Rak Khun Tao Fa update

17 May

I’m back from my hols with more RKTF updates! Haa, I don’t particularly care for this lakorn after reading the detailed storyline but why oh why does it have such a powerful cast that I can’t help but keep track of its progress? The identity of the fourth n’ek has finally been revealed after much suspense to be Marie Boenner. Marie who you ask? Eh, I have no idea either. She’s a newbie with only 2 lakorns on her resume – neither of which I’ve seen so I can’t judge her acting – still, I’m really surprise Noi picked her considering the status/star power/talent of the rest of the cast. I presume the 4th n’ek will be getting the man so Marie better step it up or she’ll be picked apart by the fans of the others.

When news of this lakorn first broke, I secretly hoped for Ann to be the 4th n’ek but now that I know the story is meh, I think Ann is better off keeping her schedule free for another lakorn with Ken where she’s the only lady for him. Heeh.

I do love Cherry and don’t even mind Chompoo but my bias is still Ploy so have photo of Ken and Ploy’s wedding! Though it was eventually foiled by Ken’s mom I think …

RKTF is pretty much off my anticipated lakorn list but a couple others still remain.
Rang Ngao: Is it a tradition to remake popular lakorns every 10 year cycle? Cos Ken T and Ann’s first collaboration 10 years ago is getting an update with Janie and newbie actor Ken Phupoom. Which reminds me I need to go catch up on the original which I dropped halfway.

– Qi Pao: Based off a novel from the same series as Roy Mai, Ann reunites with Mart for a love story also involving textiles and ghost(s). I didn’t enjoy Roy Mai’s story much and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be good ‘cos it’s Ann!

PS. Is anyone watching Dok Soke (Pong/Charebella)? Is it any good? Long suffering n’ek, hot (much) older p’ek, catty secondary females, oh the cliches but it’s my kinda thing!

    Welcome back J! You’ve been missed 🙂 I have not seen Dok Soke but someone is recapping it here: http://www.kwarmmeud.com/darknesslakorns/
    I haven’t been feeling lakorns lately for some reason, I hope something draws my attention soon or I’ll never have anything to write about, ha.
    How was your trip to the US??

      Hi Fia! I guess Khun Seuk didn’t work out for you? I can’t seem to find subs for KS though, so no comments on that show yet. I got started on MLP, might have a post out this weekend.
      The trip was good ~ NY is certainly the city that never sleeps, always bustling with people and activity at any time of the day. My highlights there would be the cruise to catch the Manhattan skyline at night and watching ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ on Broadway. DC was relatively less ‘exciting’ if you will as a tourist destination with many places closing at 5+pm but I managed to meet an old friend there so it was still all good!

    Dok Soke is too dramatic and extreme just like the rest of Exact lakorn. No wonder they are always below in ratings. I would rather watch a Ch7 lakorn. In the past, Exact were really good.

    As for Khun Seuk, I gave up on that lakorn. I prefer Korean and Chinese historical drama. Thai still have a long way to go. I think that was really a wasted 50 million baht. Maybe I set the bar too high and in the end, it just didn’t work out. But once its over, will probably speed watch it lol just for the eye candy. Aum is yummy lol

      Ouch, such a shame Khun Seuk didn’t meet its 50m baht expectations. I expect Dok Soke to be lots of drama + cliches from what I’ve read of it but I’m still keeping it on my to-check-out list for some day when my brain wants to go on a holiday. XD
      Recent lakorns have been lackluster for me. I’m hoping for something to kick start my lakorn watching but nothing on the horizon seems exciting.

    Marie’s acting was beyond horrible in her debut, but she has improved. But she just doesn’t have that sparks. And the way she talks, it just bugs the banana out of me. Yaya has at least improved on her accent, I am not even Thai yet I am bothered by it. As for Chalida, she has shown improvements and she went as far as attending speech classes. I think she has even surpass Yaya. At least for Chalida she has had a variety of roles. I am not just speaking because she is my bias, she became my bias because of what she has done. Even the 15 year old girl that debuted in Chompoo’s new lakorn does a better job. I am sadden that she got this role. But I guess they are really trying to push her up by pairing her up with such experienced actors and actresses. But Ken has been on a down spiral for me. His lakorns lately are just trash lol I know I am so mean. He needs Ann. I think Ann is the one who made him who he is today. Haha. Kidding but it does feel that way.

      Sooo true. Ann brings out the best in Ken.

    • J June 7, 2012 at 7:19 AM #

      Speaking of Ken dramas, I’ve actually only watched those in which he paired up with Ann!
      None of the newbies have really caught my eye or maybe it’s just that I’ve been out of touch with Thai entertainment lately??

        IMHO Thai entertainment has been in the downswing for some time. There’s nothing that really stands out. Maybe one of these days, please God. There’s something about lakorns, when done right, that just grab my heart soooooo tight. I can’t count how many times though my eyes watered by looking at silly lakorns that should have never seen the light of day. Speaking of newbies, I think most of them are in the awkward stage – they aren’t experienced enough to take on challenging scripts, but they aren’t exactly newbies anymore. Hence the array of mediocre stuff. No one knows how they’ll end up, but my money is currently on Mark Prin.
