We have the classic, beautiful female protagonist with a preexisting emotional history. Her parents have recently died, her professors have zero sympathy, and her younger brother is dealing drugs and completely separated from school and family. Add in sexy new student and the beginnings of a steamy romance. This guy (vampire) also happens to be one of a dynamic brotherly duo, one good and the other bad. Hello perfect telenovela love triangle! I'll also add that the protagonist apparently looks exactly like a girl from their past; she was a lover to them both. In addition, the protagonist's best friend is a witch who is just learning of her family's power. The drama is even more absurd than this description.
If I was to comment on this show just last month, I probably would have said that it was a waste of time. However, much like the novela I'm watching, I was completely hooked after giving it a chance. I don't know if the whole vampire theme would go over well in Latin America. Many telenovelas serve as an extension of cultural issues currently concerning the given society. Vampires don't exactly represent real-life issues. The fantasy created does; however, provide immediate escape and enjoyment. If vampires did show up in a telenovela, who knows what these characters might represent. Perhaps a certain political leader, currently sucking the life out of his country and people??
