Twins. Another not very favorite trope of mine, overdone and usually done badly. But when it works like in Lom Sorn Ruk? 😍. There are a few dramas and lakorns that does things right, and more importantly, it looks like this trope is not going away. Song Sanaeha (2020) is also coming up, starring Kimberley Voltemas […]

Action lakorns have never been of interest to me. There are some genres Thailand lakorns excel at, like romance and revenge lakorns, and others which have lots of need for improvement. Week 27, action lakorns. And to completely change the subject because I did not want to post a mv about an action lakorn, love […]

Some stories are retold over and over again, passed down from generation and generation. Many fairy tales, folk tales, fables, so many repeated and told over and over again. This week, I want to revisit the stories told over and over again. Remakes. Legends. Fairy tales. Puer Tur (2016) synopsis: Chanon is a responsible, enthusiastic and […]

Childhood love. Never really been a fan. But I have to admit it is a very popular trope in Asian dramas and even in some lakorns. Hmm, what about unrequited love or just love in general? How about family love, siblings, or what about friendship? Or bromance? This week is the week of love in […]

There’s no particular theme this week, although I do want to talk about some of my favorite actors and actresses. I also want to talk more about workplace dramas and the lack of them in lakornland except there’s not much to say. Japan has lots of workplace doramas, and Korea also has their fair share, […]

Second chances, regrets, missed opportunities. I think we’ve all thought about those things on a daily basis. It can all devolve into a mess of “What ifs”. So the theme of this week is missed connections. Neung Nai Suang (2015) Poom, a beautiful girl with no parents, meets Neung at a party. Neung is a handsome […]

🥰😍😻🤩😘 Marriages!!!! Marriages of convenience, forced marriages, arranged marriages, substitute brides, fake marriages, failing marriages, you name it! We’re talking marriages this week and I love it! It’s my favorite trope by far. Lucky for me, lakornland is rife with marriages. Unluckily for me, I had to make some choices. Naturally, I couldn’t choose, so […]

This week, I thought I’ll take a look at the paranormal in lakorns and elsewhere. Not ghosts, there are sooo many lakorns about ghosts out there. But about paranormal/supernatural activity and creatures. Fantasy lakorns, in other words. With a nang’ek who turns into a bird at night, fairy godmothers, and wishes, Leh Nangfah (2014) definitely had […]

People wear masks in public, hiding their true nature. And sometimes, the pretense continues in private life as well. Disguises, hidden/secret identities, mysteries, secrets. This week, so stay tuned. With nang’ek Kadesurang in Bpoop Phaeh Saniwaat (2018), she doesn’t have a choice in pretending to be someone else. She’s in another woman’s body, so she […]
