Monday’s Meeting: Subbing Now And What to Watch

Well, I was busy watching dramas and finishing them last week, so now I’m looking for what to watch next. I just finished Mia Archeep, The Romance of Tiger and Rose and Missing Persons (all were pretty great!) and now what? I’m still slow watching some dramas, but nothing I feel that compelled to watch. Time to catch up on what’s being subbed now in the subbing community. Maybe I’ll just try to finish more dramas this month, but regardless, I see a number of subbers are going back and subbing older lakorns, which, Yeah! I like that.

THIPPY

Thippy picked up two currently airing lakorns, revenge lakorn Fah Mee Tawan (2020) and horror lakorn Ngao Boon and is continuing to sub an older lakorn from before, Prao (2014) or Proud in English.

Fah Mee Tawan (2020) – Paul hates Net, the woman who harmed and took the position of his mother, kicked her out of the house causing her to die in pain. 20 years later, Paul returns and finds Net owns the jewelry company owned by him. In revenge, Paul deliberately seduces Net. But Paul falls in love with Naen, the girl Net raised at the suggestion of Paul’s father, although she doesn’t love Naen. Singkorn is Net’s lover, but he has plans for Naen. Singkorn has known Naen for many years and has never given up on his intentions to Naen, which makes Naen feel very awkward.

Ngao Boon – Sita lost her father and must face the bad people that intend to steal her inheritance. The good thing she has her boyfriend Worachon as her moral support. Besides the bad people, she must also face her parents who became pretas (hungry ghosts) who received their karma with torture. The only way they can be free is for Sita to release all 12 types of pretas. How will Sita find a solution? And will forgiveness be the answer to their freedom or not? (Source:ohsweetHaven)

NEKO

Neko also picked up a currently airing drama, Kwam Song Jum See Jang (2020), but is also continuing to sub an older lakorn, Baan Sila Dang (2015) which is notable as one of the few twin lakorns that actually feature twin actresses!

Kwam Song Jum See Jang (2020) – Pang is an ordinary girl who fights for justice, kind-hearted, and fights the obstacles that life brings her. Pang has an older brother that she loves dearly, but was separated since she was a child. It’s been over a decade since Pang’s older brother disappeared from her life. She has prayed throughout the years that she will be able to see him again. On the other hand, Phu is a stern and serious person with a career, family, status but with just one exception; no memory of his childhood. One day, Pang meets Phu at a company she starts working at thinking that her co-worker is a good and warm-hearted person. She confesses to him that her first impression of him was that she thought he was her older brother, but puts it aside. In the end, she discovers that he’s her older brother. What will happen to these siblings? (Source: Thairath)

MUSE

Muse is currently English subbing just one lakorn right now, Duay Rang Atitharn (2018), after finishing a slew of currently airing lakorns, including Leh Game Rak (2020), Mia Archeep (2020) and Peek Hong (2020). Hats off to this team. They also will begin subbing a number of lakorns airing later in September and early next month such as Roy Leh Marnya (2020).

Duay Rang Atitharn (2018) – Worada is a naive and weak young woman. She’s the daughter of a rich man and his unlawful wife, even though her mother was the first wife. Her father has a married wife (legal one) and has another daughter who is younger than Worada. Worada’s step-mother and half-sister hate her. Her half-sister hates her mostly also because she loves Krit, Worada’s lover.

One day, Krit tells Worada that he wants to see her at night. That night she was waiting for Krit and was hit on the head without knowing who did it. When she wakes up, she finds herself inside the underground shelter (that she and Krit accidently discovered and kept it as a secret). She thinks that Krit wanted to kill her. Inside the shelter, she is hungry, cold and tired. Before she dies, she makes a strong vow that if she is born again, she will be a much stronger person and seek revenge against the people who hurt her. Then she dies.

Worada was born again as Nattamon. Nattamon is a girl who has a supernatural power. She is a very strong girl, but always has nightmares. When she grows up, she finds out why she was reborn and starts to seek revenge. When she meets Krit again (he is in his 40’s while Nattamon is in her 20’s), she thinks that he is the person who tried to kill her. Meanwhile, Krit has been single ever since Worada died and is happy to see the woman he always loved came back. (Source: AsianFuse Wiki)

What to Watch

I’m still watching Stranger 2 (2020), but the plot is so riddled with legal terms and maneuvers that honestly I know I’m missing a lot of the nuances of what’s happening. This is one drama that you have to rewatch to gain a full understanding of. I might still continue watching Prom Pissawat, and So Wayree, but I’m not sure I have anything more to say about either drama.

Was going to finish Prom Pissawat since I’m halfway through it, but really not feeling it right now.

I do want to finish Likit Haeng Jan and 2017’s Korean drama Black, or maybe Ra Raerng Fai or Plerng Prang Tian.

I’ve barely watched any Japanese doramas this year, so I do want to start more, maybe a short 4 episode drama like Kokoro no Kizu wo Iyasu to Iu Koto. I’ll probably also catch a few episodes of Fah Mee Tawan (2020), Kwam Song Jum See Jang (2020) and/or Duay Rang Atitharn (2018), but I doubt I’ll watch these series in full. So that’s my plans for the rest of September. Lots of exciting dramas I’m looking forwards to in October!
