A SPECTACULAR TRIP TO EXOTIC SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA AWAITS THE 13 REMAINING BACHELORETTES, ON ABC'S "THE BACHELOR"

"K-Pop" Superstars "2NE1" Give a Never-to-be-Forgotten Concert

"Episode 1804" - Juan Pablo starts his international journey to find love with a fascinating trip to Seoul, South Korea. Although he is hesitant to leave his daughter, Camila, behind on this part of the adventure to find his soul mate, he is anticipating exploring the city with 13 amazing women. Six lucky women join Juan Pablo to meet "K-Pop" superstars "2NE1," the most popular singing group in the country. The mega-stars not only give them personal dance lessons, but a huge surprise. Sharleen shares a perfect date with the Bachelor exploring some traditional Korean foods and locations, until they have a discussion about her becoming a mother. Finally, Juan Pablo escorts six of the ladies on a "Korean Craze," a whirlwind tour of some of South Korea's craziest adventures for daring tourists. What happens when Juan Pablo decides not to kiss every woman? The claws come out at the cocktail party and the women clash as they battle for time with the dashing Bachelor in order to build their relationships, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, JANUARY 27 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

"K-Pop" superstars "2NE1" put Juan Pablo and six of the women through their paces, teaching them a choreographed routine to one of their chart-topping hits. Kat steals the spotlight with her professional dance moves, while Nikki struggles to keep up and fit in. Then the group drops a bombshell -- Juan Pablo and the six beautiful women will perform as background dancers during a concert in front of a live audience. Kat has no problem showing off her expertise and making sure Juan Pablo knows it. Nikki has a serious case of stage fright she must conquer if she is to continue. At the after party, one woman makes it quite clear she is not a fan of group dates and wants Juan Pablo all to herself.

A nervous Sharleen, who is questioning her connection with the Bachelor, shares a wonderful, romantic day with him. They explore a quaint Korean market, buying souvenirs and trying local exotic foods. Later, they stop at a traditional teahouse where they share a memorable bond. Sharleen finally drops her reserve and opens up to Juan Pablo about her doubts and fears. And in a very touching moment, the professional opera singer gives him a secret performance in a private courtyard. However, when Juan Pablo questions Sharleen about balancing her career with motherhood, there is a disquieting silence. Will she tell him the truth even it means not getting a rose?

Six other lucky women are about to go on an outrageous escapade better known as a "Korean Craze," including singing karaoke, going for a river tour on swan-shaped pedal boats and enduring a fish pedicure. However, things get ugly when one woman tries to steal too much time with Juan Pablo. And to make things more interesting, the Bachelor, with his daughter uppermost in his mind, decides that night to take a step back and not kiss anyone. One woman goes in for a kiss and is rejected. Will that cost her a rose?

The drama ramps up at the cocktail party as the women agree that anyone already with a rose should give the other women a chance at some alone time with Juan Pablo. But of course, one of the bachelorettes with a rose breaks the agreement and steals the Bachelor away. A face-off between the women ensues, making for a tension-filled room.

At the end of the night, 11 bachelorettes get to pack their bags for the next stop on the romantic world tour with the dashing Juan Pablo: Vietnam.

The 13 remaining women are:
Alli, 26, nanny, Chicago, IL
Andi, 26, assistant district attorney, Atlanta, GA
Cassandra, 21, former NBA dancer, Rochester Hills, MI
Chelsie, 24, science educator, Columbus, OH
Clare, 32, hairstylist, Sacramento, CA
Danielle, 25, psychiatric nurse, St. Louis, MO
Elise, 27, first grade teacher, Forty Fort, PA
Kat, 29, medical sales rep, Scottsdale, AZ
Kelly, 27, dog lover, Atlanta, GA
