What’s on my lakorn horizon

31 Oct

Qi Pao is airing tomorrow! However much I make fun of Mart’s acting, I must admit to being partial to his dimpled charm which he should be putting to good use as the cold (read: expressionless) p’ek. No worries about Ann obviously and I like the murder/mystery/supernatural plot but I’m just an itty bitty concern about the execution since I belong to those who felt that Roy Mai wasted a potentially epic love storyline.

Some more news on Ann …. she is finally pairing up with Tik in Ya Leum Chan. With both their current standing in the industry, it’s like a ‘golden pairing’ of sorts but I’m not particularly excited for it. I want to like Tik but since being scarred by Kaew Teh Pee, I haven’t managed to enjoy anything of his and am I the only to find Ya Leum Chan’s story rather silly?

Chompoo is back with Rome for ‘Khun Samee Karmalor Tee Ruk’ which will be airing end Nov after Rang Ngao. I’m not sure of the story but from the BTS, I guess it’s the rom-com-y sort? At least I don’t think we’ll be getting another dumb as bricks p’ek like in Mia Taeng!


Seems like Ploy can’t get away from playing rai even if it’s the main role. I like her in nice roles like in ‘Phoo Yai Lee Gab Nang Ma’ and ‘Rak Mai Mee Wan Tai’ where I major fangirled over the OTP but Ploy does have a ‘fierce’ look that helps when she’s being nasty. Haa. I can’t quite figure out what’s going on from the teaser. Por’s a nasty p’ek, Ploy’s a two-face nasty nang’ek, Kan’s a nasty third wheel and Yard is … an innocent slave girl? Whut. Anyhow, I presume ‘Buang Barb’ will air within the year.

    Good radar you got here, I’m curious to see Yah Leum Chan as well. Despite the strange synopsis, it worked quite well in the original lakorn with Ann S. and Pete. I like me some old flames 🙂 I’ll be checking out QP soon.
    I cannot believe it’s already Nov! Not looking forward to my busy season, which means less time to indulge in lakorns. At any rate dearie, happy lakorn watching! -Fia

      I haven’t been keeping track of Thai ent news and now when I do, it’s like woah, so many lakorns I’d like to check out. haa. Now I’m just hoping that I can find subs for the lakorns listed here!

    Oh, I didn’t know Khun Samee Karmalor Tee Ruk would be out so soon. Yeah, I’m a little vague on the plot details myself, but apparently Chompoo is a runaway bride who bumps into Rome and I think they have a fake relationship or something? Looking forward to seeing them together again.

    You didn’t like Tik in Roy Leh Sanae Rai? Or maybe you didn’t watch that one? It’s a classic really, and just about 100% of my love of Tik comes from that lakorn. Both Ann and Tik are charming as heck, Ann brings out the best in her co stars, so I’m eager for their pairing. Tik’s not the best actor, but he oozes charm.

    I’m not that fond of the murder/mystery/supernatural plot that you are, just because I’ve yet to see it executed well in lakorns, but I’ll give Qi Pao a shot for Ann.

    Ploy? Hmm. Haven’t watched a lakorn of hers completely yet.

      True. *thinks of Pang Sanaeha* Ann brought her A game on in the first episode already and I liked what I saw so far but I’ll reserve my further judgement till later episodes since Roy Mai also died for me in the later half.

      Ploy has a strong personality and style so I think she’s the love-her-or-hate-her kind of actress. If you ever feel like watching her dramas, I’d recommend ‘Phoo Yai Lee Gab Nang Ma’, a city girl meets country boy story.

      I’ve not watched Roy Leh Sanae. Perhaps I’ll check it out someday!
