I don't know who took notice first. Whoever that person is (besides the fact that he might be Chinese), one thing is for sure--this is one US TV show fanatic.
By the way, US television series are very well received in China. For example, Sex and the City, Friends, and House all have loyal followings.
The newspaper that keep showing up in US TV series: There is one newspaper, whose acting experience is richer than that of many big stars.
