Still watching dramas (finished 2 of Ann’s old lakorns Tae Pang Korn and Nang Fah Rai Peek recently) but I’m getting so incredibly lazy about writing! So let’s do some ‘light blogging’ here and talk about lakorns I’ve re-watched. The lakorns that get the most re-watches are indeed from the ‘Love it’ category but something I re-watched isn’t necessarily an objectively good lakorn, just an entertaining enough one! Haaa. I’m in need of lakorn recommendations so please share with me those that withstood the test of your re-watches!
Watched at least 4 times (I’m not sure of the exact number of times I’ve watched these favourites ‘cos sometimes I skim through random episodes when I have a craving for the OTP)
Sawan Biang – I feel like a broken record going on and on about my love for Ken/Ann but till now no other pairing can unseat them as the no. 1 in my heart. I’m so thankful Ch3 paired them up in not just one, but a few well-written lakorns (versus Aum/Aff who imo didn’t have any really good follow up lakorns after their explosive start in JLR). SB is my go-to when I’m in the mood for angst, specifically angst in the form of Kawee’s man-pain.
Sood Sanaeha – Ahhhhh, my personal perfect lakorn. No reason not to watch it over and over!
Jam Loey Rak – The re-watches were mostly done in the early days of my lakorn watching and its appeal to me has diminished over the years. I doubt I’ll pick this one up again.

Plerng See Roong – *shifty eyes* This made me want to strangle the p’ek and stab my eyes when watching but … eh, the crazy was so much it made PSR train wreckingly entertaining. If you miss Numpeung in all her bitchy glory after Sawan Biang, she ups the rai ante here as a selfish woman obsessed with Mart, her ex lover/now step-son. PSR does have an amazingly sane and functional secondary couple though, so don’t judge me too much ok?? 😄 Just remember to leave your brain and expectations at the door if you consider checking this out.
Poo Yai Lee Gub Nang Ma – Funny and sweet in a low key way, PYLGNM is perfect for days when you need a pick-me-up drama. It’s position has been usurped by the next lakorn though!
Num Baan Rai Gab Wanjai Hi-So – It has a similar vibe to Poo Yai Lee, but I fangirl the OTP more so I now turn to Num Baan to sooth frazzled nerves. After all, who could stay upset watching Napdao Wow Zaap?
Mia Taeng – Another guilty pleasure!
Khun Samee Kamalor Tee Ruk – I did enjoy it the second time round but as it was for recapping purpose, I watched it in such detail that it was a bit of an overkill and I don’t foresee myself re-watching this any time soon.
Suay Rerd Cherd Sod – The jokes can get slap stick but Janie and Film had great chemistry on both the comedy and romance, making this a winner for days when you just wanna have fun!
Kularb Rai Klai Ruk – Mediocre lakorn but boy did the OTP send me into dizzy fangirly spasms. I’ll have to satisfy myself with re-watching Grate/Matt here while waiting for their next lakorn Ruk Tong Om to finish filming!
Dok Soke – Another one where I re-watch strictly for the OTP.
