concepts and insights provided in the literature within the domains of documentary studies and popular culture, which are integrated with insights emerging from in-depth interviews with 47 professionals and participants of ‘reality’-shows.

Abstract: Amidst a deluge of celebrities parading their personal lives before the cameras to raise their own celebrity status or resurrect dwindling careers, a host of stars have elected to invite cameras into their homes in order to put forth reality sitcoms centered on the presentation of strong family morals and simple parenting lessons. Reality sitcoms have become the next generation of domestic sitcoms by adhering to generic sitcom conventions and consciously using family values as its foundation. Of these reality sitcoms, two iconic musicians, Joseph “Reverend” Simmons of Run-DMC and Gene Simmons from KISS, have used their respective cable shows as a pulpit to preach – often through humor – a return to paterfamilias and the importance of family love and loyalty, even for the most unconventional families. Despite different parenting styles and attitudes, both reality TV dads are the Ward Cleavers of a new generation.

Abstract: This article examines the justification discourse of Israel TV’s reality show creators as a case study of how employees of the culture industries perceive their work. On the one hand, creators of Israeli reality TV operate in an unstable and competitive environment, and on the other, their work is criticized as inferior and culturally corrupting. Here we combine Luc Boltanski’s pragmatist sociology, which studies the rationale of social agents, and the cultural industries approach to explore the regime of justification employed by reality show creators in Israel. An in-depth analysis of interviews with leading creators of the genre sheds light on the arguments they use to justify reality programming and draws home how deeply they are ingrained in hegemonic capitalist discourse.
