Dear Malaysians, if you missed the Love Truly (or a.k.a Really, Really Like You) run on 8TV (June until August 2007) or just have a burning desire to watch the chemistry between Eugene, Lee Min-ki and Ryoo Jin one more time, you’re in luck.
Gleeful trio: (From left) Ryoo Jin, Lee Min-ki and Eugene are delighted that
their drama is being aired for the 2nd time in Malaysia within the same year.
The Phoenix Channel (Astro PHOENIX 312) is currently airing the drama series at 7pm to 8pm from Monday to Friday. Repeats are at 2.15pm the following day. Hmph, it’s still dubbed in Mandarin(!) and there’s no toggle function for audio and subtitles.
Gosh, I expected better from an Astro channel. Oh yeah, there’s only Chinese subtitles…someone at Phoenix-land really, really dislikes me (sic), huh?
Why are we getting the same drama on different channels? Is there a share-a-drama program between the terrestrial and satellite TV stations that we are not aware of?
Ah well, at least this drama is aired on Phoenix after it ended its run on 8TV, but did you know that the Korean drama Marrying a Millionaire starring Ko Soo has been simultaneously showing on Astro PRIMA and TV2?
Come on guys, don’t waste time slots like this. You can bring in more dramas if you stop competing for a piece of the K-popped! Malaysian pie this way.
A more effective method would be to air the dramas in its original Korean audio with either the Bahasa Malaysia or English subtitles on to capture the non Chinese-speaking market…and we’re growing, I think.
