One of my favorite HBO series now has to go to True Blood. I love the first season very much that I cannot miss the opening episode of Season 2 on Sunday. The EW reported that rating was sky-rocking.
According to HBO, the bloody good episode averaged 3.7 million viewers, making it the pay cable’s most watched original program since the series finale of The Sopranos two years ago. What’s more, the opener was up a staggering 157 percent over the season 1 premiere, and 51 percent over last November’s season finale.
If you dont’ know what True Blood is about. I will give you a short synopsis from True Blood Fansite.
Series Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, vampires have come out of the coffin. Thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood, vampires no longer need humans for their fix, and can walk freely, if not yet quite comfortably, among their living counterparts – though they can still come out only at night. Meanwhile, in the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps, Sookie Stackhouse works as a waitress at the down-home bar Merlotte’s. Though outwardly normal, she has unusual qualities of her own: Sookie can read people’s minds, which complicates her world in endless ways. But Sookie’s life gets a lot more interesting when Merlotte’s gets its first vampire patron – the 173-year-old Bill Compton – and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, this new HBO series is created and executive produced by Alan Ball, creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series “Six Feet Under.”
Wow… I’ve just finished watching Korean series, “Get Karl! Oh Soo Jung.” I’m completely in love with the story. The storyline is pretty good and very entertaining.
The story starts when Go Man Soo is huge, nerdy, ugly, and chubby. He has been in love with the most popular girl, Oh Soo Jung, since middle school. Go Man Soo would do ANYTHING to have a date with Oh Soo Jung. Oh Soo Jung is like a gold digger. She’s very picky and will pick only the best for herself. She told Go Man Soo that if he passed the exam and became a lawyer, then she would date and got married with him. He had studied so hard to pass the exam, but the exam had three levels. The real beginning of this Korean series is here! Go Man Soo fail the last level of the exam which is the interview exam. He fail the exam right before the day he’s going to get married with Oh Soo Jung. The night before they are going to get married, many men came to beg her not to get married with Go Ma Soo. She resisted. She already made up her mind that Go Mn Soo was the one.
So… just right before she is going to walk into the wedding ceremony, Go Man Soo decided to be honest with her and told her that he had fail the exam. Oh Soo Jung was in shock and couldn’t accept the fact that after they were married, he might NOT be able to make money as much as she has hoped. …. SHE RAN AWAY with her wedding gown!!
It’s getting interesting… Go Man Soo was very disappointed and hurt so bad. He decided to go to the US and started his new life. 8 years later, it’s time for Go Man Soo to come back and finish his revenge on Oh Soo Jung. Now, he’s world known golfer, Go Karl (his new name) who comes back to Korea for the tournament. Oh Soo Jung is a desperate 34-year-old single who is trying to catch a wealthy husband. When she learns that Go Karl is Go Man Soo, she wants him back because now he’s worth 5 Million!
From here, the story continues to get better… you have to watch the rest. I love it!
I’ve just finished watching the Vineyard Man, 2006 Korean Drama series, on the weekend. At first, I felt that the story moved so slow. I would have felt asleep. But, it’s getting better when Ji Hyun had to go to work for her grand uncle’s vineyard in a small town. The scenary was beatiful!! I was much enjoyable to watch Ji Hyun (Yoon Eun Hye from the Princess Hour and Coffee Prince) worked with Jang Taek Gi (I never see him before).
City girl in a country town!! OMG.. she had to work so hard because her grand uncle told her if she worked for him for one year, he would gave her the 10,000 acre vineyard (worth about 20 million dollars). She’s very talented in designing and sewing clothes, but she had to come to work as a farmer. She asked Taek Gi to teach her everything and help her to become a queen of grape.
This is a romantic-comedy. Both actor and actress pulled it off and make it believable. This is another successful work from Yoon Eun Hye!! Love it! You can’t miss this Korean series!!! Yoon Eun Hye is so cute even though she looks so tan. Watch the MV from YouTube below.
