Ever since “Edward Tulane” showed up in Korean drama “You Came From The Stars 별에서 온 그대” (a.k.a. “My Love From Another Star”), I’ve been on the lookout for what else our Handsome Bibliophile Alien Next Door has been reading. Look at what I spied in Episode 10:
It’s “A Visitor’s Guide to Mystic Falls”, a companion book to the popular TV series “The Vampire Diaries”. The Alien has been reading about vampires! I can still remember Song Yi’s “If you’re an alien then I’m a vampire!” moment. And I suppose this is more interesting than seeing Min Joon reading about aliens in popular culture, although that would have been amusingly meta. 😛
In A Visitor’s Guide to Mystic Falls, YA authors—led by Red and Vee of premier Vampire Diaries resource Vampire-Diaries.net—take a closer look at Mystic Falls: its residents (both alive and undead) and its rich, inescapable history.
- Claudia Gray delves into the events of 1864 and how they’ve shaped not just Mystic Falls but the success of the show itself
- Sarah Rees Brennan tells us what it takes for a girl to hold her own against a vampire boyfriend (or two), placing Elena squarely between fellow vampire-daters Buffy and Bella
- Jennifer Lynn Barnes takes Mystic Falls to task for poor treatment of Caroline Forbes
- Jon Skovron examines the male-female vampire dynamic, in history and in The Vampire Diaries
- Plus a guide to the book series for tv fans looking to visit The Vampire Diaries’ literary inspiration, and more
Min Joon might just learn a thing or two after reading Sarah Rees Brennan’s contribution.
