Here’s part 2 of 2019 comedy lakorns. I like going back and looking at what was subbed and what wasn’t. I’m always hoping to find some undiscovered gem. By the way, obviously I chose to cover the lakorns that are interesting to me, and not every 2019 comedy lakorn is covered. Part 1 on English subbed comedy lakorns is here.
NOT ENGLISH SUBBED
Madame Baan Na (2019) – Kaopun is a girl who, in order to investigate the case of the murder of a person close to her, changes her personality and agrees to a fake marriage with a diplomat.
Reason it’s interesting? Welllll. There’s the whole marriage thing if you like that kind of thing, but Paparwadee (Pinkploy) Chansamorn also starred in Khing Kor Rar Khar Kor Rang and she did a good job there, so can she pull off comedy?
Tok Kra Dai Hua Jai Ploy Jone (2019) – Roikaew sacrificed her college tuition to get married with the head sheriff because he saved her father’s life from a gang who uses drugs. At the end of their wedding, the gang member interrupted and killed the sheriff. The sheriff’s last wish was for Roikaew to take care of his 2 kids.
Years pass and Cholchat has finished his studies. He became the new sheriff of the town. Coincidentally, Roikaew’s father is the leader of the town so that means Roikaew and Cholchat get to meet each other every day to help their community. Cholchat’s girlfriend Supasi came back from America and came to stay with Cholchat and his worker.
She dislikes Roikaew because they both used to go to the same university but then she would taunt her because she didn’t get to finish school.
As Cholchat got to know Roikaew more, he was falling for her and forgetting about Supasi. At the same time, problems erupted in the community as drugs were being used again.
Reason it’s interesting? This is a remake of a 2003 lakorn starring Tik Jesadaporn and Kathaleeya McIntosh and the old version had a good reputation.
Sao Noi Roy Lan View (2019) – Wanjai is a young girl who has the talent to sing, but her mother was against her becoming a singer. One day, a close friend secretly records videos of Wanjai singing and uploads them on youtube – she became an internet idol overnight and received the nickname “Sao Noi Roy Lan View”. Various music labels want to sign with her, including Anawin. He wants to prove himself to his father, who is the owner of a giant luk thung (country) music company.
Reason it’s interesting? Rags to riches tale, young love, music, singing.
Pleng Ruk Pleng Bpeun (2019) -Two guys who grew up in a temple are misunderstood as jailbirds. They come back, then meet a tomboyish girl and a undercover policewoman who disguised herself for an investigation. At first the four are enemies, but later romantic relationships are developed.
Reason it’s interesting? Music plays a part of this lakorn, and comedy, it reminds me of Weir’s lakorn, Poo Bao Indy Yayee Inter (2019). I also think the premise is promising.
