Good episode? Give it some love!
Come meet the first vampire in the world! Did you know that Raja Bersiong actually lived in the 11th or 12th century meaning that it predates Vlad Tepesh? - the real life bloodthirsty ruler that spawned Dracula. Mentioned in Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa and then later immortalised on film(s) most people have an inclination of what he is, a mortal man who developed a taste for blood and because of it grew fangs and became more cruel. Tutu reimagines him as a young prince, the heir to the kingdom of Langkasuka and the possibility that this affliction might have come to him from more traditional vampiric means. Catch this interesting conversation!
