What’s on my lakorn horizon

27 Feb

The lakorns I were excited for end of last year didn’t quite hold my attention as I had hoped: Qi Pao lost me around ep4,5 while I checked out of Khun Samee and Buang Barp after 1 ep. But I’m still holding out hope that the following new batches of lakorns will be good!

Pan Ruk Pan Rai
I don’t keep tabs on Ch5’s lakorns so I didn’t know about this one till Fia blogged about it. It’s pretty 90s kdrama makjang stuff with switched identities, amnesia, backstabbing, lies yada yada yada I can write the rest in my sleep but idk, I’m in the mood for it and am actually kinda excited for the explosion of dramatics that’s sure to come. Having Charebelle in the lead role also helped my interest ‘cos I have developed a liking for her since Dok Soke for no apparent reason. I don’t need deep, inspiring plot, just keep it not-stupid and not-draggy and I’ll be happy. Good news for those interested, PRPR is being subbed on Viki!

Paen Rai Pai Ruk
Similar sounding title as the first one but this one is a romcom that’s in the vein of Suay Rerd Cherd Sod judging from the teaser (read the synopsis here). Film and Matt are super adorable in the BTS clips I’ve seen so far and it’s whetting my apetite for this lakorn. I won’t have to wait too long though, just read on baidu that it’s premiering on 18/3.

Madam Dun
This one I’ll have to wait for since the cast have just gone for the fitting. The story is none like what I’ve seen from lakorns till now. Ploy plays Madam Dun, an entertainment guru who discovers Mario the country boy and brings him into the entertainment world (thanks to Fia for this info). A refreshing story with a refreshing cast, I can’t wait! AND P’PLOY I LOVE ALL YOUR LOOKS AT THE FITTING! *retreats from creepy fangirl mode*

ETA
I expected Ploy and Mario to have a p/nong relationship and for the drama to be focused on the Thai ent industry but according to Lyn’s blog Mario will play Ploy’s love interest in MD, so will it not be that different from the typical lakorns except with an older woman/younger man pairing? Hmm, we shall see.

Anyone has other upcoming lakorns to rec?

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!

ETA

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.

Rak Khun Tao Fah ep 2

7 Aug

Things take a downward spiral for Phim and for me in ep2.

While Phim is ignoring Teera after their big fight at the end of ep1, he meets his ex Joy (can’t rem her chara’s name) on his flight to Fukuoka. Joy is going on a solo trip to nurse a broken heart and it’s clear she still harbours feelings for our Captain but Teera being a guy Teera, Joy’s subtle and none too subtle hints fly over his head and he is insistent that Phim will not be jealous. Phim is OF COURSE JEALOUS that Teera is wining and dining with a woman – his ex no less – in a foreign land and not answering her calls. In any case, Joy’s not gonna be Phim’s real problem here (I think the scriptwriter is saving Joy’s evil schemes for Cherry) and eventually they kiss and make up when Teera returns to Thailand. They get like 5 seconds of happiness planning their wedding AGAIN before Creepy Mom ruins it AGAIN. Then they fight AGAIN when Phim wonders aloud AGAIN if Creepy Mom is doing it on purpose. Seeing a pattern here anyone?

Ep 2 was pretty much a rehash of ep 1 minus the balm of the couple’s sweetness and I found myself ff through so much of it. Creepy Mom upgrades to Crazy Mom when she threw herself down a flight of stairs this time to stop the wedding. Whaaaaaat? I can’t comprehend. Some tricks used to be reserved for bitchy third wheels. Stop stealing them!

Other than my complete side-eyeing of Crazy Mom, Teera’s also kinda bland as the central character. There’s no ONE true pair for me to get invested in and root for here and the show hinges on Teera’s struggles with filial piety while trying to get a love life. It’s a more realistic premise than say, Sawan Biang, but I want to be entertained by a lakorn and entertained I am not.

Why did all these amazing people sign up for RKTF??? Argggg, Ken is still hot and yummy and so are all the ladies (Joy needs a new hairstyle though. Her forehead is rather distracting) but the plot! *bangs head on wall*

Is anyone sharing the pain with me? Or have you guys wisely gave this a pass?

Rak Khun Tao Fah ep 1

26 Jul

UPDATE: RKTF with Chinese subs
Anyone has news on Eng subs?

I sure am posting a lot on a drama whose plot I’d been panning since reading about it. XD I can’t help it, the cast is too amazing for me to resist taking a peak. I watched the first episode without subs but it wasn’t too hard to understand what was going on even with my limited lakorn-learned Thai (drama watching is definitely a legitimate language learning tool!!) and it reaffirmed both my distaste for the plot and my love for the cast.

– KEN AND PLOY NEED TO BE THE OTP IN ANOTHER LAKORN ASAP. I was a little disappointed that the lakorn didn’t show Teera and Pim’s courtship phase and started off with them already madly in love and ready for marriage but I guess there are too many relationships to cram into 12 (?) episodes so they gotta move fast! Despite the lack of development shown for this couple, Ken and Ploy had such amazing chemistry I had no problems buying into their love. Who needs plot when you have such beautiful people cuddling, kissing and being all kinds of adorable? Unfortunately it’s already the beginning of the end for our pretty couple had started fighting by the end of the episode thanks to Teera’s mom and I think Ploy will only be around for the next 1.5-2 episodes. I thought I’d never be able to ship Ken with anyone except Ann but apparently not so here’s hoping I’ll see Ken/Ploy in a lakorn with a better story.


narak tee sud ~~~

– Creepy mom is creepy. Ok, I get that this drama is about a mother’s love for her child and the child’s duty towards his mother but making yourself sick on purpose to the point of having to be warded in the ICU to wreck your son’s wedding is just wrong on so many levels. When Creepy Mom laid on the hospital bed and said ‘Teera loves mom more than a woman’ when she learned that he left the wedding for her (or something along that line), I was like WTFFFFFF. I’d understand if she hated Pim for some reason but it appears that she really doesn’t care who Teera dates as long as he doesn’t get married. Also, I initially thought Teera was an only son which would explained (slightly) Creepy Mom’s extreme attachment to her son but, unless my understanding is totally off, Teera has an older sister who still visits frequently after she got married. So what gives? Any parent out there who would like to tell me that this is a perfectly normal way to feel about your child?

I initially said I was going to pass over this lakorn but I think I will be watching it after all for the pretty and ff any scenes with Creepy Mom inside. I can even watch it without subs since I don’t care about plot at all!

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!

I’m bored.

Throw me a fandom question. It can be on anything. Dramas, music, manga whatever.

Still working on my review of ‘Mae Ka Khanom Wan’.

Because random post is random …


Ploy and Dome needs to stop being so freaking perfect together if they want me people to stop shipping them.

Dome/Ploy ship post

28 Sep

 

*update with a recent Dome/Ploy vid*

Dome has broken up with his gf Paint though he says they didn’t ‘break up’ because they weren’t bf/gf to begin with … erm, ok, whatever you say. When asked about her response to Dome being single again, Ploy says there will be many girls queuing up now and as for her, she will praise Dome as being cute. (all the above translated from info gotten on baidu forum)

Dome and Ploy went through a lot in their relationship and I don’t know the details but seems like Dome was a bit of a playboy and Ploy finally had enough. Ploy looks really happy with her current bf Navin and as her fan I hope she gets all the love and happiness but a part of me still secretly ships Dome/Ploy because they are so darn cute together.

Their reconciliation at Dome’s concert after their first break-up. Looks like a scene right out of a drama.
