Vampire Prosecutor

   I will be honest - I thought of ignoring that drama. Trailer was cheesy and I thought, well, I probably didn't think at all. But, aren't the vampires in the orbit of my research? Kind of Saturn orbit, but close enough. And I watched the first episode. And now I'm waiting for the second. The fact that main actor looks like Yucheon's hyeong also doesn't hurt, ekhem...
The last drama with vampires I watched was Freeze, and it was good.

   You gotta love cable dramas. They are not afraid of risky topics, graphic violence and nudity (hell, they even have the song with "f*ck" in it). 
In the first epiosde we got only the blurred reminiscence of how our protagonist became a vampire, and some shattered images from his past. This is a good start. There is a lot to fill.
I'm watching. Now, off to the first episode of Empress.
