Daejanggeum' polled to be typhoon name in Hong Kong: TVBS TV
May 27, 2005
The title of the hit Korean television program was recommended by a large number of Hong Kong residents to be the name of a new typhoon, Taiwanese TVBS TV reported on Thursday (May 26).
According to the network, fans of "Jewel in the Palace (Daejanggeum)" voted for the title (read "Taai Cheung Gam" in Chinese) in a recent poll to make it the name of the typhoon this summer. This is a popular epic television series, the last episode of which marked a record high 47 percent of viewer's ratings in Hong Kong recently.
Besides the title, Chinese name of the late Bruce Lee and the name of popular shrimp dumplings were also recommended as typhoon names by many, but were rejected as they were not things typically related to Hong Kong.
